If you can’t get to the store due to COVID-19, or if your store is fresh out of your favorite meat cuts, you can always order by mail. Many of our favorite meat suppliers, some of whom sell steaks to top steakhouses around the country, will now ship meat right to your door. You can get prime rib for Christmas, Kurobota pork chops for a special dinner, and Wagyu brisket for the best smoked brisket you ever tasted. Or just pick up a few ribeyes for this weekend’s barbecue.
Here are some meat and fist suppliers we like:
Porter Road: Porter Road works with select local farms, processes all meat in their own facility in Kentucky, and expertly hand-cuts every piece. The company specializes in pasture-raised beef, pork, lamb, and chicken free of antibiotics, hormones, and GMOs. All their beef is dry aged for 14 days. Equally appealing is the fact that they ship the meat fresh and not frozen!
Allen Brothers: That’s a wagyu ribeye from this boutique butcher at the top of the page. Allen Brothers has been supplying many of the country’s best steakhouses since 1893, and they also have a retail catalog in print and online that includes beef that Meathead says he keep in his freezer at all times for whenever somebody special comes for dinner. They sell USDA Prime, Wagyu in all grades up to A5, and dry aged beef in a wide range of ages. They recently have expanded to include heritage breeds of pork, premium seafood and poultry, lamb, sausages, and more. Highly recommended.
Crowd Cow: Crowd Cow offers you the ability to buy meat raised on select farms so you have an understanding of what it was fed, how it was finished, and the types of flavors you can expect before you buy. Offerings change from week-to-week including beef raised in pastures in the Carolinas, bacon from heritage hogs, pasture raised chicken and chicken sausages, pasture raised turkey, wild caught Copper River salmon, and more.
Greener Grazing is in Gorrie, Ontario. They ship beef, pork and chicken. They claim their animals are raised in a natural environment without the use of any artificial hormones or antibiotics, and using humane and ethical handling practices.
Flannery Beef: The Flannerys have supplied San Francisco and L.A. restaurants with high-quality beef since 1963. They specialize in prime Holstein beef, and their burger blend is a special experience, including equal parts Wagyu chuck, prime short rib, choice filet mignon, and dry-aged steak ends. You can order from Goldbelly.
Pat LaFrieda: This is probably the most famous butcher in America, partly because he’s in New York City and appears often on the Food Network. And his burger blend is justly famous. Pat’s LaFrieda’s “Original Burger Blend” was developed by his grandfather about 100 years ago and has not changed since. It’s a combination of chuck, brisket, and short-rib from American Black Angus. LaFrieda only sells direct to foodservice, but you can order several of his different burger blends from Goldbelly.
Sitka Salmon Shares: Like a local farm sells shares for a weekly box of fresh produce, Sitka operates a Communited Supported Fishery (CSF). You sign up and get a monthly shipment of high quality wild Alaskan seafood, including line caught coho salmon, sablefish (black cod), sashimi grade tuna, pot caught spot shrimp, Dungeness crab, and more, all seasonally caught, blast frozen, and delivered right to your doorstep. Monthly deliveries are 4.5 to 5 pounds and you can choose different plans to get the seafood you like.
Snake River Farms: A top supplier of American wagyu beef, Berkshire pork, and a wide assortment of prime beef roasts and steaks under their Double R Ranch label. Their Wagyu gold grade is about 11 or 12 on the Japanese marbling scale, while USDA Prime is only 4 to 5. This meat is a cross between Wagyu and Angus, and their brisket is wildly popular with BBQ competition teams.
Strube Ranch: This Texas ranch has a herd of Wagyu and their ribeyes, strip loins, sirloins, and briskets are worth tasting.

It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive!

This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King’s proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills. The quality cast aluminum housing carries a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.
The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!
