Approximately 5 pounds (pre-cure weight) of the freshest bacon you will ever eat.  We don't make it until you order it.  The cure time is 10 days, the dry time is 2 days, 1 day for smoking and chilling, 1 day to package it for shipment.  The process takes 14 days from the time I receive the Pork Belly or the Beef Belly. Plan ahead!

It comes in a full slab so you can cut it as thick or thin as you like.  It is a cured meat product, so it doesn't have to ship to you cold...just put it in the fridge or freezer when you get it.  We offer 2 kinds of pork bacon..."Simply Salty" with fresh cracked pepper (the best version like you get at the supermarket), or Maple Brown Sugar...mmmmm, delicious!  We also offer Beef Bacon for those who can't or won't eat pork bacon.  All 3 versions smoked over hardwoods and ready to cook and eat.
