Santa Claus drove a van and wore a brown suit this year. Ms. Goofy knows I have a weakness for all pork products from Nueske's Meats from Wisconsin. They may make some of the best bacon in the nation. My Christmas stocking was filled with apple-wood smoked bacon and pork chops  It was time to enjoy this Christmas bounty.

We opened the vacuum packed package of chops and were greeted with a pleasant sweet apple-wood aroma. A quick searing in a skillet and orzo, spices and stock was added. A trip to the oven to finish and we were ready to feast. These chops were fantastic. The sweet cure transformed this meat to a ham like texture. The smoke was slight and intoxicating.  Nueske's pork products do not disappoint. Ms. Goofy know's what I like. Yummynoodles!!!!!

But no BGE this year? Oh, well, anything from Nueske is almost as good. We tried their corned beef hash this year.

Zoomie, Corned beef hash from Nueske's sounds intriguing and no BGE this year.

Looks great. I love a good smoked pork chop. I will have to look into their bacon for the World Bacon Championship this year.

Three Dogs BBQ, We have been looking for the 'Gold Standard' of bacon on a never ending quest. This comes very close. Good stuff.
