    So...I am one of those people now... the kind I get irritated at for not reading what's right in front of their face. Creekstone's website plainly states they don't ship Thurs-Sun. And I missed it. Now I fee like a dummy. The good news is I now can help some in the future who might miss this as I did.

    The 'your package shipped' notice I got last Thursday and the [false] notice I got yesterday saying 'out for delivery' from UPS didn't help my confusion though. I like to think if it weren't for that I'd not have gotten worried too much when it was 'delayed'.

    UPDATE: It all arrived today. Tri tips were frozen though, not fresh as described, and everything else was fine. Frozen but not rock hard frozen.

    efincoop willxfmr Thanks! I
    didn't get the no-ship Thurs/Fri notice, hence my worry. That makes his sense w/ the weekend thing though. You guys made me feel much better. (I still don't understand why I got a notice it was out for delivery this morning though... Odd.) Oh well, I shan't worry.

    Porter Road is mostly fresh, Creekstone is typically frozen, aside from the tri tips in this particular pack

    I ordered the same day you did, and also got a shipping conformation the next day. When I tracked the shipment thru UPS, It informed me that the label had been created, but the package itself had not shipped yet. So for those 3 or 4 days, my "shipment" was really nothing more than a label sitting on a bench somewhere. Mine turned into a "real" package today, and should be here Thursday.

    Huskee I hope this will ease your worried mind as something similar happened to me. I reached of them and got the following response: "Thank you for your order. We are showing that this order was placed on Wednesday at 3:02pm. As stated on our website any order placed after noon CST will not be processed until the next business day and we do not ship on Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Our shipping team does pre-make labels on Thursday and Friday for quicker shipments on Monday."

    Hmmm I thought they were mostly fresh. That might change my thinking.. thanks.

    Most of their stuff is frozen. This is the first time I've seen fresh even mentioned.

    One reason I don't order from them. It is their fault in the sense that they decide to ship fresh and shipping fresh meat anytime but early in the week is just silly.

    So I ordered 2 of these packs last Thursday, UPS 2-day air. I got a shipment notice the same day I ordered them. By my math even if it didn't ship until Fri, and weekends aren't counted, I should've gotten it Monday. But often they deliver on weekends and even Sundays.

    This morning I got a shipment notice that it was out for delivery (at least 1 day late), yet it didn't come. UPS online now tells me tomorrow, Weds. Tomorrow makes 6 days, 4 business days since ordering.

    The tri tips come fresh. So now I am a little worried that they may be >40F and the frozen meats may be thawed. It's not hot here now, but it was upper 80s last few days.

    I realize this isn't Creekstone's fault, I have to trust their shipment notice and they've never done me wrong in the past. And while I hate to blame UPS (sorry ComfortablyNumb, you and a local buddy of mine work for them) here I am now potentially experiencing what many of you have- delayed delivery of temp & time-sensitive meat, with the potential problems of it being wasted. They're from Kansas so we can't really blame this on Ida, can we?

    Tonight was going to be a fresh tri tip dinner, but instead, tacos. First world problems, right?

    They'd have 1 more if I hadn't hogged 2 of 'em!

    Well that just sucks. I was really happy to see points instead of flats on sale for a change.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.
