Real Butchers in Baltimore

Any suggestions for really good butchers (not just "meat cutters") in Baltimore. I'm familiar with the various markets and some of the more higher end places (e.g. Ceriello's,Eddies). What I'm looking for is kind of an old fashion butcher shop.

  1. The one I use is Laurel Meat Market in Laurel (of course). It's not "in" Baltimore, but they're not that far, and they're definitely an old fashioned butcher shop, with really excellent meat and reasonable prices.

    1. There's Trueth's in Oella (Catonsville) but I haven't been there in years.

        THanks a lot. If by chance you have a phone number for Trueth's or Truths - please feel free to pass it on. I tried looking it up in but didn't find it.

      2. It ain't Baltimore, but there is Bullocks in Westminster

        1. I'm curious about this too. I'm looking to bbq a beef brisket, and I've heard that you want the flat and the point, etc. Where can I go for this?

          1. i just also posted this under a request for veal bones, but there's a farm about 25 minutes north off 83

            they don't do their own butchering, but you can special order any kind of cut you want and it will be fresh when you pick it up. they also have a bunch of fresh and frozen available if you don't order. all from humanely (seriously) raised animals. they have pork, beef, chicken, veal, etc. i got a chicken last weekend that was so fantastic.
