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!

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.

Buttery Perfection

 

I found Nueske's after finally getting fed up with never being able to find decent bacon at the grocery stores. I am the guy you see picking up every pack at the store -- looking at the front, the back -- looking for the right thickness and fat content, only to settle on one less-than-satisfactory pack after handling a hundred of them. I have done this for the last time now that I have discovered Nueske's. When my first order of five pounds of Applewood Smoked Bacon arrived, I was amazed that each of the packs was exactly what I look for in bacon -- I couldn't wait to try it. My dinner for the evening of my Nueske's delivery was bacon, and simple as it may sound, it was one of the best dinners I had eaten in a long, long time. I couldn't wait to eat it as the smoky bacon smell wafted from the griddle -- the beautiful strips cooked perfectly and hardly even changed size from when they were uncooked -- there was very little grease to drain from the griddle and the spitting you get from other water-filled bacon was near nonexistent -- my cook top stayed clean! My first taste of the bacon was Heaven -- pure bliss. This bacon has a buttery quality with a smoky taste that can only be described as perfection. I ordered my first five pounds last week and I have eaten so much bacon, I just placed my second order for five more pounds. Nueske's has a new customer for life in me.

Salty but flavor GREAT

 

I loved the smoke flavor of the bacon and how it retained its size after preparation. However, I gave it 3 stars because I removed a star for tasting to me "overly salty and a star for not being a thick sliced bacon.

Dull

 

Thin bacon was tasteless, no taste of Applewood at all. No flavor to it & the lean part was very chewy. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

Not crispy almost inedible from salt

 

This bacon will not crisp up under any circumstance. It is very salty. So salty that your mouth will hurt from simply eating a piece or two. To put this in perspective I don't think McDonalds puts enough salt on their fries so I have to add extra salt. I really like salt. I cannot eat this bacon because it is WAY to salty. There is no flavor other than salt.

Way too smokey

 

Got a lb of the thick smoked bacon as a Christmas gift, the smoke was so overpowering I literally threw half of it in the trash. I absolutely love bacon, and have tried so many, so I was shocked that this highly rated bacon was such a letdown. It felt like I was dipping it in a bottle of liquid smoke with every bite.

JUST BOUGHT 134 POUNDS OF THIS BACON!!!!

 

7 or 8 years ago i began getting this bacon when i would travel through Wisconsin as an over-the-road truck driver. I now work in the office of a trucking company and have everyone here hooked on this bacon. We just had one of our drivers stop and pick up 134 POUNDS of this bacon! This is for a total of 8 people in our company that wanted MORE NUESKE'S BACON!!! I personally ordered 30 pounds for my own family! The is the best bacon i have ever had from ANYWHERE! try it, you will not be disappointed!

bacon thick, thin, or in between--order it the way you want it

 

Best bacon you can find, usually very meaty. People have complained about it being too thin, not crispy-- READ YOUR CHOICES, THEN ORDER IT THE WAY YOU WANT IT- AND LEARN TO COOK IT CRISP , IF THAT IS THE WAY YOU WANT IT ! !

Love it but can't afford it anymore

 

I adore Nueske's products. Used to buy it all the time when the family Homestead was in Wittenberg. Sadly, those members of the family have passed and the Homestead is gone. Also, sadly, my financial situation is bad and I'm unable to afford Nueske's anymore. Unless I win the lottery. Then all bets are off!

Oh, so wonderful!!

 

Superb bacon with wonderful flavor. Best bacon I've ever had!! I've bought it for myself many times & will continue to buy it as my only breakfast bacon. I've sent it to friends & family often & the recipients usually like it so much they start ordering it for themselves. Like me, some become so 'addicted' they won't buy anything else! My only criticism is that the medium-thick bacon it a bit thinner than I'd like & the 'bacon steaks' are way to thick for me. Keep on doin' what you're doin' to make your bacon Neuske's!

Simply divine!

 

Just the best tasting bacon ever! My family will eat as much as I can cook! Smoky, but not overpoweringly so. Sweet, but not too sweet, with enough salt to balance it out. Don't know how I've lived this long without it!

Best taste

 

Boy, I love this bacon! The taste, the smell when cooking, and the fact that it really does not shrink much. I always wait for a sale of a free pound with an order. By the time I finish that, there's another sale. Life is good.

Fries up great

 

I love the bacon. It doesn’t fry away like other store bacons. The wieners are the best I’ve ever had. I have been satisfied with everything.

The Best

 

I have purchased your bacon for 30-plus years, and it is always the best... not too salty with just the right amount of smoke. I received a gift of cob smoked bacon from Vermont. It was good, but does not come close to Nueske's.
