Applewood smoked bacon or just great smoked bacon?

I need some for a dinner party, to go with a pork tenderloin recipe. Any ideas who has a great one? I've tried the usual groceries, Wegman's and Trader Joes. Someone suggested Shady Maple in Lancaster.
Any thoughts?
I live in West Chester, for what its worth:)

  1. I get great double smoked bacon at the Fair Food Farmstand in the Reading Terminal Market. It comes from Green Meadow Farm in Gap PA - might be able to find it elsewhere

    1. If you're up for a drive, go to Illg's in Warrington. You'll find a traditional, high quality German butcher that has great wurst in addition to terrific bacon.

      1. Check with an associate at Trader Joe's. They do sell a apple wood smoked bacon, they just do not always have it.

        1. Green Aisle Grocery sells the to die for bacon that Marshall cures and smokes at Cafe Estelle.

          1. Thanks to all of you! I will have gained 10 pounds trying out the bacon - but it will be worth it:)
