48 Artisanal Meat Innovations

From Alternative BBQ Sandwiches to Curated Meat Boxes

— September 21, 2017 — Lifestyle
These artisanal meat innovations range from alternative BBQ sandwiches to curated meat boxes. While examples like Farmison & Co. -- a subscription that changes its monthly offerings according to what's fresh and local -- appeal to both budding and experienced chefs, others like the Three Jerks' Filet Mignon Beef snacks are ideal for those seeking to enjoy a dose of protein on the go.

Other artisanal meat innovations include spray-on BBQ sauces, and dry aging rubs that take the taste of any carnivore dish to new heights. For meat lovers with a sense of humor, products like meat-scented candles and even meat-flavored teas are a hit, transforming unexpected products with smokey scents and flavor profiles.

DIY steak kits and meaty savory snacks round off this list and speak to consumers' newfound appreciation for handcrafted, and premium meat products.
