WOODSTOCK -- One barbecue food vendor at the fair is back by popular demand.

D & M Meats, a meat processing and butcher shop in Mount Jackson, has been gone from the Shenandoah County Fair for the past five years.

But after a mounting number of requests from hungry fairgoers, the barbecue stand has returned.

Tammy Mischler, who was helping manage the stand on Monday, said their specialty is the ribeye sandwich.

"It's a thin-cut ribeye and we grill it and put it on the sandwich," she said, adding that it goes together well with dill pickle chips.

Each ribeye sandwich is $5.

D & M Meats is owned by David and Maycel Hovatter. The couple also run Avondale Farms, where they raise animals such as pigs, chickens and cattle.

David Dodson, a farmhand at the Avondale Farm, said all of their meats come from the farm-raised animals, including the sliced ribeye.

"They go from calves when they're born, and they never leave the farm," he said.

The D & M Meats food stand opens at about 11 a.m. during fair week. It's located in front of the grandstand near the fair office.

"We've had a lot of customers who are glad this is back," Dodson said.
