Smoking Goose was founded as a butcher shop and specialty food market by Indianapolis natives and high school sweethearts Chris and Mollie Eley in 2007. The family business grew into Smoking Goose in 2011 as a result of the relationship Chris built with farmers. Smoking Goose uses old world craft and new world flavors to make over 40 varieties of slow cured and smoked meats, salumi, and sausages in small batches. Chris and the Smoking Goose team still seam butcher by hand and cure without compound nitrates. While producing this way takes more time, more effort, and more patience, Chris' and Mollie's unwavering commitment to quality, flavor, and humane, sustainable farm partners drives them to keep doing things the right way.
