Love the kit

1/4/2014 by Sharon

My husband was pleasantly surprised with this kit. We are smoking the bacon today - can't wait! Delivery was fast, instructions answered alled all but one question (smoke skin side up or down?) But led us to make our own investigations.
Love searching the Grommet for unusual and likeable gifts!!

My husband and I gave these kits to two different people this year for Christmas and both recipients were delighted with them


Wonderful kit and bacon

11/21/2013 by Tabitha

I bought this for my fiance's birthday...he loved it! The kit was easy to follow and put together (to get pork bellies, go to Whole Foods or your nearest butcher shop...most grocery stores don't carry pork bellies. I found out the hard way). We just cooked some of the bacon today....it was flavorful and just crispy enough. Not too sweet or salty which we both loved. We may get this again to have a fun project for us to do again. The quality of the kit and the instructions were easy to follow and the kit provided everything you need to make bacon (except the pork bellies of course). Absolutely a great buy for the bacon fan!More > < Less


A fun project

8/21/2018 by Marc

At no point in the process did my bacon look anything like the photo here. Not a complaint, just a point. My bacon came out very flavorful, but I find it VERY tough to both slice and chew. I wonder if I did something to cause that? I cooked an identical pork belly, uncured, the previous month, and it came out very easy to slice. It cooked for 6 hours - this bacon only for three. Could that be the difference? It would be interesting to find out, so I'll have to try another one to find out. Also, since I don't have a smoker, I miss the smokiness. Any suggestions?More > < Less


Our bacon turned out great!

The Bacon Kit turned out great- although I didn't think it was a great value. Creative packaging, but I do feel it was overpriced. Directions are direct and easy to follow, package contained everything but the meat. End result was delicious bacon.More > < Less

About The Original Baconkit

Home Cured

Some things are best left to the pros. It turns out that bacon isn’t one of them. With The Original baconkit, curing your own bacon is easy, fun, and absolutely delicious.

What began as a hobby for Russ Morgan and Todd Heckel became a business when their friends kept begging for more homemade bacon. In 2012, they turned their passion for pork bellies into a company called 7th West Charcuterie and The Original baconkit was born. It contains everything you need to make 5 lbs. of tasty homemade bacon except the pork belly itself (easy to find at your local supermarket or butcher shop).

Smoke it in a smoker or over a grill. Or just prepare it in the oven if you prefer. Keep it classic or add the included maple sugar for a touch of sweetness. Unlike commercial brands, home cured bacon won’t shrivel, shrink, or release water during cooking. The Original baconkit is Made in the USA and includes simple step-by-step instructions for those who love to cook and even those who think they can’t.
