A corner meat market of The Gathering Shops presents itself as a cut above others.
Golden Gate Meats is ready to serve Naples customers some of the finest USDA cuts. Beef, pork, chicken, and specialty items are just the beginning for Golden Gate Meats, where the Rev. Glenn Gadson, serves up his expert advice on barbecue along with sage advice on life, too.
“I’m feeding the spirit as well as the body,” says Gadson, who grew up in South Florida and knows the secrets of preparing each of his cuts he serves to his customers. Open for just a month, Reverend Gadson currently has a steady flow of customers to his marvelous meat market.
“When we moved here, we looked around Naples, and we noticed there was no meat market with a family plan.”
So Gadson took the bull by the horns. He carved out a business plan to open a meat market which catered to customer’s carnivorous taste buds, as well as provide affordable prices through low-priced family plans. “Our hottest seller so far, is our Georgia sausage. We just can’t keep enough of it. Georgia sausage has smoked meat in the sausage, where most sausage just has ground up meat inside.
“We also feature smoked neck bones, T-bones, and steaks,” says Gadson.
The business venture is smoking hot for Gadson so far.
“Other people have higher prices, and I have a lower overhead that affords me the ability to give cheaper prices directly to the customer,” Gadson explains.
Certainly Gadson has some of the thickest slab bacon Naples has to offer. Slab bacon is a flavorful addition to breakfast, but can be a main ingredient to honey baked bean recipes, and hot bacon flambé spinach salad dressings. Slab bacon wrapped around skewered shrimp on the barbeque also renders delicious results.
Even if you are a barbecue newbie, Gadson can assist you in learning to become a barbecue master. His goal is to provide your main ingredients, with advice on how to prep, marinate, and add kick to your barbecue flavor.
“Customers can come in, and we customize and talk to you about just what you want. We can offer a whole hog, or half a cow. Whatever you want, I can cut,” he says.
Golden Gate Meats assures families here, that the secret to a better meal, is in the superior advice of the meat manager. Reverend Gadson offers the highest quality cuts, not to mention low prices of the main ingredients for recipes. For Golden Gate Meats, only the best quality choices will do.
