About Us

Hey hey, we're Dietrich Ayala and Ryan Snyder.

We're just a couple of amateur meat makers. We're techies professionally, but spend most of our free time thinking about, eating, making, or writing about food.

We started a meat club in Portland, Oregon, and brought together groups of friends to teach them how to make Bacon, various types of sausages and smoked meats. Together we chopped, ground, cured, stuffed and smoked thousands of pounds of meat to test and tweak the recipes that we're giving you in Meat Club.
