Bourke’s Butchery in Richard Street is powering ahead under the leadership of local butchery manager Ernie Delany.

As manager of Bourke’s only butchery, Ernie and his team are kept busy preparing all the best cuts, and keeping up production of sausages, mock chicken legs and gourmet offerings for the Bourke community.

Other products on sale at Bourke’s Butchery include Australian cooked tiger prawns, Morrall’s bread, Maggi gravy, beef jerky from Bourke Steet Butchery in Dubbo, plus smoking pellets and meat rub products from Ace Butchery Supplies.

Ernie say theat Bourke’s special butchery product – the famous chicken mockies are selling like never before.

“The mock chicken legs are rolling out the door at about four or five hundred per week and we sell about 200 to 300 kilos of our own handmade sausages per week.

“Bourke people like to try all sorts of cuts of meat – they’re not stuck in their ways and will try anything.

Business is so good at Bourke’s Butchery that Ernie has had to put in a big new cool room out the back of the premises, just to hold enough stock.

Besides running a business Ernie is always helping to raise money for local sporting and community groups.

Right now, at Bourke’s Butchery you can take a ticket in the Louth Cricket Club’s raffle of a XXXX Esky, and big meat tray and a cast iron cooking, for $5.

Ernie is also raffling a Melbourne Storm guernsey valued at about $700 and signed by the Melbourne superstars of 2017 – Cameron Smith, Billy Slater, Cooper Cronk, Daen Britt, Josh Addo-Carr and Cameron Muenster. All proceeds go to the Bourke Warriors Rugby League Football Club.

“You’ll never see another Guernsey like this on the market,” Ernie said.

Then if you can guess the weight of Ernie’s watermelon, and all guesses are free, you could win yourself a $150 open order at Bourke’s Butchery.

“This is an instore competition where we are giving something back to the community” Ernie said.
