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 the Gifford Park Farmer's Market, or in Lincoln.
- Check this page for exact dates and times and locations of pick-ups each month.
- Add-Ons are available, but the best and fullest selection is at the shop in Ft. Calhoun and at the Gifford Park Farmer's Market.
- 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.
Burnt Bacon Ends
(à la brisket burnt ends)
I have had a lot of people coming into the shop this summer looking for fresh pork belly to make Bacon Burn Ends. I finally tried some myself and they are rather fine. Most people use belly and just call it bacon. We are starting with slabs of our regular Duroc country bacon.
The slab bacon is then cut into large cubes, coated with a simple rub of garlic powder, mustard powder, Chinese 5-spice, cayenne and brown sugar. A few dabs of butter complete the loveliness. The rubbed bacon cubes are then hot smoked in a tray for until tender on the inside and a little crispy on the outside.
Makes a great sandwich or taco or whatever heart desires.
T-shirts will be available for new members and anyone who is still shirtless. If your size isn't available, I will order it soon and have it for a future Pick-Up.
