Omaha Bacon Club Member Page
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:
- The end of each month, come and pick-up your bacon at our retail shop in Ft. Calhoun, in Omaha at our house, or in Lincoln .
- 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.
Info / Notes
Dublin Gammon Bacon
Last month I was reading an agricultural and industrial government report from Ireland in 1902. Sounds riveting, huh? Well, there was a whole chapter on the bacon curing industry. The chapter mentioned Dublin bacon and the research began.
It is a lean bacon that is not very common anymore. Not even in Ireland. It is in the family of bacons called gammon bacon, with "gammon" meaning back leg aka ham. The back leg is de-boned before being rolled up, tied and cured for 2 weeks. We cold-smoked ours over cherry and oak.
The gammon bacon is not fully cooked, so you will need fry or gill or bake it. It is very lean and closer to thin ham steaks than fattier belly or shoulder bacons.
