Bacon It Rain!

It’s impossible to go wrong with bacon, but only true students of the curing craft know just how right bacon can be. After pounds and pounds of delicious experimentation, we’ve divined the optimal seasoning and sizzling conditions for frying up prime time swine.

The Baconology Project Kit is spreading charcuterie skills to the masses and filling houses round the world with the savory smell of self-actualization.

Curing Your Bacon Blues

When it comes to amazin’ bacon, the power is in the powder. We’ve tinkered and toiled with countless rubs and curing salts to optimize the ideal recipe. Any pork belly caressed with these sweet and savory swine refiners will be flavor heavy and fry ready in no time.

Where There’s Smoke, There’s Bacon

Bacon isn’t bacon without the soft, lingering embrace from the smoke of an aromatic American hardwood. We’re sending Cameron’s Smoker Bag, which is basically an expensive, complex smoker in bag form, and a dial thermometer to keep the bacon from burning.

The Baconology Project Kit is a masterclass for savory slices of bacon season in triumph and sizzled to perfection.

      Best Gift!

      My fiance and I decided to buy this for his brother last Christmas. He absolutely loved it! It came on time, and was amazing! Thankfully they don't ship the meat with the package, so we didn't have to worry about the product spoiling. He was able to buy the bacon at his convenience. He gave us some of the bacon he made and it was delicious! Will definitely be using Man Crates for other gifts!

      So I'm kind of a selfish fiancee. I got this so he would make me bacon. He's looking forward to using it, though he hasn't yet. He does love getting the crates though, especially tearing it open with a crowbar!

      Bacon is Always the Answer

      This was the perfect gift for my bacon-loving, meat-smoking boss! We're already planning a party to help him eat the bacon (not that he needs any help). When I realized we had a staff meeting the day before it was supposed to arrive, Man Crates was prompt and accommodating when I asked to move the shipping date earlier so we could all watch him attempt to tear through the diabolical duct tape we had opted for.

      This was a gift to the MD I work with in celebration of 5 years since we opened the Modified Atkins Diet (MAD)clinic. Wow did she enjoy working with the meat and preparing it. (I did read the "fine print" that once she received the package there was a process to get the actual meat delivered.)We had a 5 year MAD party with our patients and family members coming. The bacon was a HUGE hit and 4 pounds of bacon gone in 5 minutes. Excellent gift idea.

      Got this for my dad for Father's Day. I thought it'd be fitting since he just got a new smoker. So far so good! He hasn't tested out anything yet, which is why I only gave it 4 stars, but he loves it. I was concerned about the meat, I don't feel that that part was made abundantly clear. But he received a voucher to get the meat so its freshness is guaranteed. There was some confusion with the shipping. My parents have a post office box, not a mailbox. So I shipped it to the post office. A few days later the box has arrived but can't be delivered because they needed a street address, not a PO box. Would have been good information to know when I was filling out the forms, but it wasn't a big deal to fix.
