Smoked Neck 1

Smoked Necks (Capicola)

Our Smoked Necks are a Premium Dry Cured, whole muscle pork product. The pork neck, or “butt” is harvested from the shoulder of the pig, and is more commonly known as Capicola in Canada. This is one of our most popular products by volume, and notably, in both 2019 and 2022, they were a Silver Award Winner at the Ontario’s Finest Meat Competition. Cured “on the salt” for a little over 3 weeks, and then layered in maple hardwood cold-smoke for nearly 2 days, the product is then dried for approximately 6 weeks, until it achieves shelf stability after losing almost half its raw weight. The result demonstrates extremely concentrated flavour, a rich dark colour on the lean meat, and soft white fat marbling throughout. Enjoy sliced thin, either by itself as a snack, or in a sandwich, or as an impactful charcuterie or appetizer component. This is a versitile pork delicacy.

Smoked Back Fat

Smoked Back Fat

Our Smoked Back Fat is a Premium pork product that’s uncooked, and intended for use as an ingredient at home. Derived from Hand Selected, and Specially Trimmed Ontario Pork backs, this product is about an inch-and-a-quarter thick, with the skin still attached on one side. First it cures “on the salt” for a little over 3 weeks, and then is layered in maple hardwood cold-smoke, before spending a weekend in our drying room until the texture and moisture levels are just right. The final result is a richly flavoured, hard, and stark white fat primed for infusing concentrated flavours of pork fat, and wood-smoke into your dishes at home. Dice into small cubes for melting into soups and stews, or slice paper-thin to layer atop baked bruschetta or garlic bread.

Old Fashioned Ham (Cooked Ham)

Old Fashioned Ham

Our Old Fashioned Ham utilizes fresh Ontario hams, from a pair of our favourite local suppliers. The hams themselves are specially trimmed “to the red” in-house, and then injected with our proprietary brine recipe, which adds a perfect balance of salty and sweet to the overall flavour profile. Owing to the in-house trimming, the hams also knit together better when stuffed by hand, resulting in an extremely lean offering that can be sliced very thin; even shaved. We roast the Old Fashioned Hams slowly to help retain moisture, for a juicy Ready To Eat finished product that also boasts less sodium content than our Black Forest Ham variants. A perfect, lean sandwich meat best enjoyed with fresh bread, mustard, and your favourite cheese!

Lachsschinken

Lachsschinken

Our Lachsschinken is a Premium Dry Cured, whole muscle pork product. Derived from boneless, skinless pork loins, this product cures “on the salt” for a little over 3 weeks, while coated in our proprietary dry rub, and then is layered in maple hardwood cold-smoke for nearly 2 days. After that, it’s dried for approximately 6 weeks, until it ultimately achieves shelf stability after losing almost half its raw weight. Between the curing process, the drying process, and the absence of heat during smoking, the end result has extremely concentrated flavour, a rich, dark colour on the lean meat, and the ability to last for months without refrigeration. It is definitely the leanest of our our Dry Cured offerings. Enjoy sliced thin, either by itself as a snack, or in a sandwich, or as an impactful charcuterie or appetizer component. This is a versitile pork delicacy.

Kassler (Smoked Pork Chop)

Kassler Smoked Pork Chops

Our Kassler is a juicy, ready-to-eat, bone-in pork chop. Flavour-wise, it demonstrates a perfect harmony between premium pork loins, and a secret combination of salts and sugars which browns perfectly in your pan. The loins are Naturally Smoked, while roasting in our smokehouses, which imparts a rich golden colour on the surface of the product, as well as an aromatic and flavourful accent. This product is very easy to prepare in minutes; just heat and serve.

Black Forest Ham

Black Forest Ham

Our Black Forest Hams are specially trimmed “to the red” in-house, and then injected with our proprietary brine recipe, which adds a perfect balance of salty and sweet to the overall flavour profile. With these variants, to control input costs, we utilize more competitively priced raw materials, and additional automation during processing, and pass those savings on to our customers. These variants are similarly roasted slowly while being layered in natural hardwood smoke, and feature the same great taste as our Premium offering, for a lower price. A perfect, lean sandwich meat best enjoyed with fresh bread, mustard, and your favourite cheese!
