Nueskies? Bacon The Great Hall: Nueskies? Bacon

Has anyone used nueskies (spelling) bacon before? My owner wants me to use it but looking at past billings the stuff was costing about $800 a month. Is it worth it?

How much per pound on that bacon? I have never used that particular brand, but good smoked products are a pleasure to serve. Seems to me that above @ 3.00 per pound, and it starts to get prohibitively expensive. There are excellent small-maker pork products available for that price.
Around here there is a packing plant that buys and kills local small-farm raised hogs and make their own ham, sausage, and bacon. Their products are great, and don't cost that much more than the national brands. I like supporting a local business, too.

No its not worth it Hormel makes a quality apple smoked bacon thats good .You can also check with your suppliers they probably have some high end stuff thats just as good. Nueskies is good stuff but its not worth what thier charging.Your paying for hipe. Peace

We started out with hormel applewood smoked, which people loved, it got expensive and we tried 3 or 4 other varieties, but nothing came close, and we were really only saving a few pennies per serving. Plus, it took all the fun out of snitching a piece of bacon with my first cup of coffee in the morning! We went back to the Hormel.
