I've never done this.  But, in these times...

How do they work?  I assume they are delivered vacuum sealed, but how are they kept refrigerated/frozen?  

Also, are there any butchers people prefer?  If I want top-end, I'll go Flannery.  Are there less expensive, yet delicious, options?

They are packed in dry ice in styrofoam shippers. They will come rock hard frozen as they should.

We have been ordering from a local company that gets beef, pork, sausage, chicken, eggs, etc. from regional farmers.  Order online.  Delivery charge of $5.  No brainer and outstanding quality.

Received a very nice gift pack from a client this past Christmas season and it was fabulous.  I've ordered more myself since and have been very happy.

I go local.  Call around your local butcher shops, alot of them have pivoted to offering this service in my area.

meat comes in a big styro, still frozena nd vacu sealed

Any sense on Allen Brothers?  The prices on their basic USDA Prime cuts are super-reasonable are super-reasonable.  Almost to the extent that I'm concerned about quality.  (Their dry-aged and wagyu are pricier, though.)  But they got a shout-out in Town&Country.

i just checked, the prices are acutallyl a touch higher than my local butcher.

so I wouldn't say that you shoudl be concerned about qualitly.

Thanks, guys.

I wound up ordering from Flannery.  I know them and love them, and I ordered from the "helluva deal" steaks, which are perfect for my purposes and well priced for their quality.  Plus, got some nice cuts of pork.
