Published by Rilee Waller on May 21st, 2014

Heading into the memorial Day weekend, Smokehouse Glenn is sharing two items that he made with items from his store – very easy and very delicious.

Topping of sauce, mushrooms, green, red & yellow peppers, onions and cheese! Mmmmm! Delicious flavors all throughout this pizza with just the right amount of topping that I like – many!!Smokehouse Glenn's Pan Pizza

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

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!

Glenn’s Roasted Chicken Swirls Taste Good!

 This morning, it was poultry time with Smokehouse Glenn featuring a recipe from his kitchen once again incorporating seasoning items from his store.

Starting out with his Butter Garlic marinaded chicken breasts, Glenn ran them through his “cuber” which tenderizes the chicken and flattened them out in one process. With the chicken breast flattened out, he then placed a mixture of fresh minced garlic, sauteed onion, cooked spinach, crumbled up Apple Cinnamon bacon and Cinnamon Pear balsamic vinegar. This mixture was placed on the middle of the chicken, rolled up and baked in the oven until the chicken was cooked. As you can see, very tasty – simple to make and delicious!Chicken _Vinegar

 Smokehouse Glenn presented a tasty flavor spin to pork this morning which will have you squealing for more! Today, Glenn took one of his Chairman Reserve pork loin roasts and gave it a flavor infusion. First, Glenn sprinkled the roast with a generous amount of his Ultimate Pork Chop and Roast Rub. Then he drizzled a combination of Ginger & Honey Balsamic vinegar along with Lemon Olive Oil.

Dearborn Ham Gets Balsamized!

Published by Rilee Waller on March 20th, 2014

 Smokehouse Glenn experimented successfully this morning with two flavored balsamic vinegars that he added to Dearborn spiral sliced ham. Glenn experimented with two different flavored balsamic vinegars and came up with two distinct tastes for an already proven product – Dearborn ham!

Jazzed up flavored ham!

Maple flavored and Pineapple flavored vinegars were drizzled over slices of Dearborn ham and warmed in the oven. Simple, flavorful and many tasty applications! Use this ham in a breakfast dish, a hot ham sandwich with mashed potatoes or as a party hor d’orve. You could also combine the maple and pineapple to make a glaze for pork chops, pork steaks or roasts.

Vinegars sold in three sizes!

The pineapple flavor was the more preferred choice over maple, personally, I’m more accustomed to family recipes that had pineapple rings and cherries on our whole ham than maple. However, I think the maple flavor would work well in a baked bean dish or possibly mixed in your pancake patter!

 

 

Smokehouse Glenn’s Open House went well this past weekend. Glenn featured several dishes also featuring his fruit flavored vinegars as toppings for ice cream. Now that his Test Kitchen is fully functional, the store will feature weekend cooking and sampling of various recipes using his store products.

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.

 Smokehouse Glenn truly has a great store of premium grade beef, chicken, pork and seafood for area customers to choose from. 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!
