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.

It's okay (don't get mad at me) November 11, 2016
Reviewer: Kyle Winters from Denver, CO United States  
Benton's is far above the garbage sold at grocery stores, and in some ways, it's better than the bacon sold by boutique grocers bc it's not cured with celery powder and false marketing.

I've sampled bacon from all over the world. I even paid $15/lb shipped from Benton's to sample this bacon after reading praises from chefs around the world.   The smokey smell that through the package is intoxicating.  I was disappointed though, because I (and others), weren't able to taste much smoke flavor in the actual bacon, after pan frying it per the packaging recommendations. Its safe to say that it smells much stronger than it tastes. Furthermore, it was a bit more salty than what I prefer in my slabs. Maybe I'm splitting hairs, or maybe I firmly know what I like to taste in a strip of bacon, but I wasn't that impressed, when compared with my own work and I guess with all the praise and recommendations from other chefs, I thought I was going to get to sample some of the world's best bacon

Our family are bacon lovers. But we never knew bacon could taste like this. Hands down, the best we have ever had.

Amazing! September 8, 2016
Reviewer: Emily Smoot from Eugene, OR United States  
My partner is from Tennessee and recommended Benton's Bacon to me, so I ordered it as a surprise for his birthday. We are in Oregon, so I was so excited to be able to order it online. He was FLOORED! Needless to say, it's amazing. Thank you.

Absolutely the best! July 8, 2016
Reviewer: Larry Brodsky from Trent Woods, NC United States  
I have long been searching for a bacon this good. No wimpy apple or cherry smoked bacon for me. This is the most hickory I have ever tasted and this does not have too much fat, much more meat than grocery store high end varieties. Salty? Sure, but just like good cured meat should be. I have found bacon heaven!
