    Alpine Butcher

    Located on the line of Lowell/Chelmsford, it's a great family owned business. All of their beef is USDA Prime. I bought a brisket from there over the weekend and it did not disappoint.

    Looks like an interesting place. A couple of their cuts looked wagyu almost.

      I guess if you live in Lowell MA it would be a great place to check out. Does not appear as though they ship and really not much info on specifically what they carry cut wise. But hey, finding a good butcher these days is worth announcing.

        They're very much a local business and don't ship (at least not to my knowledge). I live 12 minutes away and there's not too many butcher shops in northern Mass so wanted to point out a good one for those in the area looking.

            What was the price per pound for that brisket? About an hour from me, but I travel all over MA for work.

              I believe it was $8.50/pp. Brisket cost ~$72, weighed ~8.5 lbs

                  It's only about a 22 hour drive (one way) for me, might be a worthwhile road trip. Leave here after work at 5:00 pm on a Friday, arrive there at 3:00 pm on Saturday, buy some meat, sleep for a few hours and I'm home by early evening on Sunday. Probably not the craziest thing I've ever done for a good cut of meat.

                    Foster a great relationship with them. A cup of coffee and box of pigs occasionally goes a long way in my experience. Give them photos of your best cooks to put on the wall, and ask for business cards. It will pay off in the end, I promise.

                        Thanks for the heads up. I work in Burlington and might grab a cooler and run up there at lunch!

                      the good one grill
                      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.

                      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.
