Pork Jowl Bacon
If you love our standard Pork Bacon, you’ll be delighted by our Pork Jowl Bacon. This tender and rich bacon comes from the pig’s cheeks and has all of the qualities we love: the deep flavor of pasture-raised pork is balanced by salt and cherry wood smoke, while the fat and salt mingle to create a crisp and almost spongy texture when cooked.
This bacon is made from the small cut of meat found in the animal’s cheeks. (Our cure does include some sodium nitrate. see our FAQs for more information.)
We think that baking your bacon is the way to go. Baking needs less supervision, cooks the bacon evenly, and reduces the risk of getting splattered by bacon grease. We suggest baking it in a 350 degree oven for 12 to 20 minutes.
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
