Omaha Bacon Club Member Page
July - Dec. 2018
Welcome to the Omaha Bacon Club.
Thank you for supporting a small local business and the local farmers we work with.
The club is pretty simple:
About once a month, we make a specialty bacon for the club members.
Over the course of your 6-month membership, you will get 6 lbs. of specialty bacons and 6 lbs. of our regular dry-cured country bacon (1 lb. of each per month).
You will get an email before each pick-up directing you to this page, where you can find the details of date/time etc.
Check this page for exact dates and times and locations of pick-ups each month.
If you can't make a month, just come by our retail shop or double-up the next month. You won't ever miss out on the bacon you have paid for. If extra bacon is not available, you can have $8 in credit per lb. of bacon to spend on anything at the shop.
If you have any questions, please TEXT Chad (instead of emailing or calling) @ 402-999-1075.
Black Crowe Bacon &
Since we are doubling up this last pick up, there are 2 specialty bacons.
First, is our house-bacon we developed by mashing up flavors and techniques of Suffolk Black Bacon and Black Forest Bacon. We named it after a once infamous and now almost-forgotten Omaha figure, Pat Crowe, aka The Outlaw Butcher of Omaha (download and read an extensive article here). The bacon is dry-cured with a seasoning of black pepper, coffee, garlic, molasses, spices and more. Bacon is heavily smoked included a few minutes over juniper wood.
The second “bacon” is actually a ham. It is a traditional Danish ham prepared for Christmas. We used Duroc pork and brined them for 2 weeks with salt, a touch of sugar and allspice. Rather than smoking, the hams are gently poached in a seasoned broth of water, white wine, allspice, bay leaves and onions. Ham is great just sliced and eaten cold or room temp. Can also be warmed up in the oven topped with a paste of brown mustard, bread crumbs and eggs. This is the traditional Christmas preparation.
