    Phoenix area butcher/meat shops

    Hobe meats, 6044 N. 16th Street, Phoenix, AZ 85016 good meats, great steaks. can be pricy. I use groupon coupons to bring the price down. Reminds me of Midwestern meat shop.

    The Meat Shop, 202 E Buckeye Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85004 great pork, locally raised. small shop so they don't stock to much. they do special orders though.

    Schreiners sausage, 3601 N 7th St, Phoenix, AZ 85014 home made sausage, good quality. I like their Polish kielbasa.


    I know others exist so if you know of any and have a review please share.

    For the Phoenix area, you can't beat The Pork Shop, 3359 E. Combs Rd, Queen Creek, AZ 85140 (theporkshop [dot] com). When I lived in the valley, I shopped there regularly. They butcher on Mondays and Tuesdays, and sell the rest of the week. So? Go there on Wednesday or Thursday at the latest for the best choice. They also make fantastic bacon and smoked sticks.

    If you happen to be in the Flagstaff area, we just got a new meat shop that's outstanding, Proper Meats + Provisions, 110 S. San Francisco St, Flagstaff, AZ 86001 (they're on Facebook; they also have a website address (propermeats [dot] com), but it wasn't working just now. They butcher and sell only locally raised beef. The shop is owned by the peeps who own Brix and Criollo, two great local-food restaurants here in Flagstaff.

        You won't regret the drive. I lived in Grayhawk, and it was about an hour for me. Try to find a Wednesday (1st choice) or Thursday (2nd choice; don't bother on the weekends) where you can "arrange" your work schedule and head down there around 9-10 am, after the rush on the Superstition. The drive could be a bit faster now. When I was making it, Ironwood Dr south to Combs was a 2-lane POS. A new 4-lane road was being built right next to it. Of course, with the 202 open now, there may be a better way to get down there.

          go east on the san tan 202 then head south onto state route 24, which dumps onto Ellsworth which takes you down to Queen Creek. I am actually going down there this weekend. I will swing in and check it out.

            checked out the Pork Shop in Queen Creek, they have great pork products and they weren't sold out. I picked up some sausage, bologna, bacon. the bologna reminds me of bologna when I was a kid in Minnesota. Prices were fare. To far to drive if that's the only reason I am going. So from time to time I will stop if in the area.

              The Pork Shop! I buy my Christmas Crowned Pork here. Awesome! You tell em how big diameter you want (mine was a 23 bone - 26" diameter) and they'll make it happen. Take it home and brine overnight. Smoke it for 3-4-5 hours and sit back to hear the raves...

                If you are on the west side of phoenix, sun city area I suggest Al's Meat market. 107th ave and Union Hills. All of his meats are shipped from Iowa from corn/grass feed farms. Normally gets all of his shipments on Tuesday. Extremely fresh meats beautiful coloring. He can special order meats by request. Have been going to him for years. So if driving to the east side is tough give Al and Trudy a call. Address: 18700 N 107th Ave #21, Sun City, AZ 85373
                Phone (623) 933-6400

                Placeholder

                The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                Placeholder

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                Placeholder

                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                Placeholder

                The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                Placeholder

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
