Karl Ehmer in Patchogue has proffered fine American and traditional European meats for more than 40 years, and current owner Steven Fahner draws on his southern German roots and a lineage of butchering expertise dating back more than five generations. Starving carnivores can curb recurring dreams about running through fields of deli meat with a variety of made-to-order sandwiches ($4.50–$5.50), enjoying fresh-cut turkey, smoked ham, pastrami, or liverwurst piled between two pieces of rye or shoveled in by the fistful. An array of authentic german sausages ($7.99/lb.) such as bratwurst, knockwurst, and weisswurst rest alongside USDA Prime steaks such as filet mignon ($21.99/lb.), porterhouse (12.99/lb.), or rib eye ($12.99/lb.) and Karl Ehmer's famous smoked hams ($5.99/lb. bone-in; $9.99/lb. boneless). The shop's sauerbraten special packs in 3.5 pounds of sauerbraten with marinade, a dozen ready-to-cook dumplings, a 24-ounce jar of red cabbage, instructions for cooking, and proper etiquette for licking one’s chops ($39.99).
