Angelo is the vivacious and colorful owner of ‘Angelo’s Meats’ located in Petaluma California. Angelo’s has been one of our favorite meat destinations for over 20 years. He creates some magical smoked and cured products in his small family run smokehouse. He has a large selection of house made sausages, various cuts of meat and of course bacon.. Chicken Apple sausage is one of our favorites. The main reason we go to Angelo’s is for his pepper or plain bacon. This is some of the best bacon in California. It is always a special treat when Angelo is working.
Angelo has a special way of making you feel like an old friend. His heavy Italian accented speech creates an atmosphere of friendship. Angelo knows I come around tomato season to purchase his wonderful bacon. Once he had some special tomato seeds that he acquired from Italy that he gifted me. These were the thickest, tastiest roma tomatos that I ever grew. Angelo is a wealth of information. He has shared some of his bacon making secrets with me. If you purchase a cut of meat he will give you specific instructions on how to prepare it. Angelo has created a video that I would like to share with you. It is “Angelo Smoking a Pig”. This video is glimpse of a man that is larger than life. He is a great man and a friend. It is about 10 minutes long so grab a beverage and enjoy!
