While many folks are having a ball at the State Fair, Duluth is half-empty, traffic friendly, and ready to show you all of its secrets. Come eat some smoked fish on the deck, have a beer at Lake Avenue Cafe, and maybe take a dip in the Big Lake. No Blues, no Tall Ships: just you and our fair (no pun intended) city on a hill.
We will be closing early on Saturday, August 11th, at 5 o’clock, for our annual staff celebration. Come see us on Sunday!
The 4th of July is one of the Smokehaus’s favorite holidays: fireworks, sing-along anthems, and most importantly GRILLING GALORE. In honor of this great holiday, we will be open from 11-5 on Wednesday. We have several varieties of frozen brats, smoked polish sausage, smoked andouille, and our fabulous smoked ribs.
We will be serving up our sandwiches as usual, so stop by for a bite and go home with a bigger bite!
Due to the nature of the holiday week, we have decided to halt shipping next week and resume on Monday, July 9th. Fed Ex will not be running on Wednesday, July 4th, and for the safety of our customers, our perishable products cannot be trapped en route for the extra 24 hours. Please note that any orders we receive up until then will be on hold.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and look forward to serving you on July 9th!
We were surprised and delighted to listen to NPR this morning and hear a glowing recommendation from a customer and Rick Nelson, a man of impeccable taste. Thanks Mike and Rick! Click here to listen.

Summer came early this year, with amazingly mild weather and early starts for flora and fauna alike. There are plenty of great happenings this year (like every year), and we’ve selected a few for June.
The Park Point Rummage Sale is June 8-9. You’ll find antiques, trashy treasures, gently used clothing, and trinkets galore as you meander down the flowery miles of Duluth’s proudest sand spit. Don’t forget to stop in at the Smokehaus for a sandwich … bargain hunting is a hungry business.
June 15-17 is Grandma’s Marathon, a yearly athletic/social extravaganza that brings people from around the globe to our little strip of Lake Superior. This year, we will be getting in on the action by selling a very special addition of grilled Polish sausage for Marathon Nights, a music, beer, and food festival located right outside our front door! With acts like Eric Koskinen Band, Uptown Boys, and 4 on the Floor, come down to Dewitt-Seitz to chow and boogie!
Sunday, June 17th is Father’s Day, of course, and we’ll be selling plenty of unofficial “Dad Baskets” – smoked Lake Trout, soda crackers, and blue cheese wedges!
Stay tuned for July!
