Meat Style & Story Meat Processing Our Secret of Quality

Montreal Smoked Meat Style & Story

Traditionally, the dry curing process commenced with salt and spices being rubbed on the surfaces of briskets which were then piled into wooden barrels where they remained marinating in their own juices for a period of 12 to 20 days depending on the thicknesses and being turned over a couple of times. The cured briskets were then hung up on racks which were placed in a smokehouse and cooked for six to nine hours depending on brisket size. Their progress was checked occasionally. This form of cooking caused a 25 percent loss in volume but resulted in the unique quality and flavor of Montreal-style smoked meat.

In early 1990’s Greeks who migrated to Canada added more spices and flavors to the smoked meat cooking process that resulted in the unique quality and flavour of Montreal-style smoked meat along with the fine and Inferior Cut before serving it to customers.

Montreal Smoked Meat Processing

The actual genesis was the arrival in 1884 of Aaron Sanft from Yassi, Romania. He became Montreal’s first Smoked Meat butcher.

Historians believe that modern day smoked meat originated in Turkey and was brought to Romania by invading Turkish armies. Romanian butchers improved the curing process resulting in an exquisitely tender delicacy.
