Who are we? We are a chef-driven smoke shop that specializes in pork, specifically BACON! We source our product from one heritage breed, from a vertical farm. Working with farmers gives us the best, most consistent product to share with you, our guests. We only source all-natural products and never ever use sodium nitrate in our products. We do small batch smoking to ensure the highest quality end-product for you. Our rubs make your food taste incredible. We travel around to source the most flavorful spices which form the backbone of our original seasoning combinations. We also use, when special ordered (or we think it will go well), some incredible custom marinades which use some of the best adult beverages available.
We would never want to forget about our guests who wish to have the great taste of smoke, but do not eat meat. So we have developed a comprehensive line of vegetarian products (none of which are called bacon) to give our meatless friends the taste that every human seems to crave. Yup that is correct, you read that, we want the meatatarians and vegetarians to have their one-stop-shop. Everyone can have a little smoke and a smile. Whenever possible, we use farm to table produce and sustainable meat alternatives; then add the perfect touch of smoke to give you that unique taste you have been craving.
We aren't about just about saying the words "sustainably sourced," we are about sustainability in all we do. That means giving back to the community, supporting the farmers, and ensuring the care of the land. We are about the long-lost, artisan ways of doing things: the way we used to do things. Well, we are about those things today. We do not believe in using synthetic chemicals to speed our curing process up; we believe great bacon takes care and time. We care about the details, from long before the butchering of the animals. We take our time and give our utmost care to ensure you will have an experience for your taste buds that will blow everything else away.
We are the Bacon Cartel, welcome to our world.
