Dittmer's photo tour - "A Destination Meat Encounter"

rworange | Mar 29, 2006 12:00 AM

Dr. Biggles recently visited Dittmer's Meat Market in Mountain View and even got Dittmer hisself to give him a tour of the back room where the cold cuts are made and meat is smoked.

He did a first rate write up and there's pictures of the shop and meat and how it is made.

Just a great review.

He also documented his visit to Uncle Frank's which is near by. So if you would like to see a few photos of that much-discussed Q spot, here you go ...

I had an excellent Easter ham from Dittmer's last year and the Good Doctor has pictures of a hook with freshly smoked hams hanging from it.

Besides the shop and the back room, there are pictures of
- belly bacon
- garlic sausages
- weisswurst
- Ukranian sausage

I almost licked the screen the meat looked so tasty. Anyway I have his permission to link to the site and inspire you all with Dittmer's delicousness.

Just a reminder that Dittmer will smoke any meat or fish you bring there. Also, they will custom-make sausages to your specifications. There is a minimum order. If you don't have a recipe for some exotic sausage, Dittmer will use one of their own.

One of my favorite cold cuts at Dittmer's is the Chicken Schinekenwurst which is slightly peppery with a touch of cinnamon.
