  1. Ah. Taylor pork roll. Lovely stuff, but it spoils quickly...gets moldy. I'd start by checking sell-by dates and get the newest one they have. The bigger the roll (like the giant one they have at BJs) the longer to warm-up. I'd be inclined to freeze it and wrap it in styrofoam sheeting, but I've never done it either, so I don't know how it'll come out.

    1. Go to their web site - - and have them ship it for you.

        Odds are extremely good that you can't ship an appropriately wrapped package for less than they can.

      2. Born in NJ and now can buy it at my local market. I would buy the one pound rolls, freeze them solid and them pack in an insulated case with sealed cold packs. That should be fine for a trip that takes less than a day.
