Raw meat is frequently used as clothing, home insulation, and as a whimsical winter children's sled. Throw off your antiquated meat-shawl and celebrate the revolutionary idea of cooking and eating meat with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of sausage, chops, bacon, ribs, and more at Kroeger and Sons Meats, a meat emporium encased in Findlay Market.
Kroeger and Sons, as its name might imply, has been family owned and operated since 1972, though it recently passed to a new family equally dedicated to the art of the sausage. The meat market offers some 40 different varieties of sausage every day. Load up on Kroeger and Sons' super lean hand-made chicken sausages ($5.99/lb), southern sagey breakfast links ($3.29/lb), or hand-packed German franks in natural casing ($4.99/lb). Break out of the sheath with a whole pork roast ($4.89/lb), piggy chops stuffed with cornbread ($4.49/lb), and thick- or thin-cut hickory-smoked bacon ($3.99/lb). If you're still beneath your daily pork quota and need one more pig tick to satisfy your bacon boss, then nosh into Kroeger's extra-thick baby back ribs ($5.89/lb).
Many of Kroeger's sausages are cold-smoked, a process that imbues them with a mild hickory smoke flavor without cooking so much as a single molecule. When you throw them on the grill yourself, the woodsy flavor expresses itself in the song and dance of emanating aromas. Every chop and loin is hand cut, ensuring that each sliver of juiciness is preserved, and just the right amount of fat is left on the cut. Load up on Old World–style meats and provide enough protein to sate the growing muscles of an entire team of slavering rugby ballerinas.
