Yoopermoose Posted April 4, 2018 Share #26 Posted April 4, 2018 "Dang! You're from Michigan?!?!?!?! WE LOVE THAT STATE! LOVE the west side and Lake Michigan. The Dunes...Traverse City...did the Tunnel of Trees! Thanks for your well wishes, and invites too! As a matter of fact...wait...let me get the bottle, be right back...(the BEST rum I have every tasted...be right back...) ......back...have you ever visited this place?------>Northern Latitudes Distillery? Let me tell ya...I like rum, if I'm going to have a hard drink...and about to do so-----> THIS IS THE BEST RUM ON THE PLANET! THE BEST! I know that I yelled that out...but to all rum lovers...THIS...is to sip for! The place is an on-site distillery...that has such neat and different takes on hard liquors. For instance, there is a white horse-radish Vodka..that people (no lie...) will travel TO----> Traverse City area, JUST to pick this up...if you are a vodka lover...you want this...lol. Ok..end of commercial segment, lol. Rum drinkers...you can't order on line...they can't ship (Michigan law on hard liquor (dumb)) so you have an excuse to visit Traverse City, Michigan...and the wife can pick up the Vodka... Deal? WHALEBACK SPICED RUM, is the ticket! Rum drinkers, rejoice! Cowpuc...also...that by the side of the road Smoke House eatery? What's the proper name of it..do you and your wife know? Anyway...we were all starving...had just picked up from the above mentioned...and saw all the hub-bub around this place. I ordered the smoked brisket sandwich and basket. LAWRD! with the first bite...I am a major carnivorous smoke meat hound...put spareribs in front of me...and see a rack gone in 23 seconds...that sort of thing..lol...anyway...they had smoked many large briskets of beef for over 12 hours...and my eyes rolled like slot machine numbers with the first bite. That lasted less than 23 seconds..so I had to get up from the picnic table and load up again. I have no shame...when truly...truly (a long hour, hickory or apple wood smoker is in play) smoked meat in in the offing...no shame " Cheers, Smokin' Beef Brisket Joe Just for clarification, Traverse City and Northern Michigan is NOT Upper Michigan. It is the place where trolls reside below the bridge. [emoji563] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
