Bought this for my son as a gift - we just had the first of it tonight! Very easy to use. We don’t have a smoker, so we used the oven instructions and it was still great!

I bought this for my husband as a Christmas gift. He loves bacon and I thought he would get a kick out of it. He cured it, smoked it, sliced it thin and then we packaged it up a few slices here and there and froze them so we could pull out bacon as needed! It was really good. He's asked if I could get it again so we could make some more bacon. I just might have too!


Excellent gift

I gifted this to my husband last Christmas and it was so easy to use and we've never had better bacon! I'll order this again!

This was a great gift and I loved receiving it. Actually making your own bacon was fun. This is a great gift for anyone, who eats bacon and loves making things. Great for a chef in [email protected]!


Fantastic bacon!!!

Received the kit and started curing a five pound slab of pork belly right away. A week later, two hours in my smoker and I had the best tasting bacon that my wife and I have ever had. I don't know what it would taste like if you dry it in the oven, but with the smoker it is great.

I bought two more kits to get going on my next batch.

For those of you that are wondering, once it's done curing and smoking a five pound pork belly ends up being about four pounds of bacon.

The Original Baconkit Story

The Original baconkit - DIY bacon curing

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 pounds 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. Read More Read Less
