The Spotted Trotter was founded in 2009 by chef and butcher Kevin Ouzts in Atlanta, GA, featuring sustainably and locally sourced meats and ingredients like Sorghum Syrup, Pecans, Cayenne Peppers and sweet Georgia Peaches.
The Spotted Trotter aims to create a 'New American Charcuterie' featuring the flavors and terroir of the southeastern United States.
Trained at the fabled Napa Valley restaurant The French Laundry, as well as under the tutelage of Taylor Boetticher from The Fatted Calf, Kevin has an impeccable taste and grasp of the flavor balances that make his truly outstanding charcuterie shine.
Taste for yourself what sets the Spotted Trotter products apart from the rest with their salamis and cured meats, or try their original takes like Duck Proscuitto, Nduja, Southern Smash Salami, or Black Pepper Sorghum Pancetta to find the pinnacle of southern flavor and technique.
Our Featured Spotted Trotter Meat
Duck Pastrami makes a great recipe spectacular. This pepper-speckled deli staple is salty, tender and succulent the perfect addition to any charcuterie and cheese platter.
It all starts with a seasoned garlic brine, then rubbed in a toasted spice rub and slow smoked on pecan wood. This duck has intense flavor with absolute balance that pairs well with just about any cheese in the book. This meat has quite the range, very approachable and unique and pairs wonderfully with big buttery chardonnay and deep dark stouts.
