Day 18- Bell’s butcher shop and fishing tournaments

Bell’s Meat & Poultry has been an establishment in Kane for 45 years and it’s because it has taken on the easy and friendly personality of founder Jack Bell, Sr. Today he shares stories about opening the shop, the most popular meats and his 15 years as a professional fisherman.

He doesn’t say it here, but we all know that if you go to Bell’s, you’d better “Bring your cooler!” Enjoy listening to the stories from over the years.


Here’s a 1 minute tour of a photo wall in the store:

He shared the story of how grillers began. The original suggestion from a regular custom was intended for something that fit in the palm of your hand, but Jack went bigger- and with more types of meat!
