Broadbent Hickory Smoked Berkshire Bacon

Broadbent Hickory Smoked Berkshire Bacon

Heritage breed, hickory smoked, & dry cured from Kentucky.

This is one of the country's last traditional dry cured country bacons. Eating it is like having a really big tannic red wine at the end of your meal or a hunk of Bayley Hazen Blue cheese for lunch. It's so intensely flavored it's not for everyone.

We've sold Broadbent's bacon for years, but for the first time in 2021 we're now getting bacon made with heritage breed pork. The Berkshire hogs are raised humanely on pasture. The bellies are dry cured with salt, sugar and nitrite for a week. It never goes into a brine solution, so moisture actually leaves the slabs while they cure, intensifying the flavors of the meat. The slabs are then smoked over hickory for three or four days. The end result is a great piece of pork, and a little bit goes a long way.
