Star Brand Beef delivery is done co-op style, which keeps delivery efficient and gives us all a chance to meet and chat. Customers will meet the delivery truck at a central location during a 1 to 3 hour window to pick up their beef. Exact times and locations will be emailed to you after your order has been placed. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: sbb[at]starbrandbeef.com
If you live along the route (I-15 SLC to LA; 101 LA to SF; I-90 Billings to Seattle, etc) but are not close to a designated stop and would like to place an order, email sbb[at]starbrandbeef.com and we may be able to arrange a quick stop for you just off the interstate.
KEEPING YOUR BEEF FROZEN ON THE TRIP HOME
Customers have driven up to six hours to meet the delivery truck, and a few simple techniques will ensure your beef stays frozen during your trip home, even in the heat of summer.
Star Brand Beef is packaged in individual portions, then packed in boxes which measure approximately 18″ x 12″ x 12.” Standard quarter orders range from three to five boxes, depending on the size of the quarter. By loading the boxes into your vehicle side by side and/or on top of one another, we keep the cold mass together, and this helps the chill from dispersing, allowing the whole area maintain frozen temperatures. Covering your boxes with quilts and/or thermal camping blankets adds an insulating layer, keeping the cold in and the heat out. This technique has worked for a number of people traveling four to six hours with absolutely no sign of thawing upon arrival home.
Coolers and dry ice will also keep everything frozen for an extended period of time. I recommend dry ice (which can often be purchased at grocery stores) over regular ice. Just a small amount of dry ice is needed: place a palm-sized piece of dry ice in a brown paper lunch sack, and place two or three of these in the bottom of each cooler (depending on the size of your coolers), then transfer the packaged meat from the delivery boxes straight into the coolers. Then place two or three more portions of brown-bagged dry ice on top of the meat in each cooler.
