Thursday Doors – Smoking Good

SmokeCollageWe took an overnight trip north to the White Mountains this week, and we never go to that part of the state without stopping at the Brick Store in Bath, New Hampshire.

Don’t blink when going through Bath because you’ll miss it. Bath was incorporated in 1761 and was named for a well-known English statesman and orator, William Pulteney, first Earl of Bath.

It coversย only 38 squares miles, and the population is around 1,000. During tourist season, the population dramatically increasesย when visitors flock to Bath to visit the Brick Store, which is the oldest continuously operated country store in the United States, and the 1832 covered bridge next door.

We love the covered bridge and the old store, but the real reason for our stop is to pick up some meat that has been expertly smoked behind this little blackened door.

Have you ever had smoked pepperoni? Yum. I love this little door. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a variety of doors you’ve collected! From elegant entries on European streets to this simple, rustic welcome into delicious flavors! I think I have to envy the New England finds you make in clams, lobsters and now smoked pepperoni!

    • If you are anywhere in the area, it is well worth the side trip. The bridge, waterway, Brick Store and smoked meat are wonderful. You’d love the photo ops. If you head that way, I have a farm that makes award winning cheese and a brewery in an old grist mill. ๐Ÿ™‚
