CLOSED FRIDAY but OPEN SATURDAY
Let us help you celebrate your Christmas this year.
We have a great range of cold meats with traditional black forest (double smoked) bone-in hams (half or whole), oven-roasted turkey breasts, sliced hams as well as sliced pastrami, prosciutto, pancetta, silverside, salami and more.
We'll have rolled turkey breasts with a choice of stuffing... Cranberry & Chestnut, Sage & Onion, Apricot & Macadamia... or just have it plain and add your own creation. There'll be fresh ducks and fresh turkeys available Christmas week. There'll be turduckens available to order (turkey with a duck and chicken centre). Talk to either the staff at Taringa or Sumner to place your order and let us know if there's any special requests you'd like us to carry out.
It's great to get feed back from our customers, and a big thank you to those that have dropped us a line over the years telling us of our part in their culinary successes. This week I received a shout out from Holger Gronwall, a long time customer and ex-Minnesota resident who gets the biggest turkeys we can find every year for both his Thanks Giving and Christmas feasts. Here's how he went with a pic of the done-to-perfection bird
"We hold our Thanks Giving a week early for simplicity. The turkey was a huge success! The turkey, ham and all the side dishes fed 26 this year. I even get the wild rice for the stuffing all the way from Minnesota. I was told it was the best turkey yet and this time we had left overs..."
Sharing a special diner with family and friends is more than the sum of the tasty morsels that make up the meal. A turkey for Thanks Giving or Christmas requires a deft hand with the baster, the timer and all the trimmings. Everyone knows the effort the chef goes to to get it right. That's why we do it once a year (except Holger, he does it twice !!), and that's why everyone knows how special it is.
Really, really well done Holger.

Through the setup of our Taringa store, we have continued to impress and build our relationship with the biggest meat processor in Australia, JBS Swift. In fact, the GM was so impressed with the overall concept of our store that he flew his plant managers in from around the country, NSW, Victoria as well as Queensland, to show them how their flagship products have been showcased.
So why was the GM of JBS Swift so impressed by our Taringa store?
We’re so excited to open our new store and we’re absolutely rapped with the response from the Taringa residents already. We’re looking forward to becoming a staple store amongst this local hub and delivering our top quality meat to many new customers!
Keep an eye out for our new sign on Moggill Rd coming soon. We’re hoping once it’s up and running we’ll be able to reach a wider demographic attracting more locals, and even more from further afield.
The secret’s out! Our factory outlet located next to our Sumner Park processing room is now open to the public.
The shop offers a range of traditional and food service cuts, as well as a range of game and poultry.
We are now amidst a star at Hillman’s.
Brian made his debut into stardom on the Channel Seven News a couple of weeks ago.
The segment was about the best beef in Australia, most notably Wagyu, and our Taringa store was chosen for some content shots. How cool?!
Our relationship with JBS Swift, the biggest meat processor in Australia, continues to flourish. So much so that the big guys have chosen to sponsor us with a humongous sign over our Taringa store.
Here’s a picture of the billboard over the top of our neighbours, Naughty But Nice.
It was said that King Charles the Second of England after returning from a royal hunt in the forest surrounding Friday Hall was particularly hungry. Upon seeing a loin of beef, dripping with juices fresh from the ovens, he exclaimed, “A noble joint! By St. George, it shall have a title!”
Thus, the loin became Sir Loin.
