Nueske's bacon at The Meat House Cary

I just found that The Meat House in Cary (Kildaire Farm Road) carries Nueske's bacon. Since THM is a franchise, other locations may or may not carry the same items.

Nueske's is a limited distribution upscale slab bacon. The butcher will slice it to your preferred thickness and weight. The Cary location had applewood and cherrywood smoked varieties. I know Nueske's also makes a peppered that wasn't represented at the store when I went in.

I had read about Nueske's on various internet sites as a much-loved treat for bacon afficionados. So I gulped hard and ponied up the $10.99/pound (WHAT??!?) for the cherrywood variety. My impressions were quite favorable. It's a very lean bacon with a ton of flavor. I thought the cherrywood was just a touch sweet for my taste, but it still left a very pleasant mouth taste. And the aroma filling the house was delightful.

This is quite a different experience than the $3.50/pound grocery store specials. If you are a baconholic you might want to try it as a special treat.
