Smokehouse of the Catskills

We have a new love in our lives.  It's a good old fashioned family owned place on Route 212 in Saugerties called Smokehouse of the Catskills.  While they may have the worst representation on the Internet, they have some of the best German/Catskill food in the region.  We've been there twice and have bought pounds of pure pleasure in the form of smoked venison kielbasa, regular (?) kielbasa, pretzels, pork fillet and skirt steak for the bbq, and amazingly smoked cheddar and another smoked cheese.

Next week I think we should go for their westphalian ham and double smoked bacon cut to order.  Or the smoked pork chops.  Or the various smoked sausages and salami.

You hunters (?) can also bring your meat to them to get it smoked!  We are not that "mountain" yet, but we did post our first No Trespassing signs to fend off the hunters.  Here I am cultivating my "private property" look:
If we were hunters it would be easy to find a target.  These turkeys (7 of them) passed by our window yesterday.
