FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHERE ARE YOUR PRODUCTS MADE?
We produce everything in the heart of Denver, CO. And we're the ONLY USDA Certified bacon producer in the state of Colorado.
HOW SHOULD I COOK YOUR SAUSAGES?
Our sausages are fully cooked, just heat and serve! We prefer to throw them on the grill, or sauté them on the range.
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO COOK YOUR BACON?
Frying it in a pan is always great, but if you are cooking for a crowd, we recommend laying it flat on a sheet tray and roasting it in the oven at 350 degrees. Cook it to your preferred doneness, then drain on paper towels.
CAN I FREEZE YOUR STUFF?
Yes! All of our products can be frozen before their expiration date. Use within 12 months for best results.
WHY DOES RIVER BEAR MEATS TASTE SO GOOD?
Well, that's a long list. But here's a few reasons. All of our sausage and bacon products are made with 100% Berkshire Pork, a heritage breed pig that has higher meat quality than conventionally raised pigs. Better pork equals better sausages.
We use 100% real wood to smoke everything (no liquid smoke or artificial flavorings. The wood blend we use is a mix of Colorado peachwood, and Texas pecan wood.
We dry cure everything. Dry curing pulls out water to make the pork flavor go up. Unlike some other guys out there, we don't pump our products full of water to make it weigh more.
Our turkey is antibiotic free and free range.
We use Angus Beef for our pastrami, corned beef and roast beef. Angus beef has a lot of marbling and provides better flavor.
