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 […]

Another Baconfest Chicago has come and gone and let us tell you: BFC 2014 – the sixth annual – was the biggest and best Baconfest we’ve ever seen – and we’ve seen our fair share of pork parties.  Three sessions comprised of over 170 of Chicago’s best restaurants competing for the coveted Golden Rasher award […]

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 […]

We hope you enjoy this sweet, lightly salty, subtly smoky treat from Chef Dave Martin, using our Wild Cherrywood Smoked Bacon.  When we make these, the whole batch disappears really quickly and people are amazed to learn that bacon is an ingredient.  Chef Dave served these for us at the 2012 Food Network New York […]

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 […]
