Louie’s Finer Meats

Louis Muench of Louie’s Finer Meats in Cumberland Wisconsin was elected president of the American Association of Meat Processors during the group’s convention in Lexington, Kentucky recently. Mr Muench is a member of the National Cured Meats Hall of Fame. I will consider my life complete if I can somehow, someday become a member of that august Hall.

The American Association of Meat Processors Cured Meat Competition awarded its Grand Champion trophy to Hermann Wurst Haus for its German-style bologna last week. The shootout took place in central Kentucky where the appellation ‘bologna’ sure raised some eyebrows. Lexington is deep in boloney country.

Bootleg charcuterie has always been a thing in the US where the government regulates all forms of meat processing. The Cleveland Scene lays out what it takes to go completely legal. It’s not cheap.
