...and that’s saying something! I’m pretty fussy about bacon, and I’m even more fussy about the meat I eat. This was delicious. I cured it for 8 days, then smoked it on med-high smoke with apple wood, then sliced and fried it up! Delicious! I wish I could post some photos! I suppose it’s unlike any store-bought bacon because of the pork flavor, and that’s not a bad thing! The next time, I’ll try a different flavor profile in the curing mix. More to come!
My wife is Filipino and pork belly plays a big part in their cuisine. Being this was Berkshire, we wanted to let the pork flavor shine so we made lechon kawali, or deep fried pork belly. This was the best kawali thatI've ever had. Our friends asked what restaurant that we ordered it from and were surprised when I told them that we bought it online and made it ourselves. Fossil Farms has a myriad of different meat types. We've also ordered the elk and venison with amazing results. Prices and customer service are excellent as well. Can't go wrong with this company and their product.
There was an issue with my order but they communicated the whole way. That says a lot about their character and company culture. I will definitely order again.
This was my third or fourth time ordering from Fossil Farms. I am happy to say I will continue to keep ordering from them for all of my exotic and bulk meat supplies.
Fossil Farms has a great way of communicating with their customers. A order I made back in late June of this year was unfortunately delayed in transit and the meat all spoiled. I didn't even have to call them up to get the situation rectified because they call me first to apologize and inform me a new shipment was being dispatched immediately!
For this particular order that I am writing this review, they called me once again to inform me that they ran out of the smaller sized pork belly (3-5 lbs), but would happily upgrade me to the full 10 lb. pork belly for no additional charge. I then had a very informative discussion with the man with whom I was speaking and informed him I had attempted homemade bacon before and it did not turn out the way I had wished and he walked me through how he personally does it and I am happy to report that my second attempt at bacon was a huge success!
Thank you Fossil Farms, you guys are amazing and I will continue to be a customer of your for years to come!
