A seriously true hidden gem... If there were ever a nationwide jerky competition this place would be a dark horse. Everything is smoked on site and all the flavors are incredible. At the very least is the best in the U.P.

So we stopped in on Saturday morning saw the smoke and had to see what they were cooking, they were smoking fish outside. went in and got some jerky. Then sunday heading home we had to drive 20 mins out of our way and get some for the road. Dont miss this place people are wonderful too.

We can not come to the U.P without stopping! If your looking for smoked fish, jerky, or cheese curds this is the best place. They have the best smoked fish that we have ever found!! The employees are always friendly & willing to help answer questions, clean restrooms, and everything else you would find at a party store/gas station.

When traveling along US 2 to or from the Mackinac Bridge, this place is a must. The jerky is dynamite. The fish is excellent. When I go, I usually bring back some of these wonderful goodies back to my friends at home. This time around, they started to do smoked turkey legs and chicken wings which are up to par... More

Prayers that these people have great health and live forever because this is the very best smoked you will ever find, and we're very picky. It's even better than my Dad's, rest his soul, and his was over the top. If I could click my heels and magically be at a wonderful spot, it would be Gustufason's.
