This recipe is really good. When you cater it to your own tastes, it's stellar. Next time I'm going to double the crab, and prob lose some bacon, because I think it tastes more like an Easy Corn and Bacon Chowder. Which, obviously, my husband isn't complaining about. ;D But I loves me my seafood. I've had much success with cooking the bacon first, then crushing into pieces once it's cooled. The other times I made this, I spent 30 minutes just trying to cut the uncooked fatty bacon into pieces. If you like potatoes, use two, and cook them fully in the microwave. Not 30 seconds - It'll take a few minutes. If you like a soupier chowder (opposed to a thick saucy one), use less flour. I think I use 3-4 TBS. Definitely crush the bouillon cube before dissolving in milk; otherwise use powdered bouillon.
