Our Smoked Meats are best served within a couple of months but will be good up to a year in the freezer

In an unopened package, your meat will be good for a month however if you don’t plan on consuming within seven days we recommend you freeze it. Once the package has been opened it will be good for seven days in the refrigerator.

This depends heavily on the weather and several variables. Call our office at (800) 950-2327 so that we can determine whether or not your meat is still in tip-top shape.

We think our ready to eat smoked meat is best served at room temperature. However, if you prefer to warm up, there are a couple of different ways...

SET OVEN AT 300º for Chicken, Brisket and Pork Loin.
CHICKEN: 30 Minutes
BRISKET: 15-20 Minutes
PORK LOIN: 20 Minutes

SET OVEN AT 325º for Turkey and Ham. Heat 10 minutes per pound.

1/4lb. to 1/3lb. per person.

Set oven at 300º. Wrap in foil (shiny side in) and warm for time recommended on the recipe card that can be found on your shipping label.

The Jalapeño Sausage, Polish Sausage, and the Red Hot Links are all fully cooked and ready to eat. Just throw on the grill or in the skillet and heat to desired temperature. The Pork Sausage is not fully cooked so cook until the internal temperature reaches 160’ F.

The shelf life on the soups is a year. If you cook it after the year mark it may not have as much flavor or freshness as it would fresh off the shelf.

The chili is generally not a spicy product however, if you are sensitive to spices or prefer your chili mild, we recommend adding ¼ to half of the package and let simmer for an hour and taste. If after an hour you find that you need more spices, gradually add a small amount at a time, let simmer for 10 minutes and taste. Continue adding until it meets your desired taste.

You can use Light Mayo and Light Sour Cream
