“The smell of roasting meat together with that of burning fruit wood and dried herbs, as voluptuous as incense in a church, is enough to turn anyone into a budding gastronome.”
--- Claudia Roden
There’s something about meat that is uncannily irresistible. Evolution taught us to eat meat as an efficient food alternative to vegetables that many of our ancestors depended on. But that alone doesn’t justify the intense cravings of meat lovers.
What drives people nuts is the taste of the meat when prepared and cooked with the best method. That’s why Meatballly commits to aid cooking enthusiasts and chefs around the world with numerous recipes, cooking tips, new ideas, and resources as to processing and preparing meat.
Who We Are
Growing up in Kansas City neighborhoods, hotbeds of slow-smoked meat and spice-rubbed grills, we share a legacy of traditional barbecues and grilled meat. We all met in a local cooking institute when the idea to share our expertise with a website came into our mind. That’s how it all started.
Meatballly is a dynamic platform where we share our in-depth culinary insights into a wide range of meat processing gear and accessories. Our team comprises trained chefs, charcuterie and raw meat experts, mechanical engineers, market analysts, and the average Joes who also happen to be real food enthusiasts.
Although coming from diverse backgrounds, we are bonded together by one common interest - “Meat!” We also keep track of the latest advancements in the cookware and kitchen tools industries. We even own a lab for experimenting different grilling methods.
Our primary goal is to establish this platform as a reliable source to get well-familiar with the leading cookware and meat processing equipment. We’re following a specific work agenda to connect to the global audience. It takes tons of research work and technical investigation as much as financial investments to get to that stage.
We believe that knowledge proliferates when shared. Our chefs and technical analysts use this website as part of their knowledge development initiatives. We also want to help our readers make the right choice when it comes to buying a variety of cooking and meat processing equipment.

How We Do IT
Market Research: Our product sorting process kicks off with extensive market research. We have a team of dedicated in-house market analysts trained for that job. It’s a dynamic industry and the technology is fast evolving. That’s why it’s important to calculate the price-to-value ratio through intensive research.
Independent Testing: Testing plays a major role in any investigation carried out on the basis of science. Since we follow a science-backed research framework, we have to keep testing. Every item that we review is bought from our own funds and we make sure we apply all necessary tricks and improvisations to get accurate results.
Our lab is our playground to do all the testing. We inspect the design, working mechanism, building materials, features, ergonomics, smoothness of operation, corrosion resistance, durability and every other important component based on the type of item under examination. We scrutinize the smaller details of the specs sheet and warranty coverage. The legal compliance issues are also checked from our end.
Experts’ Insights: Manufacturers from all around the world are constantly investing their money and time to come up with newer technologies and designs of kitchen tools and cookware. We are seeing newer and more upgraded tools today that we couldn’t even think of just five years back.
To keep up with the pace, we have to make sure we consult with the core researchers in this field. They guide us through their valuable feedback and suggestions that helps us add different perspectives to our endeavour.
