The Meat Shop open for business in Commerce Twp.

A new, family-owned smoke meat shop is open for business in Commerce Township, operating out of a 120 year old historical building that was recently renovated. The Meat Shop smokes 300 lbs. of high quality meat each day, including Prime Creekstone Farms brisket that's only available to them and a BBQ facility located in Austin Texas, "Franklin Barbecue".
