It's official, Maplewood Meats has the best bacon in the state, at least if you believe the Wisconsin Association of Meat Processors.
The WAMP convention held last weekend in Madison featured a trade show with 61 plants entering 1,053 products for testing, which was just shy of a record from the year before.
Maplewood Meats also took the top spot in the Specialty Meat Entree with its reuben pizza on fire grilled crust and earned Reserve Grand Champion for both the traditional and specialty bratwurst (cheddar) categories among many other top 5 recoginitions and earned the WAMP Product Show Award of Excellence in Manufacture Award.
The shop is located at 4663 Milltown Rd., Howard with store hours Monday through Saturday. www.maplewoodmeats.com
