Nowadays, the word Nueske’s means one thing: bacon. At least, that’s the way it seems around Wisconsin. Sure, the family company sells more than bacon, a lot more. But if you mention the name, a lot of people will think you’re talking about what could be Nueske’s most popular product.
It took a lot of years of hard work and dedication to get to this point. The Nueske family started selling smoked meats a long time ago, back during the Depression. R.C. Nueske would load up the back of his automobile with his freshly smoked hams, sausages and bacon and travel through Wisconsin’s north woods, stopping at the many resorts in the area to folk samples.
Although money was tight, people knew a good thing when they tasted it and word of Nueske’s products traveled far and fast. The Nueske family’s Old World smoking methods set their products apart from so many others.
Each cut of meat is carefully selected and hand-trimmed before being slowly smoked over glowing embers of genuine Wisconsin applewood logs in Nueske’s smokehouse. They never use liquid smoke or smoke generators, only natural applewood smoke (or cherrywood smoke, as the case may be).
The Nueske family still runs the business and they’re still located in Wittenberg, where it all began. You’ll find Nueske’s delicious cherrywood smoked bacon at your favorite Outpost.
