Welcome to Rhinelander, Wisconsin, or the Northwoods, as its known to locals. It’s famous for the natural beauty, the mythical Hodag creature, and most recently Trig’s award-winning Smokehouse.
What began simply with just two employees in the ’90s has grown considerably over the years as its products, including the “World’s Best” brats have won numerous awards and arguably become as legendary as the Hodag itself. In need of more room for production because of the success the company began searching for a new, larger location.
Trig’s found a building in 2012, and built the state-of-the-art Smokehouse facility. Located at 1607 North Stevens Street in Rhinelander, the building is able to satisfy the high customer demand and allow for the continued development of the line of smoked meat products.
Driving that popularity are the Smokehouse’s Master Meat Crafters, a distinction earned from the University of Wisconsin. Their focus on creating the highest quality smoked meats is not just a job, but a way of life and probably better described as a savory obsession.
Their singular focus on the quality of ingredients and signature recipes make all Trig’s Smokehouse products a must try.
Today the Smokehouse creates over one hundred varieties of the freshest smoked sausages, hams, bacons, snack sticks, and, of course, the award-winning brats.
But the best news is not only are Trig’s Smokehouse products available at all Trig’s locations, but online as well. Visit www.TrigsSmokehouse.com for all the Smokehouse products, including gift baskets loaded with Smokehouse favorites.
