Tom in Minneapolis turned me on to an excellent source for cured meats located on Lake Superior in Duluth, Northern Waters Smokehaus. As they describe themselves:
“Eric and company are just as committed to using local, sustainably raised meats and fish as they are to hosting plenty of friendly food conversation. Our eclectic little shop is filled with smoked fish, handcrafted smoked meats, artisan salumi, unique deli sandwiches, and other gourmet sundries.”
For me the real find is this beautiful Polish sausage. Of course the Bison pastrami sounds pretty fantastic as well. Worth checking out!
