    Good butcher in Milwaukee?

    I am looking for suggestions on where to go for good ribs in or around Milwaukee. Rays maybe?

      I have never been to Miss Beverly but speed queen is good. Do you go to a butcher you like? Grasch's on North Ave. is pretty good.

        I've had great experiences with both the product and service from House of Homemade Sausage in Germantown.

        Edit: Just noticed you asked specifically about ribs. HHS seems to carry baby back ribs only. I usually get St. Louis cut from Sendiks and they've been good. If there are better options, I'm all ears!

          Hi, I have been going to graschs on north ave. Nice meaty ribs and good selection of pork shoulders.

            Bavette La Boucherie is definitely the best butcher shop in Milwaukee, hands down. They are located in the 3rd ward. You can also sit down for a sandwich and a beer and watch the butcher dismantle whole carcasses.

                There is a Restaurant Depot in Milwaukee at 5250 South 6th Street Milwaukee, WI 53213. Phone: 414-483-1800
                I go to the one here in Tampa quite often. Great selection and even better prices. It is a members only place but my bro made up a BBQ team business card and got a membership with no issues.

                For me Bunzel's 9015 W. Burleigh St. has been my favorite in recent times. Wide selection on hand, special orders no problem, great people working the meat counter. Other good spots are Ray's in Greenfield, Robert's Specialty Meats on Sunset Drive in Waukesha.

                  Another good one I forgot is Kettle Range Meat Co. 5501 W. State St. They have a location in Elm Grove too. Great for grass fed prime grade beef that is dry aged in house. Pricey, but awesome product.

                  This is an old one. It didn't click until someone mentioned Grasch Market. They sold out to Sendik's three or four years ago.

                    Yeah I grew up about two miles from Grasch’s. Was a great store. A loss for the community.

                    But Although this was an old post, I felt an update couldn’t hurt. Things have really changed Out there since this thread was started.

                    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 PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use.

                    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.

All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
