Tread lightly, because this thick-cut bacon has been known to ruin people. We crafted our bacon curing process to strike the right balance of salt and cherry wood smoke. When you apply this old world method to bacon that was raised in the woods, the result is incredible.
Bacon comes from the belly of the pig. We take the belly and cure it with salt, sugar, and sodium nitrate. There's a lot of discussion about the use of sodium nitrate, a natural salt and antioxidant, that has been used to cure meat for thousands of years. Sodium Nitrate is a natural occurring chemical compound that is found in water, soil, plants, and our own bodies. We use sodium nitrates to help preserve our cured products, so that you can feel extra good about the food you eat.
Bake your bacon! We suggest baking on a sheet pan (with a drip grate if you have one) in a 350 degree oven for 12 to 20 minutes. We always say once you can smell bacon, stand by the oven because it is almost done.
Not just a piece of meat
Great flavor starts in the field. At Porter Road, we partner with farmers who raise their animals on pasture, for a difference you can taste.Learn more about our process
