Taking a roadtrip thru Michigan is one of THE most fun things you can do...there's a lot to do, a lot to see, a lot to discover.....and a lot to eat. What would a roadtrip up north be without stopping at a party store, convenience store, or any out-of-the-ordinary shop to buy munchies while driving? PRETTY DULL, THAT'S WHAT.

How many times have you driven by the Brick House Jerky Outlet on US127 north of St. Johns and thought "I gotta stop in there sometime".....and have you?

I've driven by this unique little shop and gawked at the signs out front that described their wares within and its always peaked my curiosity. So I thought I'd throw it out to all of you and see if any of you have stopped and tried any one of their different kinds of exotic jerkies, sausages, and other types of meat snacks. Like what, you ask?
Kangaroo
Gator
Scorpion
Shark
Python
Turkey
Rabbit
Buffalo
Ostrich
Elk
Rattlesnake
...and yeah, beef.

That's just a tip of the iceberg...you'll find all sorts of other roadtrip munchies like pickled eggs, pickled bologna, all sorts of cheese & cheese dips, pickled asparagus, Mackinac Island fudge, cold cuts, pasties, ground meats, smoked seafood, crackers, tons of candies, and so much more.

As I mentioned earlier, whenever I drive by, I marvel at the signs that tell me what's inside...I have not been inside yet, but one of these days I'm gonna stop.

Heading north, you can't miss this quirky little shop, its address given as 1969  E. Garfield Rd, Ashley. Have you stopped? If so, let me know what off-beat meat you purchased and how it tastes!!!
