I have been reading the board for quiet a while and have gotten quite a bit of information and help. My experience includes a small 6 lb brisket and a 15 lb brisket some chicken and ribs here and there. I am a wood smoker and love tending to the fire all night. I do have a question that I am not sure has been addressed. What is the best way to ship meat? I have a vacusaver but I don't know if I need to freeze it and send it in a cooler or just seal it, either way I would overnight it. Thanks for the help!

Welcome aboard. Some great friends on this forum. you will learn alot. I know when I shipped some fish across the country, I used dry ice. Fish was not pre-frozen though.

Welcome to the site. Not sure about shipping the meat but if overnighting and frozen I would think good insulation would work out but if you have access to dry ice I would definitely go that route.
Could purchase dry ice in every supermarket when I lived in AZ but here in Jersey it is evidently illegal to sell it in stores...go figure.
