The Butcher Shop
Before we were a grocery store, we were a small, community butcher shop.
The craft of butchering has been a foundational trade for many of our leaders at Freson Bros.
We have over 62 years of experience in the meat industry; experience at this stature cannot be replicated easily. We believe in skill and cutting. We believe butchers should know the source of their meat. And we believe in meat that is raised and produced in Alberta. That's why you will only find Alberta Beef, Pork, and Chicken in our fresh meat counter. Simply put, we believe in the power of really great meat.
////// Made Only at Freson Bros. //////
Banj's Smokehouse was born out of tradition and heritage. Back in the day, meat in a smokehouse meant families were gathering, which is a value we hold very near and dear to our hearts. We also value hard work and don't take shortcuts.
All of our Banj's Smokehouse products are made from scratch, smoked in-store the old fashioned way with real hardwood. Choose from our selection of jerky, pepperoni, bacon, garlic coil and smoked dog bones. Available in both traditional and a few unique flavour profiles, the hard part will be deciding which one is your favourite!
Oh, and for the record, there is an Uncle Banj whom the Smokehouse is named after!
Our In-store Made Sausage
Did you know the word sausage is derived from the Latin word salsus which means 'something salted'? Our signature Ivan's handmade sausages are delicious and great served on their own or as an addition to pasta, meatloaf, and casseroles. Our in-store sausage-meisters start with the freshest cuts of Alberta Pork, add cured bacon and ham, and finish with signature seasonings that create our legendary original German and sweet German sausage. Available in traditional links as well as a larger coil package.
Just like all good things, you won't be able to eat just one!
