Description

Slow Applewood smoking delivers unmatched award-winning flavor.

We could brag that our bacon is so good it’s won national acclaim from The New York Times, Chicago Tribune and Wine Spectator Magazine. And we could toot our own horn after being named a Gold Award winner in the Specialty Food Association’s national competition an unprecedented four times. We could also mention that it’s the ONLY bacon select top chefs around the world will allow in their recipes. But we’d rather you taste for yourself.

Have you ever tasted bacon that’s been slow smoked over glowing Applewood embers? Bacon so lean you can actually watch it sizzle with minimal shrinkage? Bacon so rich with flavor you want to close your eyes and savor every last, delicious bite? This. Is. It.

Sliced medium or thin, in 1 lb. packages.

Store & Prepare

To Store: Refrigerate immediately. Vacuum-packaged bacon will keep for 12 weeks in refrigerator, or up to 1 year in freezer. Once opened, use within 1 week.

To Fry: For best results, place bacon in unheated skillet. Cook over MEDIUM LOW heat. Turn frequently until desired crispness is attained. (You'll notice less shrinkage than with other brands.)

Microwave: On microwave-safe plate, place bacon slices side by side between layers of paper toweling. Cook on HIGH for the following approximate times:

Thick Slice
2 slices - 2 minutes
4 slices - 3 minutes
6 slices - 4 minutes

Thin Slice
2 slices - 1 minutes
4 slices - 2 minutes
6 slices - 3 minutes

Oven-Baked: Preheat oven to 350°F.  Place slices close together on rimmed baking sheet (rim prevents grease from dripping on oven's heating elements).  For easiest cleanup, place parchment paper on sheet prior to placing bacon (make sure paper doesn't hang over edges of baking sheet).  Bake 20 minutes or until desired doneness; no need to turn bacon during cooking.  Place bacon on paper toweling to drain.

Very fatty bacon in recent order

 

For years I've been a fan and promoter of Nueske's applewood smoked bacon. In a recent order 3 of the 5 pounds of bacon were extremely fatty. The grease rendered from cooking was abundant. I was able to give the 2 leaner packages as gifts, holding back the fatty ones. I am now reluctant to order again. I had previously given 5 stars to Nueske's bacon, but this latest fatty shipment really disappointed.

Completely satisfied with entire order!

 

Your smoked bacon is great! But I can't pick just one of your applewood smoked meats, because they're all DELICIOUS!
