Unable to find bacon that met his high standards for freshness and ingredients, Chef Tony Baker founded his own brand in 2011. Baker’s Bacon began with a partnership between long time smoke master and bacon expert Steve Sacks at Prime Smoked Meats in Oakland, California.
Baker and Sacks worked together for over a year experimenting with cures until they settled on the recipe that is still in use today.
The goal was and is to make real bacon – Bacon The Way It’s Supposed To Be!
Baker’s Bacon is made in two styles, offered in whole slab or sliced:
- British-style uncured back bacon — this premium bacon is leaner than traditional American bacon, meatier and 100% natural.
- Double-smoked bacon — made in the more traditional American style and dry-cured with a unique blend of spices, then smoked for twice as long with both applewood and maple wood chips, giving the pork a rich color and deep bacon flavor.
- Subscription Boxes: frequency options are 1, 2, 3, 4, or 6 months and include eight packages of bacon (five packages of Thick-Sliced Double Smoked Bacon, two packages of Thick-Sliced Uncured Back Bacon, and a surprise cut that will change with each box) and a chef-created recipe. Each box is $95 and includes free shipping to California, Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, and Arizona only.
- Gift Sets: for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or any occasion, the gift sets include three packages of bacon (two Thick Sliced Double Smoked Bacon and one Thick-Sliced Uncured Back Bacon), a Baker’s Bacon lanyard, and a customizable gift message with clever bacon greetings. Each gift set is $42 plus shipping and is available to ship anywhere in the U.S.
Baker’s Bacon uses sensible and sustainable product packaging, no styrofoam, with recyclable cardboard boxes and reusable gel cold packs.
