    Heritage Craft Butchers

    All the craft meats and charcuterie you can dream of, available just a stones throw away.

    Heritage Craft Butchers offers a butchery clinic, which I will be attending along with other members of the Pittsburgh Whiskey Friends this weekend. The event will be as follows:

    "You all arrive at 7pm. We put out a charcuterie board as an appetizer and follow that up with a family-style meal of roasted meats and seasonal vegetables. After you've eaten dinner, we move back into our cutting room where we go over the methodology, techniques, and process by which we break down a pig. It's actually pretty interesting and you are all but assured to have the most unique "what I did this weekend" story at work on Monday morning."

    "65 dollars per person. BYOB. These generally run about 3 hours total. we like to think of it as a fun alternative to dinner and a movie."

    Man, I'd pay twice that if only it were closer. That looks extremely cool.

              klflowers you might tell the better half that goat is supposed to be the most healthy meat out there, it's very low in fat. Just don't call them kids.

              ofelles, I remember that post. I am pretty sure that is what got my hankering for some goat started in the first place.

            You'll enjoy it. I spent a weekend at an orchard/meadery in Zillah, WA observing a slaughter/butcher by Farmstead Meatsmith. An excellent learning experience. You'll take away a lot, even if you never butcher a pig.

                    I had a great night at Heritage Craft Butchers last night. We started with some charcuterie, then a dinner of mushroom stuffed porchetta, bourbon cream mashed potatoes and maple bourbon glazed brussel sprouts. Then we moved on to the live butchery clinic, breaking down 1/2 a pig into all its cuts. Very interesting demonstration, chock full of interesting facts, tales, and fun anecdotes.
                    Oh, and there was much sharing of whiskey too! There was a 2018 Thomas H.Handy Rye from the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection, Wild Turkey Master’s Keep Cornerstone Rye, Octomore 9.1 & 9.3, and Ardbeg Traigh Bhan. There was also Little Book 1 & 3, Maker’s 101, Weller Full Proof, Parker’s Heritage Heavy Char Rye, 1978 WT 101, Stagg Jr, and Old Granddad 114. Great night with great people sharing whiskey & food, can’t ask for much more than that... cheers! 🥃
                    PS: if you haven’t been to Heritage, you owe it to yourself to get there, seriously, you deserve it... and don’t forget to tell them Pittsburgh Whiskey Friends sent you 😉

                        Each person in attendance received a complimentary pork chop as part of their attendance fee. I cooked mine up for dinner tonight. I used Meat Church Honey Hog rub with a bit of yellow mustard as a binder. I reverse seared it on my Traeger with hickory pellets. It came out incredible. Best pork chop I've ever had.

                        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.

                        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.

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.

                        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                        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.

                        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.

                        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
