USA cuts for Gold Coast / Tweed heads

Post by Smokey » Sat Apr 13, 2013 6:29 pm

Ive known about this bloke for a few years but never really shopped there on the account I thought he was to expensive.
I was wrong. :oops:
Let me introduce Jack Sprats.
http://jackspratsbutchery.com.au/
His name is Paul Newson and was the opps manager for Vic's meats prior to starting up "Jack Sprats" on the Tweed in 2008.
So this cat knows his meat. 8)
He knows all the full and proper Boston butts, Brisket packers, Tri tips etc.
He will make sausage as you want them.
I ordered pure beef and pure pork snags with no filler, Preservatives, Not too much salt or spice.
Best Bangalow pork snag Ive ever had bar none. Dark pork and tasted like it came from the forequarter.

He takes orders through the week and opens his shop on Saturdays.
He can do group orders (You order under the Aussie bbq forum and pay on pickup) , for US Boston butts for way south of $10 kg.
Its either Bangalow sweet pork or RSPA cert free range.
Today I saw some really nice looking and trimmed USA pork ribs for $12.99 KG.
Im going to ask Paul to join the forum as I recon he is the best butcher Ive seen in many years.
He even has a seppo butcher working for him. Today he was out the front BBQing samples. I had a BOMB that was spinach & feta wrapped in chicken fillet then wrapped in bacon. Nicely grilled on a Weber 220 :) .

If anyone is interested? pipe up here and we will make an order.

Note; Im not commercially involved or affiliated. Just great meat :lol:

Wish I was up that way, from what you say, this guy seem to have his ducks in a row. Providing samples for the punters means he really stands behind his meat and cooking it on a BBQ shows he is fair dinkum.
Some of the butchers around this way could take a few lessons from him, we have one that sells what seems to be reconstitued leather as aged beef.

Your right Capt, I was blown away, The Butcher out front cooking would not let me in the door until I tried all the various sausage and goodies.
Ive got a son "On the spectrum" and he instantly knew what sausage to make for my family :wink:

There is no deal so to speak. But if we can get a few blokes interested in a brisket and a full boston butt, Just makes it cheaper for us all.

Hopefully he will join up and he can speak for himself

Unfortunately too far away from me, I don't like the idea of cryovaced meat being sent around the country unless it can be gauranteed of shipping in a dedicated vehicle and everyone knows and does their job properly. Too many chances of something going wrong and it only has to happen once.

Cheers

Captain
Just to add to this capt,
When I was there today I noticed a couple that seemed to be buying for a dinner party or something like that.
They seemed to be having fun doing the shoping and talking the to butchers.
What ever they were interested in, the cook out front gave them taste tests so they totaly knew what they were going to serve up to there guests. They kept running in and out tasting what was instore. That just blew me away.
He sure bloody has got his ducks in a row.
Now to give him a MUMS test :lol:
Ill get my mum to place an order and she will sort him out,,,, Or me :oops: :lol:
