Hickory Smoked Country Bacon (4 one pound packs)

Our Price: $32.00

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.

Great Bacon when used right. February 3, 2017
Reviewer: John Thompson from Eldersburg, MD United States  
Bacon, like most meats is versatile. You chop bacon up to put into recipes, you top sandwhiches with it, and sometimes you just have a few slices with your breakfast.

If you are using this bacon as a side item with breakfast you will see polarizing results. This bacon is intense. And can be a little hard to take solo if you aren't prepared. Some of my family didn't like it all by itself. I could understand this.

But on sandwiches or in recipes it is INSANELY good. In some recipes you want the bacon to stand out. This can be difficult when it competes with many other ingredients. Sure you could add more bacon, or you can just add Benton's Bacon. This bacon cuts through all flavors to let the diner know it's there.

So for breakfasts I'll use a flavorful but less intense bacon, but this is my favorite bacon to cook with.

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
