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.
