America's Original Applewood Smoked Meats

Nueske's Photo Gallery

John Nueske was a good student at the right hand of his father Wilhelm as he learned to smoke meat in Europe in the 1800s.

In the 1950s Robert Nueske's (R.C. to his friends and customers) lone delivery truck grew to a small fleet.  Shipments were made all over Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota.

The Nueske family's original smokehouse still stands on the grounds just in front of the Wittenberg retail store.


These early Nueske's delivery trucks bear the slogan "Taste Tells" on the windshield.  Then and now, the unmatched flavor yielded from gentle Applewood smoking says it all.
