Sometimes, it really pays off to eat meat, like when you walk into an old-time meat shop like Smoky Davis, which has been keeping Treasure Valley carnivores happy since 1953. There are the fine cuts of beef and pork, the melt-in-your-mouth beef jerky, homemade ropes of pepperoni, in-house smoked fish and a bevy of made-in-Idaho products. But for our money, nothing--absolutely nothing--beats the bacon. In fact, we're drooling a little as we write this. Excuse us a moment, we have to go grab a pound of the thick-cut, pepper-cured, applewood-smoked deliciousness right now.
