I love a brand with a good story! Back in 1927, meat was naturally aged and hand-rubbed in a small family smokehouse in the heart of the Missouri Ozarks. Most people didn’t have fridges then, but they needed to eat, so food needed to be preserved! E.M. Burger (great name!) learned the craft of curing meat from his mother, Hulda. She brought over a family recipe from Germany in the late 1800s, and he used it to rub country hams in a dry-cure mixture during the winter. And then aged them for 9-12 months. And despite the fact that this company now cures more than a half million country hams a year, and produces a variety of authentic cured and smoked meat and poultry products, they still use Grandma Hulda’s method of hand-preparing and slow-curing meat today!
Burgers’ Smokehouse Review and Giveaway:
Burgers’ Smokehouse is still family-owned, of course, and now also makes a variety of proteins, cheeses, and desserts. For example, they make Country Ham, which is aged over 90 days for a bold flavor, is brown sugar cured with the original recipe, and is available ready to cook – or fully cooked. You can enjoy in bone-in and boneless cuts! Here is the product list:
• Country Ham – Original + Attic Aged (aged 4-7 months or longer)
• Brine Cured & Hickory Smoked “City” Hams
• Dry Cured Bacon – Five Flavors (including Uncured Bacon)
• Dry Cured Pork Jowl
• BBQ Line – Pulled Pork, Beef Brisket, Pork Ribs and more
• Summer Sausage – Logs and Snack Sticks
• Ready to Heat – Beans N Ham products (three flavors)
• Pizza Toppings
Now of course, I had the Sauced Baby Back Pork Ribs. They arrive fully cooked and sauced and there are four easy ways to heat them: microwave, grill, oven, slow cooker, etc. They are SO full of flavor. It’s such a great meal hack when you want to eat a deluxe meal, but without having to cook one. We love ours with vegetables and potatoes.
