If you're marking the day by cooking your dad a hot breakfast and you would like to serve him the very best bacon that money can buy then you're in luck because the good folks over at Australian Pork Limited have just announced the winners of Australia's Best Bacon 2018.

Campbell's Superior Meats in West Pymble, NSW has taken home the coveted title of Best Bacon, beating 125 other entries to bag the top honours, the judges describe it as having an "excellent and neat appearance and great salty smoke profile." Coffs Harbour's Big Country Meats n Foods got the gold gong in the full rasher category.

The awards were announced over a bacon-packed breakfast at A1 Canteen in Sydney this week and you can find the best bacon closest to you by checking out the full list of state winners at pork.com.
