The meat is frozen when we package it, and we put it in a cooler with ice packs for shipment. Depending on your location, it may arrive frozen or partially thawed. You can refreeze the meat upon arrival or put it in your refrigerator to thaw.

Due to the nature of the product, Bret’s BBQ Burnt Ends and the shredded cheese for Hot Beef Sundaes will feel soft and malleable upon arrival. It may remain this way in a standard freezer as well because these products require a lower temperature for solid freezing.

Your order will be processed, packed, and shipped the same day or day after your order is placed, depending on when the order came through. Your order will ship the same day if it is placed before 3 pm Central Time. We do not ship on Thursdays and Fridays. If you have more questions about shipping, visit Shipping and Handling
Your order will be delivered within 2 business days. If you have more questions about shipping, visit Shipping and Handling

Don’t worry! The meat is frozen and packed with ice packs, so your meat should be okay sitting out on a summer day. But you will also receive an email notification when your order is delivered, so you can know how long it will be outside. Still worried? We offer business delivery as well if that works better with your schedule!
