Dave Ruedlinger

Meat Expert

Dave Ruedlinger is Desert Mountain’s in-house meat guy. He started his career in the mid-70s, and later became the Rocky Mountain meat coordinator for Whole Foods. Dave is Desert Mountain’s “inside man” in the meat industry. If you want to know how many different cuts come out of a top sirloin, or the perfect thickness for a t-bone – Dave’s your guy. When he’s not hanging around the meat counter, Dave can be found in his home state of Colorado – fly-fishing, upland game hunting, road biking, or hanging with his Bouvier de Flandres (it’s a cattle herding dog).
