Thanks to everyone who judged this year’s N.A.S.F.T.

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 […]
