Best Meats for Grilling

Let’s face it, some meats are just better on the grill than others. Here’s our list of favorite meats to grill.

80/20 freshly ground beef
This will create the perfect juicy burger that doesn’t take too long to cook through all of the way. On top of all of that, it’s also incredibly cost effective.

For the most ideal grilling steak, use a bone-in rib eye. All you need is a hint of salt and pepper and a good hot grill for the perfect piece of meat.

Top Sirloin
If you’re looking to feed a lot of people, use the tender and juicy top sirloin. They are easy to cook and well priced.

With many flavors to choose from, this is on our list for sheer versatility. Try anything from Italian flavored to cheese stuffed. You won’t be disappointed.

Proudly Supporting Local Ranchers

At Macey’s we are committed to providing the freshest, highest quality meats to our shoppers. We are doing that by supporting local ranchers who provide Certified Angus Beef.  Angus is everywhere these days. Over the last couple of decades it’s even become a bit of a buzzword. It’s true. Angus beef is good. But Certified Angus Beef® is on an entirely different level. Certified Angus Beef has been the leader in premium beef since 1978 and it’s known for its great quality, marbling and tenderness. This beef is sourced from Angus cattle raised on family-owned ranches across the Intermountain West.

These are just a few of the local Certified Angus Beef ranchers we support:

  • Spring Cove Ranch, owned by Art and Stacy Butler, has been a family legacy since the first Angus cattle arrived in 1919. It is the oldest, continuously registered Angus cowherd west of the Rocky Mountains.

  • Jaca Land and Livestock Company, located in Nampa, Idaho, is home to more than 800 Angus cattle. Martin and Susan Jaca are raising the sixth generation of cattle at their thriving ranch.

  • A third-generation rancher, Travis Williams has raised Angus beef his entire life. Travis and his family are proud to provide our store with amazingly tender beef year round.
