Looking for a good butcher in Seattle Eastside.

I moved (again), to the Seattle area, and am now without a good butcher (again). Can anyone recommend a good butcher in Seattle's Eastside (e.g. Redmond/Bellevue)? I cook pretty seriously, so ideally I'd like a place that has high quality meats, is knowledgeable enough to answer questions, can deal with custom or unusual orders, that kind of thing.

Help me find a snarky butcher blog post I vaguely remember

I'm looking for a post from a butcher shop in response to a customer complaint about bursting sausages. In response, the butcher showed five or so ways to properly prepare a sausage. It was snarky, no-nonsense, funny. I recall the shop had a sort of design-y vibe, and they had a blog after all, so I sort of suspect this butcher was in Portland or San Francisco. My searching is getting bogged down by chowhound, ehow, and the like. Does this jog anyone's memory?

Where can I buy fresh duck in Milwaukee?

Where can I buy fresh duck in Milwaukee? I've tried Whole Foods and Metro Market, both only have frozen. Sendiks on Downer has nothing. Would I have more luck at a specialty Asian grocer?

How does 21 day hung steak keep fresh?

My local supermarket's best steaks are hung for 21 days apparently, and are red and fresh. However, when I used some the other day, and put some uncooked leftover back in the fridge, it went brown and started rotting within a couple of days. How does the butcher manage to hang the meat for 21 days without the same thing happening?

Grinding!

[USDAFilter]So every butcher at the local chain grocery stores has informed me that they will not make ground chicken out of thigh meat. They say that grounding (sp?) breast meat and thigh meat on the same machine is a no-no (according to the USDA) and that it's not worth the money to invest in a second machine just to make ground thigh meat. I cannot find reference to this on the interwebs at all. Questions abound below the fold... [more inside]

Proper butcher shop in Portland/Beaverton/Hillsboro?

Can anybody recommend a top notch butcher shop in Portland, OR (actually even better would be Beaverton/Hillsboro)? Sometimes for special occasions I'd like to step up my cooking a notch, including getting more specific cuts or prep, asking questions, etc, and actually interacting with my butcher.

Naked meat or shrink-wrapped meat?

In an ordinary supermarket, is there really any difference between the meat sold in the butcher case and the meat that's wrapped in plastic in the regular meat section? ("About three bucks a pound" is my reflex answer too. I'm curious about quality.)
