It's not every day that a self-proclaimed "hillbilly" from Monroe County makes the cover of the University of Tennessee's alumni magazine, The Torchbearer. But then again, it's not every day you run across a businessman quite like Allan Benton. He owns Benton's Bacon and makes a bacon so unique, Esquire magazine called it the best bacon in the world.Also my hometown!!
