Butcher shop typeface

I am designing the identity of a new, artisanal charcuterie. Anyone have any ideas for the perfect typeface?

The PTF Ambroise faces perhaps? (Especially the Francois Black.)

Great suggestions! Motter Corpus is sooo meaty. What's the shop name? That will help find the fonts with best glyphs.

Don't forget the requisite animated gif.

Here are a few that make me think of a butcher -- many inspired by Oz Cooper (ignore if it's a super classy place):

MVB Bovine (not just for the name), Fritz, Robusto, Maiandra, Oz, Sauna Swash Black Italic, Tango, and -- perhaps too obvious -- Frankfurter

Fabulous 'Capone' ( Heavy ), by Pieter van Rosmalen..

( In the old tradition of the relationships between 'La Famiglia' and butchers.. :)
