Just The Facts

Nueske's Bacon

Our chefs have selected Applewood Smoked Bacon from Nueske’s diverse and delicious assortment of smoked goods. Commonly used for smoking a wide variety of meats, applewood is preferred for its mild and fruity flavors. Using the same century-old recipe, Nueske’s imports spices and blends them by hand, then patiently smokes the meat over glowing embers of sweet applewood.

 

Bacon Dreams Come True

What happens when you combine the classic American dream with bacon? Meet the Nueskes, a family from Wittenberg, Wis., whose legendary name is synonymous with superior smoked meats. In 1933 — armed with his immigrant family’s timeless recipe and an entrepreneurial spirit — R.C. Nueske packed a truck full of flavor and toured northern Wisconsin, selling his premium meats and putting the Nueske name on the map. Throughout December the family’s famous bacon will be featured in select dishes at our signature restaurants

Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats

For more than 80 years, the Nueske family has been one of the region’s premier producers of smoked meats. In addition to their signature bacon, Nueske’s prepares premium hams, poultry, cheeses and desserts, among other specialties. A long-time local favorite, the Nueske name is now recognized even outside of Wisconsin, though they humbly maintain their homegrown traditions.
