Mild & Hot Italian sausage

Mild & Hot Italian sausage

From his thirty some years with Dearborn Sausage down state, Glenn has come to learn that when you’re making authentic Italian sausage, the recipe calls for either anise or fennel. Of course, there are hundreds of different Italian family recipes treasured dearly but Glenn shared his particular recipe which he uses cayenne and crushed red pepper in his “hot” Italian sausage AND he also made his mild Italian sausage. Don’t be put off by the word, “hot” – Glenn is very taste conscious when it comes to making his product. He creates with the intention of a flavor that will NOT drive you away from your food.

Troll Smokehouse relishes

Glenn’s added condiments to taste with these sausages are a Mild & Hot Pepper Relish from Troll Smokehouse, which are available from Smokehouse Glenn’s store. Actually these two items are sweet tasting and very delicious relishes that can be used on a variety of meat items.

Mesquite Chicken Patties with Salsa!

Published by Rilee Waller on July 24th, 2014

Smokehouse Glenn took our office by surprise with a new item none of us would have ever thought of trying as a taste test sample item – Mesquite Chicken Patties. In the past, the taste (or lack of) in a processed chicken patty is something I would like to stay away from. Glenn’s freshly made patties are a product you will purchase more than once.

Pre-cooked home made chicken patties

Starting off with ground white meat of chicken (and some dark mixed in) added to that a smoke mesquite flavoring and pressed into thick patties. Glenn pre-cooked these patties which enables them to hold together better without any outside breading added. The only remaining thing to do is warm them up before eating – in a pan, in the microwave, on the grill. Warmed up, Glenn served these patties on a hamburger bun, slice of American cheese and some Walnut Creek Black Bean Salsa.

Thick, juicy with mesquite flavoring

Thick, juicy chicken patties with a hint of smoky flavor along with a sweet tasting salsa – Glenn has created one chicken patty with a delicious flavor. The patty held together well in the bun and it doesn’t have a breading for an outer coating. I want more….

Speaking of new test kitchen items, Glenn has added a chicken cordon bleu sausage and a Santa Fe chicken sausage to his ever increasing selection of available sausage and brats to buy.

Home made Wieners With a Sweet-tasting BBQ Sauce

Published by Rilee Waller on July 16th, 2014

Brats – kielbasa – hot dogs – sausage; you can find it at Smokehouse Glenn’s and it’s home made. Today, it was home made wieners and not just ordinary ones either. By customer request, Smokehouse Glenn brought us the “Bun-Busting Wieners”!!!

Bust your buns!

Bust your buns!

Bigger than ordinary wieners, packed with Glenn’s very own seasoning recipe, using select cuts of pork in natural casing – these are delicious! The flavor is big, the size is big; by the time you add your favorite condiments, the bun won’t be able to hold all this deliciousness!

As an added flavor boost, Smokehouse combined these tasty wieners with a barbeque sauce from Walnut Creek. One of several products from Walnut Creek, Glenn choose their Spicy Chipotle Apple Butter Barbeque Sauce to these sliced up wieners and voila – instant appetizer! Don’t let the Spicy Chipotle in the name shy you away from trying this sauce. That flavor is very mild in comparison to the sweet, apple butter flavor that is prominent in this sauce!

Using toothpicks, they tasted great by themselves OR you could serve them on your favorite cracker for extra appetizer goodness!

NEW from The Salt Works of Seattle, WA. Glenn just received Black Hawaiian Sea Salt!! I am already a flavor fan of the Himalayan Pink Sea Salt, containing 84 trace minerals, very tasty and better than ordinary table salt. The Black Hawaiian Sea Salt is solar evaporated Pacific sea salt combined with activated charcoal.two salts

Spicy Brat Patties With X-tra Flavor!

Published by Rilee Waller on July 9th, 2014

Smokehouse Glenn has the biggest variety of brat flavors I’ve EVER found in a meat market! Today, Glenn brought in his legendary “jalapeno and pepper jack” brats BUT in patty form on buns. These brat patties are incredible “as is” just because Glenn starts off with premium select cuts of pork, coarsely ground, his special seasoning recipe, bits of jalapeno peppers and chunks of pepper jack cheese.

Spicy Ketchup & Mayo!

However, Glenn didn’t stop there with his flavoring. He brought in two samples from the dozens of specialty condiments found at Smokehouse Glenn.
Mama Selita’s Jalepeno Ketchup has “Sassy Attitude” made by from RedGold Tomatoes. Their slogan – Use it on whatever your heart desires. This is definitely ketchup plus extra flavor. I would use this on my home made oven baked french fries!!!

Nothing Ordinary  With These Two!

Nothing Ordinary With These Two!

Woeber’s Kickin’ Buffalo Mayonnaise is definitely a condiment spicy flavor lovers should have on their table. The secret to this feisty flavor is the red cayenne peppers used in their recipe. This is the fourth Woeber’s product that I love; I’ve tried Horseradish Sauce, Jalapeno Mustard and the Sweet &Spicy Mustard – very good and tasty flavoring!
Glenn offers his brats in patty form during the summer but in brat links form, they’re always available all year long.

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.

Two Flavors

Two Flavors

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.

Homemade Polish Sausage Topped With BBQ Sauce!

Published by Rilee Waller on June 11th, 2014

Smokehouse Glenn is by far the best sausage maker in the area – whatever he stuffs in a natural casing is thumbs up delicious! Today, he shared his fresh polish sausage with us topped off with a choice of two of his new BBQ sauces. I tried both of his BBQ sauces that he brought in – Sugar Free BBQ Sauce & South Texas BBQ Liquid!

Light Sweet BBQ Sauce

Light Sweet BBQ Sauce

I already know that Glenn’s Polish sausage is delicious but the test was which of his BBQ sauces would win a favorable vote. It is surprising that the Sugar Free sauce still had a sweet taste to it but it does have a form of sugar (maltitol) in it or it wouldn’t have it’s sweet taste. The South Texas BBQ is thick, hearty and smoky sweet! My choice is the South Texas – it reminds me too much of my favorite sauce already! Either choice, you will love Glenn’s new sauces!

Hearty, Sweet BBQ!

Chicken Gets Stirred Up With Glenn’s New Marinades

Published by Rilee Waller on June 4th, 2014

Smokehouse Glenn always brings in great tasting, simple dishes to sample from ingredients available from his shop, Smokehouse Glenn’s. Today, Glenn made two chicken stir fry dishes using his two new oriental marinades; Sweet Honey Orange and Mandarin Teriyaki from Excalibur Seasonings & Marinades.

Glenn started by cutting up chicken breasts, placing them into a vacuum seal bags, each with one of his new marinade sauces. He let these sit over night and cooked them up in the morning. Mixed them up in a portion of cooked mixed vegetables and serve! I tasted each dish and also tasted each sauce separately and these sauces are great!! Sweet Honey Orange is robust with a rich citrus orange flavor and a hint of honey. Mandarin Teriyaki had a rich soy, garlic and sesame taste that was equally delicious. I like to make Lo Mein noodles and have perfected my own sauce recipe but these marinades would be a great base for a glaze that I usually make to mix in with the noodles. Glenn’s customers will certainly enjoy these two new items in his store.
