Many of you who are familiar with the summer afternoon cookouts at the Nueske’s Company Store in Wittenberg, Wisconsin have asked us for the recipe for our famously smoky, loaded-with-bacon baked beans that we serve out of “Bob’s Fancy Camper”. For those of you who haven’t had the chance to enjoy our smoked brats and […]

Traditional spaghetti carbonara is made with pancetta and heavy on the fresh-cracked black pepper, so we make ours with Applewood Smoked Pepper Coated Bacon, which covers all the bases and adds some extra sweet, smokiness to the dish.

BLT season is almost upon us.  The farmer’s markets up here in Wisconsin are starting to open and soon the market tables will be full of produce in addition to the pre-garden season tables laden with jars of local honey, last season’s salsa or pickles, and pure, golden maple syrup.  Soon there will be more […]

These are one of our favorite appetizers right now because they taste like summer, especially if you can get your hands on some really good little grape tomatoes.  We’ve been getting lucky and have been able to get tomatoes that don’t taste like they were grown in the deep freeze.  The sweet-tart tomato, creamy-milky mozzarella, smoky […]

A few weeks back, on Twitter, Grub Report shared what seemed to us to be a pretty good idea: They took a recent gift of Pimento Cheese, made a sandwich out of it, and fried that sandwich in Nueske’s bacon fat.  People come to us with terrific ideas for our bacon – and its leavings – on a […]

For anyone who’s going to be in our neck of The Northwoods this weekend (Oct 4th & 5th, 2013), you’re invited to our open-to-the-public 80th Anniversary Celebration.  We’ll have loads of food, music, prizes, and family-friendly fun… and if it rains, we have many large tents to keep you dry and shelter the weekend’s festivities.  Event […]

Our Applewood Smoked Pepper-Coated Bacon is a terrific bacon for cooking with, especially this time of year.  We create our “pepper bacon” just like our classic Applewood Smoked Bacon; with specially-selected, hand-trimmed bellies that get our signature long, slow smoke in the Nueske family’s smokehouses, over glowing embers of sweet Wisconsin applewood. The step that […]

This past Saturday, Nueske’s had the pleasure of attending the Isthmus Beer & Cheese Festival in Madison, Wisconsin.  Let us assure you, there was no shortage of good brews, excellent cheeses, or Applewood Smoked Meats.  For $40.00 a ticket, thirsty (and hungry) festival-goers from Madison and beyond flocked to the Alliant Energy Center Exhibition Hall […]
