If you are looking for smokehouse meats, check out Stubby’s, 115 North Davis Street in Vicksburg.
Stubby’s Jerky Smokehouse & Specialty Meats, a family-run smokehouse, produces smoked meats and cheeses.
Owners Scott and Kelly Haynes had been perfecting the craft of smoked meats by making their own jerky for many years before opening the store in 2005. Stubby’s is known for its jerky which they have in an assortment of flavors in beef, turkey, chicken and pork.
They make their own brats and sausages, in natural casings, which also come in a wide variety of flavors. Hunter stix snack sticks in beef, turkey or chicken are popular as are their smoked hams and their old-fashioned, sugar-cured smokehouse bacon. Their home made hot dogs are said to be “killer,” but the smoked sausages are “killer grillers.”
As a specialty meat market, they sell a full line of choice or better Angus including prime rib, filet mignon, New York Strip, and their top beef seller, the choice beef rib eye signature steak.
Stubby’s also offers Grade A pork andMiller Poultry chicken. You can purchase whole chickens, or just boneless breasts. If you want their hot smoked turkey ready for Thanksgiving, get your name on the list early, because they always sell out. Stubby’s will cater parties up to about 400 people.
Stubby’s phone number is 269-649-2499. Hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. They are closed on Sunday.
