Bacon is always a problem because of the sugar. You're caramelizing the sugars on the cast iron. no surprise it can be difficult to clean. I've taken to baking bacon in the oven while i cook the rest of the meal. Less mess and hassle and clean up is easy. I'll still do bacon in the pan if I'm going to follow up with some vegetables to pick up that bacon fond.
