BBQ Tricks just received a nice birthday gift… a batch of steaks from Allen Bros. And like any true MEATHEADs we decided to show it off a bit.
Allen Brothers is a Chicago based meat company, similar to Omaha Steaks, that sells premium steaks to upscale steak houses and also has a thriving catalog to consumer (or Internet to the consumer) business.
I received the “Petite Breakfast Sampler” as a gift. These steaks are a smaller breakfast portion but are still a nice size.
Here’s how Allen Bros. suggests you handle the product:
Upon receiving your shipment of Allen Brothers meats, place them in your freezer immediately. Your shipment contained a block of dry ice to keep the product frozen during transit.
Dry ice is a frozen gas which dissipates over time. If there is dry ice remaining in the container, avoid contact with your bare skin. Use gloves or oven mitts to dispose of the ice, or leave the ice in the container, where it will dissipate naturally.
If there is no dry ice remaining in the container when you open your shipment, there is no need for concern. What is important is that the items are still frozen, or are cold to the touch.
We encourage you to recycle the sturdy polystyrene container your shipment arrived in.
Witness the unveiling… and yes they cooked up nicely (and tasted great) too.
