Why locals love it

If you dine at enough Front Range restaurants, you're bound to it encounter pork chops, pork shoulder, sausage or bacon from Tender Belly. Luckily, if you really want to bring your personal BBQ up to Michelin standards, Tender Belly also sells their incredible meat directly to consumers and through select regional grocers.

Why you should visit it

This is a true family operation; unconfined Berkshire pigs are cared for by the Duffy brothers, who chose to adopt their late grandfather's profession after falling on rough times. The recipe for their outstanding bacon is pure and simple: three kinds of sugar, 11 spices, salt, cherrywood smoke and 16 days curing time, no added junk or extra water.

Special tip

Orders can be made via the website, where you'll also find a list of retailers. They sell every other part of the pig in addition to the prized bacon.
