I use Maple Leaf or Campfire bacon. MMM...bacon! :) Some of the lesser known brands *may* have gluten, usually hiding in any spcies that are used. However, MG is right in that most bacon is gluten-free. I find that larger companies usually make many of their products "allergen" free.

Note: both of these brands are packaged...so eat away! :)

Most meat is ok, but you do have to make sure that chicken or turkey hasn't had broth added to it to "plump" it up. I also notice that you're not buying packaged meat. The one problem here is that if they cut it for you and there are other meats that have been cut before you that contain gluten, you're contaminated. For that reason I buy only packaged meat (with the exception of deli meat from this one store that only sells gluten-free meat).

If broth added to to poultry (or any meat) has anything with gluten in it it must by USDA law be clearly listed. This is a separate requirement from the allergen law and has been in place for years.
