The Grilladelic Trail Part 1. The Butchers

“What a kid I got, I told him about the birds and the bee and he told me about the butcher and my wife.”

Rodney Dangerfield quotes (American Comedian, 1921-2004)

Kingmas on Plainfield. My go-to store.  Top sirloin, fresh sausages, smoked porkchops, boneless turkey breasts…the list goes on.  Custom orders are welcome.  Ask for Dave or Derek.  Both Grilladelic friends.


Van Balls on Plainfield. Old school.  Cash or check only.  Usually have skirt and flat iron steaks in the cooler.


Storeys in Cedar. Friend Aaron Kamphuis recommends.  Good enough for me.

Sobies Meat in Walker. Damn the Smokin’ Scotsmen! (They are a tough team to beat on the KCBS circuit) Nice meat market and the owner is the saxophonist in Mid Life Crisis.

Montellos in Holland Previously reviewed by Grilladelic.

Birds Farm Meats- Howard City Mythical reputation.

The Grist Mill in Cannonsburg Don and Gordie.  One of the few places with authentic tri-tip in the cooler.

Dave Delski’s Prime Meats Never been here, but multiple recommendations and a good story (posted on their website)

I've had a misspent adulthood. Too much time grilling and barbecuing.

    Might be fun to do a video tour of these great establishments! Would like to learn what the owner of each believes is their own competitive advantage.

    Play-by-play on the brisket today?!
