Today Glenn shared grilled boneless pork loins with a seasoning blend of Glenn’s own design. Caribbean Heat Seasoning. With a blend of Turmeric, Curry Powder, Cumin and Coriander; this is a very tasty rub or sprinkling seasoning to apply to pork, beef or chicken. There really isn’t any “heat” to this blend, just a savory combination that makes the meat come alive.

Glenn Adds Extra Somethin’ to His Sausage!

Published by Rilee Waller on June 25th, 2014

The one good thing about Smokehouse Glenn’s amazing meat store, beside the fact that he carries the BEST in beef, pork, chicken or seafood is that he has products that cover all meals of the day – breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Today, Glenn reached into his breakfast goodie bag and pulled out several batches of his home made breakfast sausage and added two different yet flavorful balsamic vinegars. Like all his home made sausages, Glenn starts with the leanest cuts of pork shoulder, his seasoning recipe perfected of the years and ground to just the texture. In addition to an already great tasting product, Glenn decided to add a flavored balsamic vinegar to each of his two batches of sausage – Honey Ginger and Black Cherry vinegars. Each batch had its own marinade of flavored vinegar over night then skillet cooked in the morning. These vinegars explode with flavor and each saturate the sausages with their distinct flavor.

Pancakes With Fruit Flavored Vinegar?!?!??!!?!?

Published by Rilee Waller on April 9th, 2014

In the world of food and creating new taste sensations, one can’t be afraid to step out of the box. Smokehouse Glenn definitely did that today by introducing several fruit flavored balsamic vinegars to be used as toppings for – pancakes!

Toppings for Pancakes

Toppings for Pancakes

I am usually a traditional maple syrup and butter type of pancake eater. Glenn brought in three varieties of his fruit flavored balsamic vinegars – Maple, Blueberry and Strawberry. This morning when Glenn mixed up his pancake batter, he started off a new flavor twist by added some Butter flavored Olive Oil to the batter. The flavor infused extra virgin olive oils are intense. The pancakes alone contained a butter flavor that could be distinctively tasted just by sampling the cakes by themselves.

Pancakes with Blueberry Vinegar

Now comes the moment when I have to step outside the box to see how pancakes would taste with vinegar as a topping. Strawberry was the first choice since that is one of my favorite fruits. The strawberry flavor was prevalent in the taste but it contained a bit too much acidic overture of my taste buds. Blueberry was next in line and I found that this flavor was highly concentrated with a delicious blueberry flavor with hardly any acidic aftertaste. Lastly was sampling the maple flavor; containing a hearty maple taste and also very little acidic aftertaste for the taste buds to deal with. All in all, I would say – Yes, it is palatable to eat pancakes with a fruit flavored balsamic vinegar successfully. One would have to pre-sample the particular flavor to use to gauge with particular flavor contained the least acidic taste that would be easy on the palate.

This week is the opening of Smokehouse Glenn’s new website, Upper Peninsula Olive Oils And Vinegars!

Oils & Vinegars Add Bold Flavor to Chicken

Published by Rilee Waller on March 13th, 2014

 This morning, Smokehouse Glenn brought in two varieties of his in-store chicken breasts with two different seasoning combinations! First, I sampled chicken breasts that were cooked in a combination of Serrano Honey flavored vinegar, Jalapeno vinegar and Cilantro & roasted Onion flavored olive oil. The other pan of chicken breasts were cooked in a blend of Cilantro & Roasted Onion flavored olive oil and Serrano Honey flavored vinegar! I am still amazed how each of these olive oils and vinegars capture such a distinct, robust flavor of their particular taste. Your favorite recipe will magnify its flavors ten fold with the use of Glenn’s new product line!!! You need to taste these flavors for yourself to appreciate their bold accent they ad to your meal.

Now that he had added his selection of 38 flavored infused extra virgin olive oils and flavored balsamic vinegars, your favorite recipes will taste even better when you add his products into the mix.Seasoned Beef w_oils

This morning, Glenn brought in a premium cut of sirloin steak that was marinaded in a blended combination of three oils – Cilantro & Roasted Onion, Jalapeno and Oregano flavored olive oils. Glenn initially said that he thought he want a little overboard with the flavoring but I didn’t think so. The beef captured all of the three oils’ flavors; most prominent were the cilantro, mild heat from the jalapeno and oregano. I make it a point to taste the oils individually before sampling Glenn’s final item and everyone of his olive oils are saturated with the distinct flavor each oil is infused with. Glenn is carrying a top grade of olive oil that will enhance every recipe they are use in. My favorite is the Harissa flavored oil!

Several of Glenn’s lady customers suggested that he try a Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar on top of ice cream. What – vinegar on ice cream! Come on, most of us are Hershey’s Chocolate lovers; don’t ruin my dish of smooth, creamy goodness! Ah, but wait…sometimes you have to step outside the box and let your taste buds explore a little! OK, so Glenn topped french vanilla ice cream with a drizzle of his Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar. I dipped my spoon into my cup, little taste, another little taste, another taste – hey, these flavors taste good together! Sweet ice cream meets tangy balsamic vinegar with a hint of chocolate flavor in a delicious way!

WOW, what other flavors would work well on ice cream? Well, Glenn also has Strawberry flavored, Raspberry flavored balsamic vinegar AND Carra-Carra Orange Vanilla balsamic vinegar.

Northern Meat’s Potato Sausage Is NOT What You Think!

Published by Rilee Waller on November 20th, 2013

Smokehouse Glenn knocked it out of the park previously by making his own recipe of potato sausage BUT…today’s recipe is different! Glenn didn’t have at his disposal the assortment of olive oils and vinegars to work with like he does now. Today, Glenn added lemon flavored olive oil and red apple balsamic vinegar to his recipe and the outcome tasted delicious.

Tasty sausage with beef & pork!

For those of you who would think potato sausage is just mushed potato in a casing, ah, NO – it’s more than that! Glenn’s recipe contains potato, beef, pork, onion and his own seasonings. Whisking a mixture of the oil and vinegar, poured it over the sausage and let it set in the frig overnight. Next day, placed the sausage in a baking pan, added a ¼ cup of water to the pan and placed it in the oven at 350 to cook for an hour. Delicious!
