G'day guys,

Off on a trip at the end of June - looking at the group resupplying with cryovac meat in Alice - not because meat from home won't last the distance, but just from a space in the fridge (more room for cold cans ;-) perspective.

Any butchers you would recommend in Alice?
Cheers,

Ivan

Woolworths. Just ask the butcher behind the meat counter and they will do it for you in an hour or two.

Woolies,

They may do it, but you wouldn't want to use their meat, it's crap. Everywhere

GO to a Independant butcher, after you have tried their meat.
We are cryovacing out own meats, but cooking them first, and putting the slices into family packs. All we then do is drop the pouch into boiling water. (the whole exercise is quicker)

Gday
Milner Meats on the corner of Milner road and Gason St will cryovac and they are about the best butcher in town.

Another vote for Milner Butchers. Try their kangaroo and camel while you are at it. Also (surprisingly) have some of the best oysters ever.

Camel? Hard to describe. Not a strong taste. If you like beef, you'll be OK. No idea what cut, just ask Milners. Especially good in curry. Funny story. First time we bought camel from Milners, it was unbelevably tough. We cooked it for hours. Then cooked it again. Flavour great, but toughest meat I have ever tried. Next time back at Milners they asked how I had liked the camel, so I told them. To cut a long story short, my wife had picked up a pack of camel from the wrong fridge. We had eaten the offcuts for dogmeat. They gave us another pack for free and we took care to take it from the right fridge (our fault, not theirs, the fridges were marked accurately. My wife still blushes over this story.)

Charbray Meats in Yeperenye Shopping Centre (Woolworths centre but not Woolworths butcher) will do it for small fee. Good butcher, good local meat. Can't go past them IMHO.

Have to get our supplies there near end of June for the GRR Trip during school holidays. Love the Territory 4 week mid year system of holidays.

Having said that Milner Meats are okay too, just not in centre of town.

Cheers
