Owner description: Smoke shop famous for its smoked meat specialties.
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We bought steaks for supper, a jar of pickled ham, country ham, sliced corned beef (delicious with the Amana Sauerkraut for reubens), fresh brats, Amana bakery breads, and lots of smoked brat selections and bacon to take back to family. (We're past t-shirts.) Everything has been delicious. Some local football fans told us that at a national bowl game, Amana meats were "exported" for the Iowa crowd.
The second room has samples, more German and unique items, lots of canned items, German mustard, summer sausages, and a third room has kitchen items.
There are whole hams, lunch meat that I think was head cheese, and many cheeses. The counter staff was informative and helpful as we made our selections.

I was able to pick up all I needed for a picnic at a reasonable price.They had salads, bread and beverages.
The meat was much better that packaged "lunch meats."

We stopped here to pick up some meat and cheese for a picnic lunch. They have a full-service meat counter where they will slice off as much as you need - we got just enough for our one meal (roast beef and provolone) and both were delicious. We sampled their summer sausage as well and it was very tasty. There are some shady picnic tables outside where you can eat, which we took advantage of.

This is a shop a little from the main Amana Colonies area. They have a small meat counter and a general store area full of German Food Products. The selection of cheeses and spreads were extensive, and I ended up buying a Pepperoni and Cheddar cheese that was delicious. I also had their Bacon and Summer Sausage, which both were among the best I have tasted. I recommend stopping if you are in the area, because chances are you will find something to eat.
