Products used in the recipe: Baby Back Ribs and Ground Pork Shoulder.
The Wagner family has owned Wagner Meats & Mt. Airy Locker Co., a local institution, since 1953. The current owners have been running the store since the 1960s. The family added the popular retail store 29 years ago, but the large building on Main Street also houses facilities to process beef, lamb, and pork stock, ensuring that everything sold by Wagner’s is fresh and produced in-house.
