Canned Meats-Stocking Up-Better Prices
by WRETHAOFFGRID on JULY 25, 2008 - 13 Comments in food

Now that I have had a chance to try some more of the canned meats, I am soooo happy with it, it’s top quality, tasty, spiced just right, not too much, not too little, all I can say is WOW! As you should know, I ordered my cans from the Internet-Grocer, and I am very happy with them, I would highly recommend them, I had planned on ordering case quantities of the canned meats, I checked out the label and found out who cans the meats, found their website (they could use an update-hey I can do it, my services are good and I don’t charge an arm and a leg, maybe a few cases each of your canned meats… hint hint hint!) Anyhoo, I contacted the company to ask about case pricing, and it’s not bad at all. Here is what they sent to me, basically their price for ANY of their varieties are the same:

12 cans per case

27 oz
14 oz
Beef Chunks
$63.00
$38.00
Pork Chunks
$63.00
$38.00
Boneless Turkey
$63.00
$38.00
Boneless Chicken
$63.00
$38.00
Ground Beef
N/A
$38.00

That doesn’t include shipping, but if you give them your zip code, they will be more than happy to give you a quote, they got back to me within 24 hours.

These prices are current as of this date, there are no guarantees that the prices (for the product and/or the shipping) will remain the same.

Here is the contact info:

http://www.grabillmeats.com

Grabill Country Meats
13211 West Street
P.O. Box 190
Grabill, In 46741
260-627-3691
info@grabillmeats.com

They accept credit card. debit card, check or money orders. For shipping to my zip code it is $15.70 for the large cans and $11.13 for the small cans, that is per case, they ship UPS. If you are going to be buying case quantities anyhow, it’s cheaper to go directly through them, but the only thing they do is the meats, if you want any of the other things Internet-Grocer carries, you would need to go through http://www.internet-grocer.net.

The Texan Yup, we are getting some of it, got one more band of rain coming tonight then it is supposed to taper off, may get 1 to 4 inches, we will wait and see.

Jackie Glad you can use the info, I thought it was a good deal, especially if you are going to be buying case quantities anyhow.

WOO HOO, got my order from Grabill meats today. Very nicely double boxed, also so got my mylar bags. boy that was fast. Now just waiting for the bulk items. So far Internet Grocer has pretty decent pricing on bulk grains and such and on their dried foods. But will continue to look for better pricing. Seth

How do you read the “use by” date on bottom of canned meats – example: C3065 -what date does that reflect for usage? Thanks!

13 Wretha { 01.05.13 at 7:50 am }

Thanks for asking Sue, unless it’s a simple one that I can figure out, like a regular date, I just don’t know, so I looked it up and here’s what I found:
