Head to Plath’s Meat, a Tip of the Mitt institution since 1913.
I brought home a pound of their thick-cut bacon and the family agreed that it was the best we’ve had. The Summer Sausage was tasty, too. Wish we’d been able to sample some of the other smoked meats that Plath’s is known for, but I only had a small cooler with me.
The Rest of The Story: Tucker the Wonder Dog wasn’t the least bit interested in the pig’s ear (yes, it was a real pig’s ear) I brought him.
Plath’s Meat is based in downtown Rogers City, on the Lake Huron shore, with a second location in Petoskey, on Lake Michigan. If you’re not traveling to the area you can phone in an order.
