When I was in 6th grade, I thought the height of customization was getting my initials embroidered on my eggplant LLBean backpack.
Nowadays, you can get just about anything custom made. Consumers are more conscious of the value of things. If you are going to pay a premium price, you had better do your homework to make sure you are getting your money's worth.
Enter: custom smoked meats. Now I thought I had heard of everything, but a good friend of mine in Long Island bought a meat smoker, and he enjoys using it so much, he is now taking custom orders. Imagine deliciously smoked salmon, hickory flavored through and through and marinated for hours to your exact specifications.
