Heritage pork has more marbling resulting in more tender and juicy meat
We send our 100% heritage Berkshire bellies to Smoking Goose in Indianapolis. There curemaster Chris Eley dry-rubs them and cures them under brown sugar, sea salt, and Indiana maple sugar. They are then smoked over apple wood. We loved this bacon the second we tasted it and are proud to add it to our list of delicious bacon produced by the country’s best curemasters. We especially love that this bacon is smoked using a real old-school smoker, not the case with most modern bacon today.
We first met Chris at the Good Food Awards and fell in love with his wide selection of charcuterie. A respected member of the young talented generation of American curemasters using old world techniques while using sustainably produced ingredients, Chris is an active member in his community through his curehouse and shop. We are so excited to feature our first bacon with him using bellies from Newman Berkshire Farm.
The secret to great pork is to start off with great ingredients, and nothing beats our storied Heritage breeds — Berkshire, Red Wattle, Duroc, Gloucestershire Old Spot, Large Black, and Tamworth. Each breed comes from a different culinary tradition, and boasts a distinctive, nuanced flavor.
