shipping cheese??

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

How would one go about shipping smoked cheese? I have a few friends in Michigan (I'm in Ohio) that want some for Christmas, is it possible to ship and how?

Vacuum pack it.  Place and gel ice pack in the box, ship it UPS two or three day service.

depending on where you ship to in Michigan ground shipping gets there the next day

I have shipped my homemade smoked mozzarella by putting it in a small collapsible cooler with reuseable gel packets and shipped 2 day. Recipient said it was still cold when she got it.

I have started shipping full meals and I use the vaccum packed and the chem-ice packages and it works great. The main thing I learned right of the bat is you have to get the address right. That speeds it up alot too.

Good thread, and as always, lots of good info. I'm also looking to ship some stuff during the holidays and this is very helpful info.

Yep, I've done the same for my college students (for a little taste of home, don't ya know!  -- home = smoke).  Vacuum pack and wrap in gel ice packs. 2 day delivery.  Just make sure they know it's coming so it doesn't sit around and get too warm.

 You should really try to find someone with a sealer - it will help extend the life of the cheese a lot

Will do, that will likely go to the top of my "to get" list!

Well I believe that I could be 'coaxed' into being a shipment recieving test dummy.  Send some to me by various means and I will critique for free!! Yes, for FREE!! I would even share the cost of shipping if asked...LOLOLsausage.gif

You can get a insulated shipping box and use ice packs and 2  day ship that what I do when I ship to the east coast ..
