Same Holmes Smokehouse recipe!

When owner Rodney Roth took over Holmes Smokehouse, he made one promise to the Holmes family: He would never change the original recipe. He has kept that promise to this very day.

Our pecan-smoked products are packed with family tradition, and we intend to keep it that way for as long as we’re cooking up quality meats.

After working in the food and beverage business for over 30 years, Scott has heard a lot of businesses use the term “family” and not necessarily mean it. In just seven years with Holmes Smokehouse, Scott truly believes that we are like a true family — we may not be blood, but we might as well be.

Scott’s goal is to create a new generation of Holmes Smokehouse fans who will keep the family tradition alive and enjoy the products for years to come. We’re so lucky to have you, Scooter!

Thomas Ryall has been a part of our family for a little over a decade alongside his wife Frances and their daughter Angela. His dedication, hard work, and loyalty has brought him from the shop floor to a supervisor position where he continues to be a leader. We are proud to have Thomas as a part of our Holmes Smokehouse family.

His favorite way to enjoy our products is to eat our Pork and Venison or Jalapeño Cheese sausages straight off the grill.

Mustard tends to be a love-it or hate-it condiment. That said, it is made with higher-quality, more natural ingredients than the leading topping, ketchup. The same could be said for our meat products.

Holmes Smokehouse meats are of the finest quality on the market. That’s what makes mustard and our smoked sausages a match made in heaven.

I bought some sliced smoked kielbasa at my local Aldi's. It's the best smoked kielbasa I've had outside of Pittsburgh, pa. Hope more of your products show up in Atlanta markets.
Do you ship your products?
Just had your smoked sausage for the first time and it was fantastic. Purchased at Harris Teeter in Kernersville NC. Keep sending that good stuff up this way!
Just finished eating from our first purchase of your thick-sliced Bacon from Publix. I hate to say I was very disappointed. The term "thick sliced" has a common connotation & criteria that your bacon definitely did not meet. My wife could hardly get the bacon out of the package it was cut so thin. We won't be purchasing again.
Stocked up Aldi in Arlington Texas
Hi! Do y'all ship? I picked up a couple of links on my way back to New Mexico and fell in love!
I have a VALUE PACK (42 oz - 2.62#) of your Pecan Smoked Sausage (Original). It has been REFRIGERATED (NOT Frozen) since I bought it. I just noticed the "Best By" date is 8/24/2019. The only other number on the pkg (I'm assuming it's the LOT#) is 164 2G EST 21634A. Is it still good to eat?
I live in St Croix, USVI. They have no good or even decent sausage. Can I have an order shipped? Debbie Vercher # missingtexas
The BEST kielbasa I’ve ever eaten! I’m from a family of Polish and Hungarian descent so I know kielbasa and this is awesome! Going on our Thanksgiving table this year.
Will your turkeys be available again at Kroger? I really need one!! Thanks
Moved to Florida from Texas and I can't find your sausage! 😭
Will yall be back in HEB?
