Our Take on Charcuterie

Charcuterie: A Definition

If you’re looking for a simple definition of charcuterie, it is derived from the French words “chair,” meaning flesh and the word “cuit,” meaning cooked. So, simply put, charcuterie means cooked meat. But is that all it is? We don’t think so. In fact, we’re convinced charcuterie is so much more than just “cooked meat.”

Charcuterie was most likely used as a way to preserve meat before electric refrigeration became a thing. Now that we have refrigeration, why do we bother with the process of making charcuterie? The answer is simple: flavor. We do charcuterie because it is delicious. At Keller Crafted Meats, we use non-GMO meat to create delicious gourmet sausages. Shop our unique crafted meats today.

Keller Crafted Meats Takes Charcuterie to a New Level

Keller Crafted Meats takes our craft seriously. We are strong believers in using the entire animal without sacrificing a bit of the highly-nutrient dense, flavorful meat you’ve come to expect from us.

We craft our charcuterie so our ultra-premium quality meat is the star of the show. We select high-quality organic and non-GMO ingredients and use only a small amount of sugar, and in some cases, no sugar at all. We provide a complete line of charcuterie products, including hams, sausages, hot dogs, bacon, deli meats and jerky.

Below, we've listed some of the most popular products you can find in our online store.

Bacon

Our bacon is Non-GMO Project verified and never contains corn or soy. Our uncured maple bacon is brined with a mixture of sea salt and real organic maple syrup, then hickory smoked with no added nitrites. Our bacon is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Sausage & Hot Dogs

JerkyAt Keller Crafted Meat, we offer a wide variety of sausage, including sugar-free options. One of our personal favorites is our sugar-free “Good Morning” sausage. It’s chock full of certified non-GMO pork and organic spices, so you know it’s got some good flavor. This is a sausage which will be sure to delight your friends and family of all ages.

Everyone loves beef jerky, so we wanted to give the fans what they’re looking for while giving it a little twist. Our beef jerky hot beef candy is an extremely popular option for the beef jerky lover in your life. Or, you know… yourself.
