Glenn Adds Two Tasty Items to His Store

Published by Rilee Waller on January 21st, 2015

Smokehouse Glenn has many items in his store that he makes himself – a variety of snack sticks, summer sausages, brats and jerkys. However, sometime Glenn can’t have all the equipment necessary to produce every product.

Stoneridge's Otto

This week, Glenn found two products from Stoneridge Meat & Country Market of Wauoma, WI. Where Glenn found Bloody Mary flavored Snack Sticks and Pit Smoked Onion & Garlic Summer Sausage. Pit smoking is an old style process where the smoke is generated from a pit located beneath the meat product being processed; usually smoked for a lengthier time. Great choices, Glenn – both items are flavorful and delicious!

Test Kitchen Item is 100% Good!

Published by Rilee Waller on September 19th, 2013

 Smokehouse Glenn always loves the challenge of taking on a new product suggestion from his customers. Sometimes, he just likes to challenge himself to see if he can make something tasty that he’s never made before. Such is the case with today’s 100% Beef Sticks.

1005 Beef Sticks bits

Already available at Northern Meats are a wide variety of snack sticks that are a pork based meat product – but what about using beef? Glenn choose to use a regular lightly seasoned spice recipe in theses sticks to avoid any excessive saltiness or extreme flavoring. Using 100% beef for this recipe yielded a denser texture to this product. The mild flavor is present in theses sticks, no excessive oiliness or mushy texture like several mass produced commercial meat products. I would give this a thumbs up for purchasing to satisfy my snacking needs.

Northern Meats will also process any wild game customers may have bagged during their hunting season. Call 485-4220 or stop in with your game and let Smokehouse Glenn know how you would like your game processed – you’ll be glad you did!

Stop in and select from all the beef, pork, chicken or seafood items available at Northern Meats located in the Country Village, Ishpeming. Store hours are M – Sat 10 to 6; Sundays 10 to 4.

Mesquite Makes This Snack Stick Flavorful!

Published by Rilee Waller on August 28th, 2013

Just like the extensive list of brat flavors Smokehouse Glenn has produced for his customers, so too is the list of different flavors his snack sticks are made. Today, Glenn is featuring a Mesquite flavored Snack Stick for sampling.

Lately, many customers have been bringing in their quantities of venison to the store and asking Glenn to make the meat into some flavored product and often it takes on the form of snack sticks. Mesquite has a different taste compared to hickory, maple or cherry. Glenn offers theses sticks in either beef or pork based product or he can make a blended mix using venison.

This particular batch is a combination of beef and pork with mesquite flavoring and they are outstanding. Most mass produced beef stick products can be greasy, excessive oils oozing from them and also left in the package itself. Northern Meats doesn’t push the packaging and shelf-life limits by adding excessive salt or fat content to their products; these are great tasting products which don’t stay around long enough to exhaust their shelf life!

For your upcoming Labor Day weekend, stop in to Northern Meats and ask Smokehouse Glenn to slice you up some delicious steaks for your grill or pick up some of his marinaded chicken breasts which come in a variety of flavors – BRATS are plentiful for grillin’!

Northern Meats will be open Labor Day, 10 to 4 but don’t wait the last minute to purchase premium quality meat products from our custom-cut butcher, Smokehouse Glenn! Northern Meats is opened Monday – Saturday 10 to 6, Sunday 10 to 4.

Dearborn Old Style Wieners & Spicy Snack Sticks

Published by Rilee Waller on October 24th, 2012

Smokehouse Glenn brought in a product from his long time business from the past; Dearborn Sausage. This tasty item is Dearborn’s Old Style Wiener; which is a combination between a knackwurst and a hot dog but distinct unto itself in taste and texture. This wiener has a good smoked flavor with the beef and pork having a courser grind to its consistency, and something else that is prominent to this product, which I feel adds to its overall great body of taste. This wiener is made with a natural casing, wa-a-a-a-y better that synthetic casing – natural casing delivers a distinct “Snap” when you bite into this wiener and that enhances the entire eating experience!!!Smokehouse Glenn's top notch product line


Starting with a beef and pork blend, this variety of “dog” or wiener is plumper that a traditional hot dog, combined with a delicious smoked flavor, this wiener leans more towards a sausage flavor than a traditional hot dog flavor. Glenn has noticed over the years with hot dog production, most companies have drastically changed their product recipe to a more bland, undistinguished taste that your flavor is being derived from your condiments; but not with Dearborn products!! As one true food connoisseur stated, “live is too short to eat a cheap tasting hot dog!!!”

Smokehouse Glenn's First Choice in Great Taste

Smokehouse Glenn’s other product “from the test kitchen” is a modified recipe of his mild snack stick. Glenn decided to add a little more zing to this recipe and came up with something that is very delicious!!! A little more cayenne and black pepper moved it up a notch on the flavor scale. This is truly a lively taste sensation of flavor that Glenn has developed and is available for you to purchase from Northern Meats. Located in the Country Plaza, Ishpeming, Michigan; stop in and tell Smokehouse Glenn that you heard about these products from his website and you would like to try a sample – you won’t be disappointed!!!
