Glenn encourages hunters to bring in their venison in skinned & quartered or de-boned AND Glenn will even smoke a hind quarter for you – it will turn out amazingly delicious!

Today, Glenn brought in three varieties of venison snacks – Jalapeno & Pepper Jack Summer sausage (his top seller), Habanero Snack Sticks and Summer Sausage. If you’ve never tasted venison, you would never believe something like these snacks made from this wild game could taste so good. The Habanero sticks had a delayed heat reaction on your palate but not too overwhelming to not enjoy. Jalapeno & Pepper Jack Summer sausage is great – any meat product with a great tasting cheese blended in a superb.

Venison Snack Sticks & Summer Sausage

Published by Rilee Waller on November 21st, 2012

Venison!!! The regional meat of choice in the U.P. especially with hunters, made an appearance for the Shopping Show today with Smokehouse Glenn!!! Glenn has made two different varieties of snack meats out of some local venison that was brought into the store by a friend who gave the meat to Glenn for recipe testing.

Glenn brought in both mild venison snack sticks and a venison summer sausage with jalapeno cheddar cheese. I would call Glenn’s snack sticks, “pocket food”, simply because you could carry a bag of these goodies with you in your pocket and as you are walking, biking, camping, hiking or even hunting; these tasty little morsels can accompany you and satisfy an appetite craving quite nicely. Their mild seasoning flavor is pleasing to the taste buds and would satisfy a general taste appeal for all eaters.

Delicious Goodness from Northern Meats










The summer sausage with jalapeno cheddar cheese is out of this world!!! Glenn’s overall seasoning recipe for the sausage possess a general mildness in it’s spicing combination…then add the extra ingredient of this spicy cheese and you’re talking a whole different taste experience! Very much along the same reference as what Chef Emeril Lagasse would refer to as “kicking it up another notch!!! This sausage sliced and served on your favorite cracker would be an enjoyable snack anytime one’s hunger needs satisfying.

Tasty Pepperoni That’s Actually Sausage

Published by Rilee Waller on September 21st, 2011

Marquette – 09/21/2011–  The “Custom Cut Butcher” dropped by today for our Shopping Show edition and brought in several samples of his deliciously homemade pepperoni.  However today we found out the true definition of pepperoni from the master himself.  At first glance I could notice what Glenn had produced was not the typical diameter of most pepperoni that most consumers are accustomed to finding in the store.  So here’s where our lesson begins: Pepperoni 101…  Glenn continues by telling us the Italian process for pepperoni making.  It’s authentic secret lies in the aging process, the pepperoni, after the meat has been seasoned and cased needs to naturally age in a room that has a specific temperature and humidity climate.

The aging process requires one to two months curing time, so this one particular meat product needs it’s own undisturbed place to process.  So here’s the fork in the road for the pepperoni making of smokehouse Glenn.  Since space at Northern Meats is limited, Glenn has chosen to process his pepperoni in a shorter time span.  This actually makes his “pepperoni” a true meat stick or sausage variety.  So does Glenn’s adaptive process take away from the quality of this product… by no means!

Glenn’s pepperoni, actually sausage is lean, moist and well balanced in flavor with his own spicing combination that is his trade secret but oh, so-o-o-o-o good!!! I learned from Glenn that since he can’t afford the space needed for the true aging process, he keeps his recipe diameter to the size of sausage so that the product will dry adequately in his prescribed process.

Glenn’s venison snack stick hot version was mildly spiced with cayenne pepper just enough to add a “zing” that is very tasty and delicious!!! Northern Meats’ sampling for today is definitely delicious and is an outstanding product that can satisfy any hunger urge for the need for delicious meat snack; convenient for all portable applications if you are planning a trip away from home, family interaction time where food is needed or just plain snack food during that movie, sports game or favorite show!!!! Northern Meats is the place for all your delicious meat entrees and snacks!!!!
