Douglas County OKs Permit for Specialty Meat Shop

KSAL StaffAugust 13, 2015

Douglas County commissioners have approved a permit for a specialty meat shop despite opposition from Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and others.

Commissioners approved the conditional use permit Wednesday for Lawrence chef Brian Strecker, who says his new shop, called The Burning Barrel, would process locally raised livestock into hams, sausages and other cuts of meat.

Several residents said they worried the shop would pose fire, odor and health hazards. Kobach owns a structure near where Strecker’s shop would be, and said he didn’t want his children to grow up downwind from the shop.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that others who spoke in favor of the shop vouched for Strecker’s work ethic and professional skills.

Strecker says his shop would process no more than four hogs a week.
