Memorial Day has come and gone; it’s officially barbecue season. If you’re carnivorously inclined, consider visiting a neighborhood butcher shop before your next cookout. Here’s a selection (admittedly incomplete):

Bob’s Quality Meats

You can buy your whole season’s worth of meat in economical bundles at Bob’s, 4861 Rainier Ave. S., Seattle (206-725-1221 or bobsqualitymeats.com).

The Swinery

The West Seattle purveyor, which specializes in local and sustainable cuts of meat, also has an eat-in menu, featuring pulled pork sandwiches, burgers and BLTs, at 3207 California Ave. S.W. (206-932-4211 or swinerymeats.com).

Don & Joe’s

This family-run business grew out of a meat-cutting shop that started in Pike Place Market in 1906. How Seattle is that? 85 Pike St. (206-682-7670 or donandjoesmeats.com).

Golden Steer Choice Meats

One house specialty here is homemade Italian sausage, made with wine and garlic. 15255 N.E. Bel Red Road, Bellevue (425-746-1910 or goldensteer.net).

A & J Meats and Seafood

Like many of the city’s best butcher shops, A & J has been operating for decades. It’s so old-school, it doesn’t even have (or need) a website. 2401 Queen Anne Ave. N., Seattle (206-284-3885).
