Butcher in Central NJ?

Barth's in New Providence is great for the store-made cold cuts and dogs. I get my chickens from a local farm. I get the "usual cuts" from either Wegman's or the local butcher.

But I'd like to find a place where I can get things like veal sweetbreads, kidneys, game birds, suet, pigs feet, caul fat... without trekking into NYC.

I can understand why every butcher dosen't keep the variety (fun) meats on hand. But isn't there even one around who has more than the usual steaks, roasts, and ground beef?

By the way, some supermarkets which cater to ethnic communities have more of this kind of thing, but I've wondered about the quality...any feedback is appreciated.

  1. Have you tried Chester Meats in Chester? I bet Lou and the boys would get you anything you want!

    1. Not quite sure what you mean by central Jersey. A lot of central Jersey discussion will be found on the Mid-Atlantic board.

      In any case, here's a thread from about three months ago that gives a number of suggestions. I don't know how many of these places meet your criteria.

      I believe there are some older threads that have also discussed this issue so you might try a search.
