This is called the Ultimate Bacon Sampler because we guarantee an ultimate gourmet bacon-eating experience. Our dry-cured and smoked bacons are cured with simple, high-quality ingredients before they are aged for flavor and slow smoked over real applewood or hickory wood chips.  The pepper coated & maple flavored hickory-smoked bacons, both have those flavors mixed into the ingredients during the curing process.

 

Our city bacon is brined for flavor and lightly smoked for your eating enjoyment. Each flavor in this sampler has its own unique twist but is equally satisfying to the taste buds. You will find all of our bacons are expertly packaged for safe arrival to their final destination.

Facts about Dry Cured Bacon


Dry-cured bacon is cured or preserved by the application of a dry mixture of salt, brown sugar, and pepper to the surface of the meat. To anyone who is familiar with true old-fashioned cured bacon, the resulting taste and flavor of this meat is delicious. Additionally, this means NO WATER is added during this process. It results in better flavor, a meatier bite, and leaves you with more bacon after cooking.

Dry-cured bacon may be frozen with excellent results according to many of our customers.
