Spending the morning at a meat market

 Last week I had a chance to work with SJ and Virginia Botha, owners of the Carnivore Market in Downtown Franklin, TN.   Most of our work involves kitchen and furniture work but I had the opportunity to build five enclosures that are to be fitted with racks for drying meat for this amazing shop right next to Handy Hardware.   One of their specialties is biltong, which is basically a South African verson of beef jerky...but in my opinion it is far better than beef jerky.  

The store is expanding as they add more capacity to dry meats and they have also just added a SMOKER.   Carnivore Market has plans to make their own bacon in house and begin to smoke their own sausage and other products.  

For meat lovers out in Middle TN, you must stop in at the Carnivore Market.   My family has become big fans of the biltong and boerewors (just go buy some).   The ribeyes from locally raised cattle are fantastic as well.   

                            Renovation in progress.  Glass doors and drying biltong coming soon...
