Samak Smoke House

Our smokehouse is located just to the west of our store and is checked daily by a Federal USDA inspector. We have been ranked as one of the cleanest and up-to-date smoking and drying facilities in the state.

We have been making jerky “The Old Fashioned Way” for over twenty-five years. Our high-quality, hand-cut beef and turkey jerky, smoked trout and kitchen fresh snack foods are made from the finest ingredients without any harmful preservatives or additives. And it is always fresh! Your jerky is shipped within days of being made.

We use high-end marinading and drying equipment to make our smoked fish, beef, and poultry. Using fresh cherry wood chips from Wisconsin (instead of liquid smoke). We also use a special marinade, and our jerky products are the freshest and best tasting around. No chemical aftertaste! No preservatives! Always fresh!

Every product is hand-cut and includes that personal touch that just cannot be found in other jerky products.
