Gamekeepers Smokehouse

Gamekeepers Smokehouse


The Gamekeepers Smallgoods team is led by Chris Roach, 3rd generation butcher with over 25 years’ experience. Chris and his highly skilled team are meticulous and passionate about using authentic processes and the highest quality ingredients.

The imported smokehouse from Germany, continually smokes day and night to produce one-of-a-kind products such as award-winning wood smoked hams, kaiser fleisch, ham hock, bacon, wagyu pastrami, smoked duck and chicken products. A unique three-stage low smoking process using Victorian Mountain Ash wood chips is applied to give that distinct smoky sweet flavour.


  • At Gamekeepers, there is a zero-tumbling policy (a water and chemical bulking process widely used with commercially made ham).
  • All Gamekeepers' hams are made from one pork leg with the start weight the same as the finished weight.
  • For all pork products, we only use 100% Australian female ethically bred and reared, with rare breed pigs also available. 

What's tumbling?
Tumbling enlarges the muscle fibre cross-section which increases water retention capacity allowing hams to gain in excess of 50% in weight when pumped with soy proteins, vegetable gums and water. Commercially made hams are often made up of different pieces of the animal. You know the ham we're talking about - it's perfectly round, it's a bit shiny and does not taste like ham should.
