Owners Chris and Kate Conger, of the San Antonio, Texas Southern Kitchen BBQ restaurant and Food Truck “ The Smoke Shack”, and Live Music venue Soul Full Sunday Brunch spot “The Pigpen Neighborhood Bar”, open a third sibling to their chain of establishments on August 10th, 2018. The new location, a local Meat Market and Butcher Shop, aims to stand out by joining the “Slow Foods” movement, a global advocacy that advances the concept of good, clean and fair food by preserving traditional and regional cuisines that were becoming extinct, and promoting the propagation of plants, seeds and livestock of local ecosystems. With this mentality, the Smoke Shack Meat Market aims to give back more to local farmers in Texas by sourcing 90% of products locally. With the exception of cheeses and wines, products will be almost exclusively Texas.
Smoke Shack Meat Market wants to foster a culture of supporting Texas Farmers and Ranchers enabling them to offer guests the best, freshest and highest quality of products available in the South Texas area.
Some of our Farmers are as follows.
● Peeler Ranch - Wagyu Beef
● Hudspeth River Ranch - Lamb
● Dean & Peeler Meat Works - Beef, Prime Grade
● Parker Creek Ranch - Beef, Grass fed
● Legend Ranch - Red Wattle Pork

Peaceful Pork is raised naturally in pastures that stretch across the rolling mesquite savanna of South Texas, some 50 miles north of Corpus Christi in.
The topography is perfect for pigs. Natural foragers, they enjoy rooting – their instinct is to dig up the grass with their noses – and exploring. And that is exactly how Peaceful Pork pigs spend their days, grazing and digging the earth beneath shade trees, or cooling off in one of the wallows that stud the wide pastures.
Peaceful Pork’s heritage pigs are a combination of “old world” Large Blacks and distinctive Texas breeds. The herd features genetics of classic British pigs, such as Berkshires, for optimum marbling, and Texas original breeds like Red Wattles.
Occasionally, ambitious feral hogs break into the pastures and add their genetics to the mix (At the ranch, this is referred to as “Free Love”!), adding to the personality and the flavor!
