Ryan Farr is the author of two defining books on the art of craft butchery: Whole Beast Butchery, and Sausage Making-The Definitive Guide.
Whole Beast Butchery demystifies the butchery process with 500 step-by-step photographs on breaking down beef, lamb, and pork. Included are master recipes for key cuts, as well as a primer on tools, techniques, and meat handling. This visual manual is the first to teach by showing exactly what butchers know, whether cooks want to learn how to turn the primal into familiar and special cuts or to simply want to identify everything in the case at the market.
Sausage Making is Farr’s master course for all skill levels, featuring an overview of tools and ingredients, step-by-step sausage-making instructions, more than 175 full-color technique photos, and 50 recipes for his favorite classic and contemporary links. This comprehensive, all-in-one manual welcomes a new generation of meat lovers and DIY enthusiasts to one of the most satisfying and tasty culinary crafts.
4505 Meats creates delicious, high-protein, chef-driven snacks from the finest quality meats available. Our melt-in-your-mouth Chicharrones and flavor-forward, crunchier Cracklins are sourced exclusively from sustainably-raised hogs, kettle-fried in lard, and seasoned using the finest spices available.
When it comes to our chicharrones, we have three delicious flavors to choose from. Whether you prefer our best-selling Classic Chili and Salt, Smokehouse BBQ which shares its seasoning blend with the pork rib rub at our flagship restaurant, or the spicy kick of the Jalapeño Cheddar, we’re sure you’ll love our crispy clouds of porkaliciousness. If you prefer our Cracklins — a more decadent, crunchier pork curly Q — choose from the lightly seasoned Sea Salt or the flavor-forward Spicy Green Chili and Lime.
