            Will do. 10:00 this morning is my inspection!!

          Show us “where’s the beef”. Let er roll! 👍 🕶


            Best wishes for a prosperous future. I buy most of my meat from local farmers and they all tell me about their processors closing and having having to transport their animals farther away and increasing their stress. A stressed animal is not a tasty animal. So you're definitely filling a need.

                  Thanks . I has been a battle but a enjoyable one.

                Looking good Backroadmeats . Will you sell retail cuts of meat as well as do custom butching?

                  No I can't sell any retail just do custom processing.. retail is a whole other level of inspection.

                Huh it has been a year already!! We processed over 80,000 lbs of beef and hogs this year along with 132 deer and over 10,000 lbs of deer sausage!! The schedule is filling up fast for next year. Couldn't have asked for a better first year. A lot of it is due to the help I have found,. We processed 1894 lbs of steers in 6 hours today .. tomorrow we will grind and stuff the burger.. unreal..

              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

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

              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 Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
