Hog Heaven Country Bacon is traditional, country bacon! It's cured and smoked just like the Romans did thousands of years ago. This bacon contains no nitrates, nitrites, or MSG. It can be shipped without refrigeration, but it's best to refrigerate or freeze upon arrival. *Please note that this bacon is dry cured, therefore it is salt cured. If you are not a fan of salty foods this bacon would be better for cooking, and not by itself. If you love salt and find yourself pouring it on everything, you will absolutely love this bacon! One 16 oz. package included.
