  Hickory Smoked Country Bacon (4 one pound packs)

Our Price: $30.00

Product Code: HSCB

We hand rub each side of our Country Bacon with a cure of salt, pepper, and brown sugar. After a few weeks of curing and aging, the sides are smoked whole for at least 48 hours in our smokehouse out back, which is fed by a wood stove full of hickory logs. These simple and time honored practices result in an extremely flavorful smokey bacon that's as enjoyable by itself, slice by slice, as it is on a sandwich or added to one of your favorite recipes. Our Hickory Smoked Country Bacon comes thick sliced in one pound packs. Each order contains four one pound packs.

Real McCoy February 15, 2015
Reviewer: Jerry Vargo from Valley Grove, WV United States  
Great flavor for the person who like's smoke. You may also bake in oven at 350 for about 20 to 25 minute's on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I drained off fat during baking process. Main thing is do not over cook.

Best bacon I've ever had February 3, 2015
Reviewer: Jason Istre from Baton Rouge, LA United States  
I first bought this bacon simply because David Chang gave it such rave reviews in "In the Mind of a Chef". I figured that this bacon would simply be a gimmick, but was sorely and completely wrong.

It arrived. Four one pound unrefrigerated packs of pork were at my door in August... in South Louisiana. There is no need for refrigeration, though, for this stuff is cured. It's the real deal. I brought it into my home and even through the vacuum packing I could SMELL it. I immediately opened one pack and fried it up. The very strong smell of the bacon permeated the house, and I shortly had bacon nirvana in my mouth.

Make no mistake, this stuff is strong. It is powerful. It is what bacon should be. If you don't like smoke, Mr. Benton's bacon is not for you. If you love smoke and traditional down home bacon properly cured, you need this bacon in your life.

Do it. Just trust me. Buy the bacon.

I've been deprived... February 2, 2015
Reviewer: Glenn Petriello (Glennmade Confections Inc.) from Hoboken, NJ United States  
For the past 30 years I've been deprived of the best, most flavorful bacon in the world. Any other bacon can't even compare to what Allan does. I love how my apartment still smells like hickory days after I cooked some.

I look forward to working with Allan and incorporating and spotlighting his bacon into chocolate confections for my artisanal chocolate company.

Thank you Allan for keeping the Benton's tradition alive. You're the man!

every pack unique December 24, 2014
Reviewer: Paul Miller from Plano, TX United States  
The occasional crazy double flap strip or the extra wide strip or the extra thick strip or big ended nub strip -- these pound packs are all unique and hand packed. This bacon and custom fitted sportcoats are my two splurges in life

Makes the house smell great November 18, 2014
Reviewer: Francis Linardo from Knoxville, TN United States  
Anyone else leave the pan of grease on the stove for the entire day after cooking some Benton's Bacon?

That great bacon smell fills the house for the whole weekend. Love it!
