Island Bay Butchery has a reputation for producing world class Smallgoods. Our knowledge and techniques come with years of experience in both New Zealand and Europe. Here’s a selection of the Island Bay Butchery award winning smoked or cured Smallgoods.
Kassler is a traditional German product, and is made by curing a boneless pork in brine, herbs and spices and then a light smoking. This creates a very lean, highly flavoured piece of pork similar to ham. It’s lovely on crackers with cheese and chutney.
Inspired by the French Boudin Blanc, this sausage is a combination of chicken and pork meats and cream. It has a lovely texture and is generally served in France on special occasions like Christmas.
From Poland, the hunter sausage is very similar to the smoked Kielbasa. Because the smoke preserved the sausage, it was the ideal food to take on hunting expeditions. If you’re hunting for a delicious smoked sausage this is the one to try.
Hams (gluten free)
Made from 100% free roaming New Zealand pork legs providing a huge advantage to making a quality ham. The special Island Bay Butchery curing recipe, the amount of time in the smokehouse and steam cooking all combine for a delicious moist ham. You can choose ham on the bone, boneless hams plus champagne hams to order.
