The Fuelling Brothers


As brothers, we have a fondness for good food, good friends, good wine, good cheese, and occasionally good cigars. We welcome you to our butcher shop; for you to enjoy the same sort of things we enjoy. As we grew up in Michigan, we were surrounded by a huge family that loved to eat. We loved the Sunday dinners around the dining room table with meat fresh from the grill and oven. Since we fondly recall those days, we decided to put a huge dining table in the middle of our butcher shop. Come join us as we open our table to you, your family, and your friends.

Our love of food, especially fine meats, began with our childhood spent going to the local Dutch butcher shops in Western Michigan. We watched the butcher greet our parents like family, we watched as they made fresh sausages, we watched as they carved our roasts for the holiday table. We were fascinated, and always dreamed of opening our own butcher shop. As we grew older, our love of wine increased and we decided that our shop should carry some great wine from the great state of California. We have met some of our dearest friends in the wine business and we carry their wine to honor them.

Over the years, we grew to love the southern style of barbecue, with that in mind, we have attached smokers to our shop. This allows us to offer some of the best, slowed cooked foods that you will find in our neighborhood. With the development of Darnell's BBQ menu, we now offer great entrees that we are very proud to serve. Our Pulled Pork sandwich is the most delicious sandwich this side of Michigan.

So come to The Corner Butcher Shop, see what we are making, taste what is in our smokers & let us make your meal time more "family-er".
