When you are planning a get-together this holiday season, think of Doreck’s! Whether you are having an outdoor barbecue or you want to make a roast for just the family, Doreck’s has got you covered. With a wide array of fresh meats they can provide you with steaks, roasts, briskets, their own beef jerky and more.

If you have been hunting this season, Doreck’s is also the place to bring your meat for processing. They have been processing deer meat for over 40 years, and still process only one deer at a time, ensuring no meat is ever mixed. Doreck’s can turn your meat into pan sausage, smoked sausage, steaks, roasts and many more cuts.

Doreck’s sausage is especially popular. Their own original recipe, the sausage comes in four flavors: regular, jalapeño, jalapeño and cheese, and hot. It is popular with cookouts, cook-offs and often purchased by organizations for events. It is also available in local grocery stores.

Doreck’s has also recently installed a new scrolling community bulletin board. This board will help customers and passers-by keep up with weekly specials as well as with what is going on with the Santa Fe Indians and other local organization.

At Doreck’s you can find an array of Rib eye steaks, T-bone steaks, sirloins, round steak, flat iron steak, chuck roast, cutlets, whole rib eyes, pork chops, country style pork ribs, pork spare ribs, hamburger, stew meat, fajita meat, sausage, jalapeño sausage, jalapeno and cheese sausage, pork pan sausage, boudin, summer sausage, lunch meats, cheddar (rat cheese), special cuts on request, chicken, freezer packs, hinds and half’s. Doreck’s is also the place to go for deer, live game and livestock processing.

Started in September 1972 by Jack and Nancy Doreck, Doreck’s Packing Co. has been providing the goods for many meals, cookouts and cook-offs over the last 22 years.

Since 1994, the family business has continued the tradition under the direction of Raymond and John Doreck with help from their sister, Laurie Hadley.

Doreck’s sells only USDA choice meats, which are a class above select meats that are typically sold in most stores. Even though the staff at Doreck’s sells a higher grade of meat, their prices are still very competitive.

The friendly and knowledgeable staff at Doreck’s strives to educate their customers about the meats they are purchasing. Customers should understand the difference between the choice meat and the select meat. Meat labeled choice grade has been fed longer and, therefore has more marbling resulting in more tenderness and flavor.

Doreck’s is state-inspected weekly to be sure that they are meeting strict guidelines and requirements, and they are also health inspected. This double-inspection results in clean and fresh environments and products.

In addition to fine meats, Doreck’s can supply tools necessary to deliver a meal to the table.

The same brand of knives Doreck’s uses is available in the store, including butcher knives, saws for field dressing deer, slicing meats at a cook-off or in your own kitchen.

Giving Back

Doreck’s also belongs to Hunters For The Hungry. If you or any hunters you know do not want your deer, pay the small processing fee and Doreck’s will donate all meat and donations to local charities such as The Woman’s Crisis Center. Contact them for information on donating meat to a local charity.
