Meat At Billy's
Customers come from far and wide to shop at Ashgrove’s Meat at Billy’s – and for good reason. The award-winning butcher is second to none when it comes to quality of meat, diverse range of products, knowledgeable staff and good old-fashioned service.
Since opening his first store in Ashgrove in 2009, Billy has not only built a staunchly loyal customer base and something of a mini-meat-empire but established his business as something of a community pillar, lending support to all kinds of local groups and causes.
More than a butcher shop, Meat at Billy’s stocks a wide range of compatible foodstuffs and products, including local cellar door Clovely Estate Wines. Some, like the JackaLope Slow Food rubs, are made by one of Billy's butchers and even the honey is produced from beehives on the rooftop of the shop.
Otherwise all products sold at the shop are carefully sourced from local independent producers and small scale farms.
Billy’s butchers are big fans of and experts on and the low and slow-cooked BBQ method of meat cooking (charcoal/smoked), so here’s the place to find American style cut ribs including pork belly and St Louis ribs as well as must try Wagyu sirloin rib fillets and Cape Grim Beef Short Ribs. You can also buy bags of smoking chips and charcoal to ensure they are cooked to perfection.
Dry aged beef is another house specialty, with Meat at Billy’s latest creation the dry aged beef burger. Popular with punters are the exotic sausages, such as North African Lamb Merguez, Truffled Pork & Porcini Mushroom, Thai Green Chicken Curry or Lamb, Fig and Walnut.
