Food Fit For A Rock Star

It’s not every day a rock star walks through your front door, but that’s exactly what happened recently at North Country Smokehouse in Claremont, New Hampshire when Steven Tyler, lead singer of the band Aerosmith popped in and got an impromptu tour.

“Steven lives about 20 miles from here and was curious about what this place was, so he decided to stop by,” said Mike Satzow, owner, North Country Smokehouse. “Talk about a morale booster for my employees, when I walked into the plant with the lead singer of Aerosmith. Steven was extremely cordial and gracious.”

As luck would have it, it was a reunion of sorts between Tyler and Satzow, as the two had grown up in Claremont. And, in 1969, Tyler and his band at the time played at Satzow’s frat party at Middlebury College in Vermont, though the flamboyant singer had no idea of the connection when he decided to visit.


North County Smokehouse sent Tyler home with a good sampling of its delicious meats, including smoked duck breast, andouille sausage and smoky maple sausage links—the latter an appropriate choice as the singer a big fan of maple syrup.

Needless to say, he probably a big fan of smoked meats from North Country Smokehouse, which are packaged with the help of VC999 equipment.
