We love highlighting our favorite purveyors! Allan Benton's bacon is well known in this area and around the nation!
Dancing Bear Lodge and Restaurant's Chef Jeff Carter uses Benton’s Bacon in his dishes for the restaurant. Chef Carter said, “Allan's bacon is more smoky and salty so it really adds flavor to other foods it's cooked with.”
Benton’s Smoky Mountain Country Hams, led by owner Allan Benton, was established in 1947 in Madisonville, TN, by a dairy farmer and continues to uphold the traditional dry-curing process that its forefathers began so long ago. Yet, Allan Benton’s slow-cured hams and smoky bacon are anything but traditional in terms of flavor — and top chefs around the country seem to agree. They stand behind his products so much that they specify it by name on their menus.
Visit Benton’s Smoky Mountain County Hams to order your ham or bacon!
