Buzz Buttered Steaks might be the reason that you stumbled onto this great website in the first place. Buzz Buttered Steaks are part of our company's long history, and the first thing that many people in our community think of when they hear mention of Buzz. We don't have a problem with that. To explain, in 1958, on Bullitt Street in Charleston, the first box of Buzz Buttered Steaks came off the production line at Hy-Grade Sales and a legend was born. A "deliciously different" meal made from pure beef and real butter, Buzz Buttered Steaks quickly gained popularity on family dinner tables and in lunch pails throughout the Appalachian coalfields and beyond. Easy to prepare, the steaks caught on as fans created their own recipes ranging from sandwiches to center-of-the-plate entrees. Nearly sixty years later, loyal fans of Buzz Buttered Steaks remember them being "the first thing my mother ever let me cook."
The legend around Buzz Buttered Steaks grew even wider in 1976 when theives stole a Buzz truck containing more than six tons of the popular product. By the time a multi-state manhunt ended, more than a dozen well-fed accomplices were charged with distributing stolen goods. As publicity around the caper grew, Buzz Buttered Steaks experienced record sales and the rest, as they say, is history.
Today, you can find Buzz Buttered Steaks for sale in most independent and chain grocery stores in West Virginia (if not, ask the meat manager!). We receive MANY, almost daily, kind and sentimental comments from Buzz Buttered Steak fans around the country. Visit the facebook fan page here.
