I just want to say Thank You for your
speedy service! Ordered on a Thursday... arrived on Monday! WOW!
Not at all what I am used to when dealing with the "Net"
I got your posters, Beef & Pork,
Color & B&W and must say, I am impressed. The quality seems to
be very good and I expect these will last a long, long time!And your pricing is spot on. By that I
mean... the price you list is the price paid! No hidden charges
or fees tacked onto the end price, Not Even SHIPPING! To top
that off, you offer a 100% money back guarantee.
(not that I think I will be using
this offer) How could a person go wrong in ordering from you???
In my opinion, they just can't! Oh, and just one more little
thing, the added note handwritten on the invoice, PERSONAL
SERVICE at it's best! I was sure this was a thing of the past,
long gone with many other services that I have held so dear.
Thank you Craig. You are a breath of
fresh air in a world gone crazy.
Keep up the great work!
I ordered three knives for my husband for Valentine's day this
year and he's been so excited about them that I just ordered two
of the 5 inch boning knives and one 8 inch for a very good
friend of ours. I can't believe I got an e-mail today saying
the knives are on their way after only ordering them this
morning! Thank you so much for the unbelievable turnaround
time. I think we might even have these in time to give to our
friend this weekend. You're the best! By the way, my husband
has not had to sharpen any of your knives! what quality
products. By this point in time, the Henckle knife would have
seen the stone many a time!

Craig I am cleaning out my emails when I noticed this, and I remembered that I owed you some feedback on your videos. I'd
like to say that you guys did an
excellent job! I was successful
in my hunt this past October,
and I harvested an elk that was
500 lbs. I had viewed the
videos before hunting, as I
wanted to be able to debone at
camp, this keeps me from needing
to bring as much ice. I was
able to debone a quarter quickly
(for me), it took less than 5
minutes per quarter once I had
them skinned and clean. BTW..
your video on removing quarters
was excellent. I was able to
quarter that elk (and debone)
with nothing more than a 6 inch filet knife.
Only problem that I had in the
field was keeping my knife sharp
enough to get through the hide, especially the neck. I brought a small field ceramic sharpener with me, but that elk hair is tough. I need to invest in a better knife for that. Any suggestions? It was a little tricky identifying the different cuts from the hind quarters of that elk, but I got through it just fine. I turned my kitchen into a butcher shop shortly after the hunt, lining the counter with a blue tarp, butcher paper, and cutting boards. The majority of the time was taken cleaning all the fat and fascia off of the meat. Luckily I have two daughters who wanted to help. We got everything sliced, diced, vacuum bagged and put away without my wife becoming too alarmed, even though my kitchen looked pretty gruesome for a short while! :-) I found my receipt from processing of my elk last year (granted, this included making sausage and jerky) but the bill was well over $300. I still have some grinding and sausage making to do, but your videos gave me the confidence to tackle this myself. Thanks again for putting these videos together and for the excellent speed in which they shipped. You guys rock! Regards, Frank Wirtz
Just wanted to say THANK YOU!! I don't usually do reviews, but this was one worth writing! We adopted a dog two months ago and he has a wild personality- as cute as it can be it can also be pretty annoying when you're trying to do things and he's mouthing you while you walk...he already poked a few holes in my nice sweaters just trying to play! When we put these bones down (we ordered the large smoked beef knuckles for our 20 lb. mixed breed) and he doesn't even notice we're in the room! I cooked dinner right in front of him just now and he could care less what food I had- he was just too busy :) We just put in our second order already and will continue shopping here. Plus the shipping is extremely fast!! THANKS again! Melissa
hello! we recently purchased your DVDs about butchering a hog. just this week the weather was finally cold enough on my husband's days off, and we butchered our own 300+ pound hog. neither my husband or i had ever done this before, so we were a little nervous about such a big animal. (we also raise pastured poultry, so we've done lots of butchering of small animals...)
your DVDs were fantastic! they were very informative and helpful, and we felt very confident about the job that we were doing. we actually put our little portable TV right out where we were working, and would play and pause as we worked right along!
you helped make the job of butchering our pig very manageable, and we are so pleased to have done it ourselves. we surely feel ready to tackle this annual chore at our little homestead, and would quickly recommend your DVDs to anyone interested in butchering themselves!
for your reply about the meat grinder the one
you recommended is very nice. The reviews
were all 5-star. I plan to get it when I get
the money together.¦ I know it will last a life
Also, a little about myself.
my own meat birds each spring about 30 Cornish
rocks. I also hunt deer and don't ever
plant to buy beef again. We had deer
burgers the other day and they were fabulous.
I also raised two hogs a year ago and plan to
raise two each year. I dressed out my two
hogs, but then took them to the butcher. I
want to do it all next time. I love to butcher
my own animals but I don't know a lot and feel
very blessed to have found your site. I plan to
acquire your video tutorials a little at a time.
My son, William, just turned 16 and he wants to
become a butcher/chef¦. He's very into it.
The last set of knives I purchased are for his
I look forward to doing business with you for
some time to come and will recommend people as
often as I can.
By the way, the survey I took has a coding error
where on one question that asks how important
certain factors were in ordering, it won't let
you choose the same level of importance on
multiple choices, for example, I could
only choose "very important" for one of the five
or so criteria. I hope this makes sense.

Hi Craig, I recently ordered knives from you and I wanted to thank you on your prompt delivery service. They are exactly what I was looking for. Thank you for your reassuring suggestion on the Forschner boning and breaking knives. I also have a story for you. Last week I ordered some books from a certain website named after a river. I ordered the books on Monday, Dec. 29th. I had to pay $10 and change for 3 day shipping and did not receive the books until the following Monday, Jan 5th. I ordered the knives from you on Wednesday, Dec. 31 (New Year's Eve) with no shipping charges and received them also on Monday, Jan 5th. What I'm getting at, is that I received your product quicker than the products I paid to have shipped. Thanks again for your great service all around and I look forward to doing further business with you. I work at a grocery store meat dept. and I am always sending my customers to your website for information and recipes. Thank you and Happy New Year! Customer for life, Tim Roberts
Hi Craig, You are a breath of fresh air! No damn pop ups or blinking adds or other crap that the web is full of. Easy to order.... especially for a hungry half in the bag person like myself. I wanted to try your selection of things I like and you made it toooooo easy for me. I tried to get some preservative from meat shops near home and got the deer look. Thanks for the service.... need more out there like you. Cory
Thank you so much, Craig. i didn't expect you to do that...it had been so long , i should have checked it sooner. Like I said, our pig just got big enough to kill.
Again, thank you. This is what sets your business apart from the rest!
I bought your guys Snack Stick Kit, was truly amazed at how my Snack Sticks turned out...... I never thought it could be that easy....... As soon as this batch is gone you guys will here from me again! I will also pass this along to my hunting buddies!!!!! Dan Brehm
All I can say is WOW! This is the site to help me cook up that venison to perfection...I have been doing pretty good, but can always use fresh ideas! My husband has processed too many deer for me to remember on my island in the kitchen. This is the best website ever! I have finally found an endless supply of birthday and Christmas presents to get in the future....starting with that knife! We are even considering processing our own beef too. Thank you for the great info. on this site. WOW! Who would ever think a website could make a girl so happy! Thanks!!! Jennifer
Thank You !! Thank You !! Thank You !! You are AWESOME !!!!!!!
We are the proud parents of 3 Pomeranians, 2 of which happen to be "VORACIOUS" chewers. I have been searching far and wide for an alternative to rawhide. Every pet store, every web site... you name it. These dogs go through rawhide like it's nothing. One of them even has a little weight problem. I'm sure it's due to the rawhide. It can't be healthy for them to ingest this over time.
No other chewing alternatives seemed to be acceptable to them. Believe me I've tried them all.
A few weeks ago we found some smoked shanks at our local gourmet grocery. "Jackpot" or so I thought. They were a little too big and quite costly. After getting off all the good crunchy stuff on the outside, (and they couldn't get to the marrow in the middle, only at each end) they lost their interest. The little mouths couldn't get around the big ole thing to work on chewing at it further. And after about breaking my toe a few times walking through the house.... I continued my search.
I was very impressed by your website. The "No Shipping Cost" caught my eye and I decided to give it a shot.
I bought the "Hickory Smoked Puppy Chews", since the dogs are all under 7 pounds this worked out to be a very good choice for me. They went crazy over them. When I arrive home from work and let them out of the kitchen they run straight for the last place they saw their chew. And three days later they are still working on the same chewies. They can get there jaws around them to chew and carry. It's hysterical to watch.
Our local gourmet grocery can't compete with you guys. The only teeny, weenie drawback is that now my beautiful fluffy lap dogs smell like "Hickory Smoked" lap dogs. LOLOLOL --- I don't even care....They smell like my husband after he has been outside smoking ribs.
I was totally impressed with the delivery. To place an order on Wednesday afternoon and they arrived on Monday around noon. Who can beat that with no shipping cost added to my order? I was more excited to see these in the mail so soon then anything in a long time. And also the personal note included on my invoice from Craig was priceless. I had just about lost all hope in good old fashion service with a smile.
Thanks so much once again.
Your customers for life....

The only thing I can say about this web site is WOW! The info is endless. I've just recently started looking for this type of info and have visited plenty of similar sites but none measure up to yours. I am hoping to order some of your products soon. C. Sapark
Mr. Craig Meyer, Thank you for such prompt service. It was truly a wonderful surprised to receive our sausage seasoning today! We're so pleased with your wonderful service, we've even shared your ordering information (invoice) with our friends. You've got our business forever! Sincerely, Mr. and Mrs. Mike Ventling
I just wanted to say thanks for having so much useful information on your site. I don't live anywhere near Missouri (I'm in San Francisco) but I come to your site all the time to look up meat recipes and suggestions after I followed your instructions for cooking a round eye roast and for the first time turned a very inexpensive cut of meat into something that tasted like it was much pricier. I've now ordered your meat reference charts (the whole family - i think the deluxe kit is what it's called) and may soon try some of your spice blends. But I just wanted to take a moment to say a big thanks for all the great info.

Think you've found a lower price on the Web? Are you SURE? Make sure you consider the following:
Have you added in their shipping charges? Our price includes free shipping! And your order usually arrives in 2 to 3 days!
Do they have a handling charge on top of their shipping charge? We have NO HANDLING CHARGE!
PLUS - You know your TOTAL COST NOW - NOT after you fill out 4 or 5 pages of credit card information, shipping addresses AND find out you have to Register yourself with THAT website with a lot of personal information!
And THEN find out they have a minimum order surcharge, or a handling fee or a Extremely High Shipping Fee!
And on top of that, your order might takes weeks to receive.
Plus you might find out that THEY DO NOT ship to P.O. Boxes!
ALSO - By shipping USPS you DO NOT have to be Home and Sign for your order when it arrives! And there is no Extra Residential Charge!
Here is a GREAT Example! (Price comparisons were taken on
May 13, 2014)
One of our competitors on the Internet has a Forschner-Victorinox 5-Inch Boning Knife For ONLY $19.10........ BUT, their shipping charge is $8.50. This brings Their Total Cost For the 5-Inch Boning Knife to $27.60!
Our TOTAL COST (INCLUDING Shipping) for the Forschner-Victorinox 5-Inch Boning Knife IS ONLY $24.99!
So we are actually $2.61 LESS EXPENSIVE! So don't let the other guys fool you with their "apparently" lowest price of $19.10!
