Reheating Instructions

Our products are cured, smoked, vacuum sealed and frozen allowing us to safely ship them to you.
Depending on shipping/delivery time, the meat can arrive frozen, partially frozen, or thawed.


Refrigerate as soon as possible after delivery.


If you will not be eating it within a week, it should be put into freezer. Your BBQ can be thawed a day or 2 before use ( in the refrigerator) or it can be placed directly into boiling water out of the freezer (will take a few minutes longer to reheat if this option is used).

In order to retain moisture, keep sealed in original protective vacuum sealed pouch while reheating.

 Our Heat and Eat Process

Reheating Vacuum Packed BBQ in Boil-In Bags

We have created a reheating process that will provide you with the same quality barbecue that you would get if you were eating it directly from our pits or our Food Truck…and it’s as easy as heating water in a pot on your home stove.

Your BBQ has been vacuum sealed in a special high temperature BPA Free, Recyclable bag that allows you to reheat directly in boiling water. Because the BBQ was vacuum sealed, it preserves the food by not allowing any transfer of oxygen in or out of the bag; what comes out of the bag is in exactly the same condition as what went in the bag…fresh BBQ like it just came off of our pits.

 

!!!!!! Please remove the bag from the HOT water with caution !!!!!!

This is how it works…

  1. Fill a pot partially with cold water ( amount of water will be based on the amount of bags being reheated. A good rule of thumb is to fill the pot 1-2 inches above the bag(s) placed in the pot)
  2. Bring the water to a boil and then reduce to a simmer (a slow boil, 190F degrees) Place the bags into the pot.
  3. Follow the chart below to see how long to leave your BBQ in the simmering water.  The meat should reach a temperature of between 155 and 165 degrees; the meat and the bag will be very hot to the touch.
  4. Open the bag with a scissors or knife being careful of hot steam release, empty the contents into your serving dish and Enjoy your Fresh BBQ
