I don't think you'll have much luck with Cape Grim unless you're willing to head into the Vic market and go to Sardes.

As for black onyx you won't be able to get any in Melbourne at all. There is a supplier that sells to restaurants but can't sell the odd one or two that don't get picked up by restaurants.

As for pork you've got the option of Preston Market, Brunswick Market or Vic Market.

I haven't spotted anything good at Preston last time I went, Vic Market has a few good butchers for Pork and Brunswick Market only has one butcher but pork is pretty good quality last time I tried.

Alternatives are to head into Costco if you're thinking Ribs or boneless pork shoulders.

Cheers

i know Simply FreeRange in rosanna does cape grim.. but getting there after work is kinda hard as im in thomastown. Pork ribs i usually get from the big butcher in thomastown as theyre always consistant on quality. not so much with beef or pork shoulders though.

Cheers for that BigBadGus!

Defiantly 100% go and see Scott at Simply Free Range butchers in Rosanna. He carries all the slow and low cuts. Cape Grim brisket as well as Huon Valley briskets and beef ribs at really decent prices (beef ribs 14.99/KG) (Plus pork shoulders, tri tip, pork belly etc etc etc)

Im pretty sure they deliver to but if you cant visit the shop at leadt ring scott first -
121 Lower Plenty Rd
Rosanna VIC 3084
(03) 9459 3310

They have all diferent types of smoking woods and carry charcoal as well.

I think Simply Free Range stopped selling Cape Grim in favour of their own meat grown at their Koallah Farm. Simply Free Range is on FaceBook, check if they still selling it before heading down there.

I've never seen any good pork ribs there, baby backs or spares? I'll have to pay them a visit soon and see what they've got.
