Shipped Lockhart BBQ

Having experienced some of the Lockhart products first hand, it was awesome. Was looking to get some of that (likely Blacks, not sure if any of the others ship) sent to me in the snowy northeast. Does anyone here know what I can expect - I'm guessing it won't be as good, but is it worthwhile at all? Does it ship well? I'm guessing one reheats it in the oven, will it still be great and worth the shipping cost?

  1. I think Kreuz does mail order, but I've never tried it and, frankly, have no great desire to do so. Snow's also does mail order, and probably will try it, but haven't yet. We've had such good luck with Black's. I send it to my son and his family out in San Jose CA fairly often. They've had Central Texas BBQ in Central Texas many times, so they're probably pretty good testers.

    They think it's great. Not quite as good as sitting there inhaling the smoke while you eat, of course, but most definitely much better than anything they've been able to find out there.

    In fact, my son's birthday is coming up and he's been reminding me...

      Good to know. I'm always a little leery of having things shipped. As you say it's never the same due to atmosphere, but sometimes it is *really* not the same. Thanks!

    2. I'll let you know ... just ordered some Snows (should be delivered next week) and I'll let you all know how it holds up.

        I have ordered brisket from Snows and it was as good as any I've had at the smoker site which includes Llano, Lockhart and Luling. Thaw it in the refrigerator for a day, then heat it at 225 deg. You won't regret it.
