yes it's true... and his other son runs deli bee in valois... the original pete's location, by the mayfair tavern.

Pete's is amazing... maybe better than Schwarts'. and you don't have to stand in the rain or cold to get a sandwich.

I do believe Pete has someone else smoke to his spec's

Hey WildDon,
Do they sell the uncooked brisket there??? I've just purchased a smoker and am chomping at the bit (you might say) to get smokin'!!! Have found tons of recipies and websites for making the brine and some different rubs you might use. And of coarse the different woods to choose from.
I just might try a local butcher from the west island and see what I can find.
CHOW for now!

Have just spoken with friends of mine... they went to Smokemeat Pete's for lunch and said that it might even be the best they've ever had. Including Schwartzs'. Easy in and out...
A bit of a line but worth the wait. Both of these guys know the S word quite well and agree Petes' may just be better.

I need MEAT for a MAN for a Christmas present! (Kansas City)

I heard from "LESTERS" meats... They can only ship to US for retail sales. Minimum 1,000lbs. I'm guessing you're not that hungry.

Another way would be to find US customs broker and get the required permit.

Personally, I'd do it, but that's me. Good news is I can get the stuff, Hot or Cold in a matter of minutes.

Not sure anymore. That Mad Cow thing ya know. I'm in transportation so I'll get back with more info... I'll ask some our drivers and see if they are still loosing their meat products. Give me a day or two. Mean while,here is Lesters website... www.lesters.ca Try contacting them and ask, Never Know! They do have a toll-free number posted.

Briskets Montreal - any good?

Thats cool... I, personally didn't say that the quality has suffered... I'm just enjoying the on-going discussion and different peoples opinions and experiences. Again, just to say that Ol' Schwartz started it and is enjoying the honor of other folks attempting to knock them off the top. "Imitation is the greatest form of flattery"
CHOW.

Schwartz's "was" the best in MTL... They hang in there 'cause of their history. Good to have some honest competition around. The owner doesn't hang around and quality suffers. As I have said before... You may have to search for bad smoked meat in MTL....
Lots of great places around, and you don't have to look very hard.

If you are looking for Smoked Meat, It absolutely "MUST" come from Montreal... I'll give you some info to inquire. If they'll ship it to you, you'll not be sorry! Don't tell your friends you have Mtl smoked meat in your house... they won't leave 'till it's gone.

Next time you roll down the 401 into Quebec... Stay on 20E thru dorion etc. Remember the Dairy Queen on Ile. Perrot? Right behind is Smokemeat Pete's. Use the DQ's parking. It will knock a half hour off
a good Smoked Meat jones for sure. CHOW!

Hmmm... Not sure if you can still ship to the U.S. anymore, Meat products that is... They're still on edge with the Mad Cow thang.
Our drivers can't carry "any" packaged meat or meals with meat with them in coolers across the boarder... Must stock up down there.

I've had Schwartzs',Abies' and Pete's all fairly recently and were all really good although Abie's cutters could be more consistent.

I hear ya. Just that the survey brought Pete's to the front for what it's worth. There a lot of worthy meat out there for sure. Thanks for your point of view. JD

Can't pass judgement 'till you've tried them all... Again, SM Pete's was just named #2 for Smoked Meat as per a CFCF/Pulse call in survey... Fairly large audience don't ya know. I think... We might all agree that if you're in need of great smoked meat, You'd have to be in Montreal... Anyone??

There we go... someone who's not crazy about Schwartzs'. Not the only place you know. May want to drive to Mtl's west end and try
"Smokemeat Pete's". Recently rated #2 in Mtl. and possibly the world.
Schwartz's came first of course, 'cause they've been around forever and people just have to vote that way. Oh yeah, Pete's is real easy to find... right behind the Dairy Queen on hywy 20 in Ile. Perrot, QC. Not that far when your addicted to good Smoked Meat.
