Where can I find Nueske's Bacon?

Are there stores that carry Nueske's Applewood Smoked Bacon in Dallas? Other boutique bacons? Suggestions? I need the instant gratification of store-bought bacon rather than online-bought.

  1. Central Market (Dallas) for sure. However, you'll be lucky if you can find a package with a decent meat to fat ratio. Unless of course you prefer your bacon mostly fat. Look through all the packages in the case. Maybe you'll get lucky.

      Really? Every packet of Nueske's that I've purchased online has always been much leaner than regular supermarket bacon.

        I'm just relaying the experience I've had with Nueske's bacon at CM. It's worth a try, for sure. Just go thru all the packages to find the one that's "just right" for you.
        I do that with any bacon I buy.

        Also worth noting at CM - they have whole slabs in the deli counter that you can get sliced to your desired thickness. I usually do this because I prefer a thicker bacon.

        1. Try Kuby's in Snyder Plaza for specialty bacon

          1. 2nd twinwillow. Just bought a package of the Nueske's $8.99 bacon at the CM on Lover's in Dallas. Middle,bottom of the packaged meat products over in the Meat section, not at the deli. I did not see it at the Plano store last time I was there. I looked for it at Whole Foods Coit and Preston/Forest this past holiday season and know for sure they don't carry it. Although, they had some wonderful Neiman Ranch applewood smoked ham slices about a 1/2" thick. Made great quiche! :)

            1. i sympathize with the bacon jonesing...
              but if order online from nueske's u get a lot more bacon for your money
              the packaged ones we have in our local stores are a lot smaller typically not even half a pound...and usually 8-10 bucks...

              but u order online u can get at least 2 pounds for only 20$ and with coupon codes for a free pound of bacon with any order
              or any of the other coupons/codes they have...

              u can get a better deal...
              im on their email list..they send me stuff all the time...
