igh in the Adirondack Mountains, located at the bottom of Hackinsack Mountain in Warrensburg, NY, is where you will find Oscar's Adirondack Mountain Smoke House. Founded by Oscar and Edith Quintal, this family owned business has been run by the Quintals for over 45 years. The unique quality and flavor of Oscar's smoked meats have been tasted and enjoyed all over the world. Our original wood-fired brick smoke house was built in 1946, and as the demand for Oscar's products grew more smokers were added. Today, five smoke houses are hard at work creating the savory flavor found in all of our meats.
In 1940 Oscar Quintal and his wife Edith, moved to Warrensburg. In 1943 the Quintals opened the original Oscar's Smokehouse in the Music Hall, but the business fell victim to the devastating Music hall fire of 1945. Bruised but not beaten, the Quintals rebuilt and reopened in 1946 at the present location.
As with any business, you must adapt to the changing times and trends of the business world, which Oscars has done very well. From the addition of lower salt products such as our hams, bacons and cheeses, to lower fat products such as our wide variety of chicken sausages. This along with the "Oscars Attitude" is what has allowed the business to grow to the greatness that it is today.
Oscars has become a household name not only locally, but on a national scale. Through our mail order customers and national wholesale accounts, we have built a following that is based mostly on word-of-mouth advertising. By using the same formulas that Oscar himself used, to adapting to the times with modern formulas, Oscars can give you that home cooked taste that you have grown to love.
With 159 products produced on the premises, Oscars surely has something for everyone, from the simple to the exotic, from the old world to modern times, and from the young at heart to the old.
Oscars would like to thank all of our customers for the many years of loyalty, because we know that without you, we would be just another meat market.
