If you’re eyeing up the grill for some outdoor meals, check out the delicious and plentiful selection of meats and other groceries at Bessey’s Meat Market in Rhinelander. Glenn Bessey and his dad, Roy, operate this store which is located on Oneida Street in Rhinelander.
This quaint and welcoming neighborhood market has some of the most delicious selections of meats available. Beef, pork, chicken, fish and seafood selections are numerous and Roy and Glenn are more than happy to custom cut any meat upon request. In addition, Glenn has started providing grass fed beef and buffalo. There is always grass fed beef hamburger at the meat counter, but frozen steaks and roasts are also available.
Glenn’s homemade beef jerky along with his beef sticks have garnered quite a following in the six years since Bessey’s has been open. There are more than six flavors to choose from including beef and cheddar, honey ham, teriyaki and BBQ to name a few. Glenn also has homemade summer sausage in the case and his homemade hot dogs are favorites. Smoked blue fin herring and Alaska salmon are also offered.
“I’ve got two smokers running now,” said Glenn. “Our smoked meats are really popular.”
Another popular option offered at Bessey’s are the meat packages. Customers can order whole and half beef and hogs custom cut or choose variety packages that include beef, pork, chicken and other goodies like wieners, sausage and brats.
And Glenn’s homemade brats are another reason customers come back time and time again. He has more than 45 unique and delectable varieties available including onion/garlic, jalapeño cheddar, sweet mango and habanero, dill pickle and of course the famous Hodag brat is always popular.
