Smokin' Jake


Grandpa Jake started a tradition years ago….  No!! Not that tradition, the revenuers won’t let us make moonshine anymore!! 
He slow roasted prime cuts of perfectly seasoned meat over a smoldering hickory fire.  After a time word got around about Grandpa and our family grew.  Now we’ve taken that tradition and added IOWA’s farm fresh produce to create  mouth-watering morsels for you to experience. Linda & Sheldy (and Grandpa Jake of course) would like to welcome you.  BON APPETITE!!! (that means great eating) late night food restaurant places to eat

Who's Jake?


Some say he’s big as a house, but nary a thing to say. Some say he’s got a coat of steel, black as coal and smokes all day. Some say his presence alone fills the room with awe, Some say he will smoke everything, anything, one and all. If you have solved this little rhyme, we’ll be having a good time at…
