This bacon is smoked with real southern juniper berries and hickory hardwood, creating a truly unique Black Forest flavor. Juniper Smoked Bacon has no equal in flavor. This is as close as Nodine's get to "regular" bacon and it's anything but ordinary. Just heat to crisp and serve.Nodine's Smokehouse Inc. was started back in 1969 as a small custom smokehouse in Goshen, Connecticut. Over the many years of hard work and dedication, this small family business outgrew the small processing plant located at the farm in Goshen. In 1989, the company moved to a remodeled and modernized facility. At the new production and shipping facility, while using the finest U.S.D.A. inspected ingredients, Nodine's has been able to capture the Old World Gourmet quality and flavor that's missing in most high volume facilities, while consistently maintaining high production.Thick Sliced.
