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.
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.
