- Dave really knows meat!
- Dave really loves talking to his customers
- Dave has what seems like his entire family working in the butcher shop
- Dave is Dutch, and proud of it!
- Dave has Celiac Disease, just like my wife, and has tonnes of extra gluten free goodies at his shop, which is great for me Gluten Free Edmonton blog.
Every time I go to Ben's Meats on a Saturday the place is jam packed and his family is working hard getting orders out. But that doesn't stop Dave from walking with a customer around the shop talking about all the amazing stuff his carries, or some of the deals he has. Or heck, even taking in suggestions from customers. As I suggested he should sell his smoked brisket more often, and he has, and sells out pretty quickly when he does!
If Dan were still here today, I would have loved to take him to meet Dave, they would have got along just fine, and I'm sure talk food all day long! Dave is full of great tips on food preparation. One of which I just shared on Facebook about the best way to cut and warm up a brisket.
If you live in Edmonton, or ever visit, be sure to visit Dave at Ben's Meats! You won't regret it.
