WESTERN'S SMOKEHOUSE WAS FOUNDED IN 1978 BY SAM WESTERN.
Originally, Western's Smokehouse was a local retail store and butcher shop that offered the finest selection of hickory smoked and fresh meat to the area. Over the years, Sam began to create his own brand of smokehouse flavors for Jerky, Sausage, and Barbeque Sauces. His recipes have won awards all over the world.
As time went on, people from all over the country began making Western's Smokehouse a destination for their specialty meats. A United States map displayed in the retail store records the hometown of the store's visitors. By popular demand, Western's began an online catalog of their specialty meat products that continues today.
In 1992, Sam's son, Kevin, joined the business and together they have continued to perfect the family recipes and smokehouse processes. In 2006, Western's launched a unique Smokehouse Meat Snack Product that is distributed nationally today.
In 2014, the construction of a brand new meat snack production facility began. Western's moved into this state of the art facility in May of 2015. The move tripled their production capabilities with room to grow.
Today the company is still family owned and operated. You can stop by the retail store and Sam can help you pick out a steak. The production portion of the company specializes in private label orders and growing the Western's brand of meat snacks.History Timeline
