For many of us, having a full-service butcher nearby isn’t in the cards. If we’re lucky, we’ve been able to establish a decent rapport with the meat department manager at our local supermarket. Imagine being able to walk up to the butcher counter, order your cut or cuts of meat, and have them take directly from the primal, not grabbed off the rack of a cooler.
Luckily, there are still places where you can get this kind of service, and Cooper’s Meat Market of San Antonio, TX is one of them.
Here’s a look at what you can expect to find at Cooper’s Meat Market:
In this BBQ Beat Podcast session, I talk with Andy Lugo, Head Butcher and Executive Chef at Cooper’s Meat Market in San Antonio, Texas. Andy was kind enough to walk me through the operations there at Cooper’s, and after our talk – I was left wishing we had a place like his here in Central Florida.
I hope you’ve enjoyed listening to this BBQ Beat podcast session with Andy Lugo. It’s clear that he has a great passion for working with the highest grades of meats available. Also clear is his love of providing excellent customer service and high quality to his customers.
If you find yourself in the San Antonio area, drop into Cooper’s Meat Market and ask for Andy. Tell him you hear this podcast and ask him what they have on hand that’s good. My guess is that you’ll be very happy with what he offers up.
