At Cason's Fine Meats pay homage to BBQ’s Black roots
Come to the diverse neighborhood abutting Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. for smoked ribs from Cason's Fine Meats. “You taste my barbecue, ribs or chicken, my natural meat, it sells itself -- you’ll come back,” says butcher, meat master and namesake of this small shop, Theotis Cason.
Oregon-sourced raw provisions are available to cook at home. But. You’re already here! And Black pitmasters are a culinary tradition. Pay homage to barbecue’s African American roots by letting Cason and his crew do the ‘cue. Vibemap Tip: Pick up as much homemade sausage as your grill can cook. Don't forget order some of the homemade barbecue sauce.
