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 more than 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.
