Ok here is the deal. Stepson called yesterday for Navy A school and wants us to ship/mail him some Jerky/Summer sausage. Well it has to stay cold so how do you ship or mail something like that now days?? I know years ago you could buy a ice chest sort of thing that was set up for mailing but I have not seen something like that in at least a decade. So how is it done now days. Plus dye ice where does a person find that any more??
Thanks

I don't think you can ship something with dry ice. Might put the pilot to sleep permanently. Check with UPS or FEDEX.

Ex had an uncle that made jerky out of just about everything..... kept it in a crock like a cookie jar. Like Forrest Gump talking about a box of chocolates, no tellin what you'd get. Raccoon, beaver, fox, whatever he shot or trapped. None of it was bad tasteing. Plenty of pepper/seasoning.

Meijer store's in our area sell dry ice right next to the regular bagged ice. I don't know if that chain has reached MO yet. Seems like I remember seeing heavy walled styrofoam coolers for sale right there too.
Freeze the meat first and put the cooler in the freezer too. Add the dry ice and seal it up. It should stay cold for 8 days if it stays closed.

Can you ship Priority Mail to get it there sooner??

Thank your son for his service.

Check with USPS, FedEx, UPS and see what they recommend. One of them may be able to expedite the delivery.

Two points. One, I too wouldn't worry about the temperature for jerky and summer sausage. Two if you do need to ship something cold, like was said below use a sterofoam container and gel packs. If you know anyone that shoots insulin and get it by mail you should be able to get what you need. SWMBO gets her insulin that way.

How much do you need to send. I just got a box of vaccines in a nice styrofoam cooler w/ reuseable gel packs. About 10x12x10 tall. If the wife didn't find my hiding place and throw it away, I can send it to you (take a week or so for you to get it). Thought the purpose of jerky/salami was you don't have to refridgerate it??

The home made stuff you have to keep cold. I do not use a lot of salt in it and NO preservatives so that is why it has to stay cold. The recipe even says if stored for long to freeze it

Used to buy hog semen. They packed it in a styrofoam box with freezer gel packs around the vials.Never dry ice used.Temp would be a lot more critical for semen than jerky.

Where is the school, Old? Jerky and Summer Sausage will keep quite well at warmer temps. That is why it is made, To keep.

8 days is gonna be tough no matter what you use. Start with a Big cardboard box.Freeze the meat HARD,sealed in plastic bags. layer it with Newspaper, frozen gel packs, More newspaper, then dry ice, then more newspaper. Styrofoam sheeting cut into rectangles and fitted into the box. Box within a box.Layers are your friend! Keeping cold things cold and dry is the key. Most ice plants can get it. Local grocer has it here.
Aunt Ernice company ships med stuff frozen all the time.But your gonna have to improve on 8 days.
Good luck!And good eating to your son! If it has a good smoke on it,even if it thaws it still should be good when it arrives if he can refrigerate it on his end.

In Iowa HyVee grocery stores often sell dry ice. Around St. Louis I found it at a dry ice dealer long ago. Looked them up in the phone book.

The Omaha Steak Co.ships meat to a doctor in my hometown and it comes in a styrofoam container of some sort. Probably has dry ice inside it. The Publix Supermarkets around this part of the world have dry ice for sale in sub-zero coolers in their stores. Gene davis

A grocery store should have dry ice. Most people use a hard plastic cooler. You need to use clear tape, not duct tape. Check with post office, ups, or fedx. They can tell you ways to ship it.
