Shipping meat can be a bit tricky... Here's how we do it.
Our meat is packaged while frozen and sent to you in a package on dry ice. This will ensure that your products arrive cold enough and safe to eat. Unfortunately this makes our shipments very heavy and expensive, but for the most part any company selling bacon on the internet will need to do it the same way and have the same costs.
In the case that our product arrives to you and it's not absolutely frozen, don't worry because it was frozen for the vast majority of its journey which is enoguh. Items can be refrigerated for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 3 months.In fact, it'ss fine and perfectly normal if there is little to no ice pack left in the box when it arrives.
All the bacon we send our customers is cured and fully smoked. It's preserved well enough that it's perfectly fine if it spends a few days outside of refrigeration. Some of it doesn't need to be refrigerated at all until the package is opened.
Packages cannot be delivered on Sundays or Mondays.
Once your order ships you will receive a tracking notification from USPS to let you know its on the way. The box will be left in a safe spot if you are not home without a signature, so please be on the lookout for it!
Due to import/export restrictions, we are unable to ship our products outside the United States.

Shipping PoliciesYour shipment will go out on a Monday - Wednesday. We ship your product Monday through Wednesday and do not ship them on Thursday or Friday because some shipping carriers do not deliver on weekends, shipping at the beginning of the week ensures that your order is not in transit for excessive amounts of time. Orders shipped later in the week, even with icepacks, may not arrive in the condition they left us.
PLEASE NOTE: BaconBuff.com cannot be held responsible for any products that arrives damaged due to heat regardless of the shipping method selection. No refunds or replacements can be issued on any melted product regardless if ice packs/expedited shipping options are or are not selected.
While ice packs will already be included in your order, you can add additional ice packs to orders that may melt during shipping. We recommend that during the summer months and hot weather days you take advantage of this option.
Please note that ice packs only last on average 1-2 days once packed and shipped. These ice packs keep cool for up to 48 hours once packed. Although ice packs can be added to your shipment to minimize heat exposure, ICE PACKS DO NOT GUARANTEE YOUR PRODUCT FROM MELTING. For optimal use, select both an ice pack as well as expedited shipping options to ensure the safe arrival of your purchase.
**You will receive a notification email with your tracking number when your order ships. Please let any gift recipients know to expect a perishable package. FedEx will leave the package at the recipient’s address and the contents will remain frozen into the evening. Bacon Buff cannot be responsible for damage to unclaimed gifts or incorrect address information. If the recipients are not available that evening to receive the package, Bacon Buff cannot be responsible. It is the purchasers responsibility to ensure recipients are going to be home on the date of delivery.
