I'm tempted to try this, but after ordering Nueskes applewood smoked bacon, I'm a bit leery of heavily smoked bacon. The Nueskes was awesome top notch bacon the first few times I had it, then the overwhelming smoke started to get less appealing, even to the point that the kids didn't want it anymore. Maybe it was the applewood that didn't sit well, we're a hickory smoke bunch around here.
I might have to pass then. When I cooked the Nueskes, the house smelled of smoke for days, I think that's what killed the flavor of it. You smelled it every time you came in the house for days after cooking some, then when you cooked it again, it got less and less appealing. Maybe I should have moved the cast iron pan to the outdoor grill, because that first batch was the best bacon I remember eating.If you don't care for a very, very smokey meat you probably won't like Benton's bacon. My kids didn't like it because of the smoke and the salt.
