Best Place to Get a Leg Up on the Competition
Dale's Exotic Game Meats
1961 W. 64th Ave.

Take a wok on the wild side. For almost thirty years, Dale Beier has run the most exotic meat market this side of Shotgun Willie's. He's got your rattlesnake, your game birds, your venison, your turkey jerky--along with suggested serving tips for all of his inventory, as well as a few critters he doesn't sell (yet). For black-footed ferret, for example, "cook it as you would a squirrel." Beier's butchering skill has even gained an international reputation--his preparation of a boneless leg of meat (which strips off even that silvery tissue) is now known worldwide as a "Denver leg." We'll shake one any time.
