While in Reno we embarked on a mini-meat adventure to Butcher Boy Meat Market. I did a little research on the World Wide Web to find this establishment. The name Butcher Boy had a familiar ring. At one time there was two Butcher Boy Meat Markets in this area but had shuttered their doors. Is this a reincarnation of the originals? We drove right by our destination and had to circle back because it is located in a small shopping center off the main street. The outside is fairly non-descript. Once inside we were in our familiar environment of a glorious meat palace.
We got to meet the owner Ken Jolly who goes by the title “Mr. Meat”. Ken confirmed that this was the reincarnation of the original Butcher Boy Meat Markets. I had to ask him if he had any house smoked bacon and unfortunately it was still in the works. He did have some “World Famous Stuffed Pork Chops”. I inquired what makes them World Famous? He replied that people from all over the world request them. That was good enough for us and put two huge chops in the cart.
Butcher Boy has house made sausage which we purchased a Calabrese and Bratwurst. It was tough to make a decision with all the meat offerings today. We also got a hand trimmed two inch thick USDA Choice New York strip steak. House cured ham, ham hocks, charcuterie, poultry (pre-made chicken kabobs), marinated steaks pork & beef, and a whole line up of game made for so many choices. There was also a supply of spices, rubs and marinades available. This is a one stop meat emporium.
We went to the cashier to check out and we ringed the bell by purchasing over 50 dollars of goods. The prize was a pound of ground chuck. This is my kind of prize. Butcher Boy Meat Market is a wonderful place to purchase meat products. We plan to return in the future to check out the house smoked bacon. We are looking forward to trying the World Famous Stuffed Pork Chops. This was a great mini-meat adventure.
