Do you start to salivate at the first whiff of burgers on the grill? Just in time for ever-tempting Fourth of July backyard barbecues, here is a guide to local purveyors of gourmet meats around Westchester County.

Battaglia Brothers

138 North Ave, New Rochelle; 914.633.3382

For 40 years, this family-owned and -operated meat market has been known in the neighborhood as THE place for steak, particularly club steak, prime rib, and London broil. Pork chops are also a fan favorite, as well as house-made sausage that can be enjoyed sweet, hot, with cheese and parsley, or fashioned from chicken instead of pork.

The Butcher’s Fancy

961 McLean Ave, Yonkers; 914.237.8260

With good humor, Irish charm, and serious butchering “chops,” County Leitrim’s Oliver Charles has been providing Old Country delectables to Westchesterites for three-plus decades, specializing in Irish bacon and sausage, burgers, and all manner of steak. Top sellouts include homemade pork and leek sausage and burgers with Irish bacon and Irish cheddar, along with the Irish spiced burger, flavored with marinara, onion, and seasoning.

Cole’s Market

2147 Albany Post Rd, Montrose; 914.737.7737

Spanning three generations and more than 100 years, this local bastion of fine meats and seafood is famous for its burgers and steaks, and a standout for its 10 varieties of sausage made on premises and without preservatives, including broccoli and cheddar, sundried tomato and basil, and jalapeño chicken. Other specialties for the grill run the gamut from meat or seafood shish kebabs to marinated steaks and fresh shrimp.

Crisfield’s Prime Meats

61 Purchase St, Rye; 914.967.0152

With a strong and proud emphasis on New York- and American-raised organic meats — which can be ground to order for some of the most outstanding burgers your barbecue will ever host — this old-school butcher offers an expansive array of Prime beef, pork including fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs, organic veal, lamb, and sausage, and top-quality chicken from organic producers like Bell & Evans and D’Artagnan.

Fiamma Pork Store

107 Halstead Ave, Harrison; 914.630.1452

Italian for “flame,” Fiamma is led by Doug Tucci, a transplanted Bronx restaurateur, who has been turning up the heat in Harrison for the past five years. The shop focuses on Prime beef, ribeye, porterhouse, Pennsylvania chicken and pork, and homemade classic Italian sausage that comes hot, sweet, or without fennel; call ahead for weekend orders of cheese and parsley sausage rings. Pro tip: Add a little zing to your barbecue thing with a house-jarred rub of brown sugar pork or espresso.
