Corn bread recipes with oil or butter are ok, but the bacon fat in this gives it a little tang that is undeniable.

Bill this is an excellent corn bread recipe! I made pulled pork barbeque over the weekend the your corn bread was just perfect to go with it. I really enjoyed the addition of the Monterey Jack Cheese and the bacon grease which helped to give it great texture and flavor. Thank you, Bill for this great recipe!
