Pork Chops and Home-Made Slaw Hit the Spot!

Published by Rilee Waller on February 19th, 2014

Smokehouse Glenn continues to demonstrate the numerous cooking condiments he stocks in his store that provide his customers with unending recipe variations.

Today, Glenn made a marinade for the boneless pork chops he cooked this morning. The marinade recipe consisted of Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar, Chipotle Olive Oil, Sea Salt and sugar. The boneless pork chops were marinaded overnight in the marinade mixture then simply pan fried. The marinade almost turned into a glaze that coated the pork with a deliciously sweet flavor; having an ever so slight twang from the chipotle olive oil.

The home-made cole slaw was flavored with a dressing mixture consisting of Cilantro & Roasted Onion Olive Oil, Serrano Honey Specialty Vinegar, sugar, Sea Salt and mayo. I have never tasted a better flavored slaw dressing; don’t be fooled by the Serrano in the vinegar! The honey made a great off-set to the pepper flavoring and the taste was sensationally sweet! This is a great change from the routine flavoring the conventional recipe tastes like!

Chairman’s Reserve Pork Chops

Published by Rilee Waller on January 30th, 2013

Smokehouse Glenn’s featured item from Northern Meats this morning was pork chops from Chairman’s Reserve. You should be familiar with the name Chairman’s Reserve by now from all the quality beef products Glenn has featured from past entries. Today I had the chance to taste pork loins from Chairman’s Reserve.

Glenn being know as the “custom cut butcher”, he only sells quality products to his customers and Glenn has learned from his 30 + years in the meat business that Chairman’s Reserve is a quality product. Buying bone-in pork loins from Chairman, Glenn has the option to sell quality pork chops with the bone or he will remove the bone on request for his customers.


These chops are lean and firm; the muscle texture is solid quality. Some whole cuts of pork can have a certain percentage of solution added to the meat; which may be noted on the packaging but this is never the case when purchasing Chairman’s Reserve. Add to these chops Sweet & Sassy or Wild Game seasoning from Spicy Jo’s and you have a great tasting meal baked, grilled or pan fried.

Saturday, January 26th, Glenn held a “Sampler Saturday” at Northern Meats that allowed customers to come in and taste a variety of products available in his store. The day was a success with customers walking in and sampling then buying products from Northern Meats. Some Saturday in February, Glenn will hold another “Sampler Saturday”; this time, the theme will be “Bacon, Bacon,Bacon” with everything bacon including Spicy Jo’s bacon flavorings!Northern Meats tasty goodiesNorthern Meats
