Best Use of a Hashtag: #ladybutchers (Saucisson)

Short, to-the-point and impossibly factual, #ladybutchers tells the social media world that those delicious meats you're about to jam down your pie hole were hand-crafted with love by female butchers Melissa Khoury and Penny Barend of Saucisson. Like true ladies, these gals bitch, moan, drink and cuss a blue streak with about as much enthusiasm as they reserve for turning heritage-breed pork into mind-blowing charcuterie. Whether you know it or not, many of the best meat boards ordered at bistros around town feature smoked, cured and potted meats from these bad-ass butcher babes. Check them out at farmers markets around town.
