WILLIAMSBURG-A new butcher shop will open on Second Street in The Edge District this fall. It will be the only butcher shop in Williamsburg.

The owners of Two Drummers Smokehouse in Toano announced on August 14 plans to open Two Drummers Butcher & BBQ Provisions in October.

The butcher shop will offer hand cut proteins from choice to Prime. The shop will specialize in Certified Angus Beef and Prairie Fresh Pork, and will also carry barbeque sauce, seasonings, fuels, and other supplies. The shop will also include a tasting station.

The goal is for Two Drummers Butcher & BBQ Provisions to open on October 1 ahead of the holiday season to give patrons a chance to also preorder turkeys for gatherings. Smoked turkeys will be available at the Two Drummers Smokehouse while fried turkeys will be available at the butcher shop. Ham and lamb will also be available.

Owners and brothers Jon Wade and Jason Wade, who both used to play drums in the Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and Drums Corps, first opened Two Drummers Smokehouse nine years ago.

Two Drummers Butcher & BBQ Provisions will be located at 118 Second Street, the site of the former 6 Crabs Seafood. The seafood shop quietly closed a few months ago.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
