The harmonious balance of pure pork flavor, moderate salt and modest smoke in a bite of Bill-E’s Small Batch Bacon will make your taste buds dance. And that makes sense; music is a key note in its composition since, as William “Bill” Ernest Stitt, founder and head bacon-maker at Bill-E’s, often says, his bacon is “serenaded by singers and songwriters.”

This is just one of several branding lines Stitt calls “Bill E-isms,” and it’s true. The tiny cure room, smokehouse and packaging center where Bill-E’s Small Batch Bacon is created in Fairhope is directly behind the stage of Stitt’s other venture, his roadhouse-style restaurant, Old 27 Grill, where live music is playing again now that the COVID-19 shutdown has lifted. (While the restaurant is back open, full table service has been suspended in favor of counter service, and social distancing is practiced by staff and encouraged for patrons.)
