Al Benton cures his meats in an ancient smokehouse in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, with little consideration for the modern world. Benton's meats are renowned for being heavy on the smoke and a perfect food for folk who love strong and bold flavor. Even though Benton is a legend in the South, he is still hands-on and present in all steps of the curing process. He is another famed traditionalist who is forwarding the cause of the American charcuterie renaissance by embracing heritage breed pigs. His strong, salty, smoky bacon has always enjoyed a huge following, and we are thrilled to be working with him to bring his great art to Heritage customers.
