One of the best parts of summer is easily the backyard barbecues get-togethers — and, of course, all that delicious, fresh-off-the-grill food. There are the requisite hot dogs and hamburgers, but cookouts also mean grilled steak, sausages, pork loin, scallops, shrimp and so much more meaty goodness. It’s something many of us look forward to as soon as the weather starts to get warm…but shopping for that BBQ? Well, that’s not always fun — especially if you’ve got limited time to shop. Fortunately, you don’t need to race from store to store grabbing your essentials when you can get all the meat you need — from staples to specialty cuts — delivered right to your door. Plus, most of the sites offer sustainably sourced, high-quality meats at competitive prices and low shipping fees (or in many cases, free shipping) to help you get your stash without breaking the bank. Check out our top picks below!

Porter Road

Founded by two Nashville chefs who were dissatisfied with the availability of high-quality local meat, Porter Road is dedicated to providing a superior product. That means visiting the farms for quality control to hand-cutting the meat at their Kentucky facility. You can make purchases a la carte, but we like the Best of Porter Road Box, which is bursting with meaty goodness. You’ll get two dry-aged steaks, two pork chops, 2 lbs. of dry-aged ground beef, 1 lb. of bacon, 1 lb. of country sausage, and 1 lb. of chorizo sausage — all for $100.

Crowd Cow

Never wait in a grocery checkout line again! CrowdCow is a meat subscription box where you control what you get, so there’s no waste. Maybe you want to add bone-in pork chops this month. Or perhaps you want to try the venison hot dogs. It’s fully customizable — and completely delicious.

Mr. Steak

With a name like Mr. Steak, you know they take their meat very seriously. Not sure what to get? There’s a quiz that’ll help you decide if porterhouse is your cut, or if you’re more of a filet person. If you decide you want a little of everything, then you’ll want to pick up the USDA Prime Family Favorites Box. It’s got a 10-oz. center-cut filet mignon, 12-oz. boneless ribeye steak, 14-oz. New York strip steak, plus two flat iron steaks and a pack of four burgers.
