Black Pig Meat Co. Bacon, Set of 3
This is bacon the way it was meant to be: Smoky, salty, sweet and succulent. Chefs Duskie Estes and John Stewart, the husband-and-wife team behind Black Pig Meat Company and the farm-to-table ZAZU restaurant and farm in Sonoma, California, start with belly cuts from sustainably farmed, pasture-raised heritage pigs from the Pacific Northwest. The pigs are raised without antibiotics and hormones and are allowed to roam freely. The chefs slow cure the meat with a brown-sugar dry rub for nearly a month, infusing it with complex sweetness, and then slow-smoke it over applewood for 12 hours.The thick-cut slabs stay plump when they cook up, for meaty, chewy slices that offer a satisfying snap when you bite into them. Three 12 oz. packages, 9-12 slices per package. Ships cold, with ice packs. Made in USA.
