As our catalog states, "The Salt Lick takes pride in its quality and a job done right." All of our meats are
smoked to perfection and sent directly from our kitchen to yours. Smoked meat products do not need to be
frozen. Thawed smoked meats are still of the highest quality and should be placed in the refrigerator for up
to a week if not eaten upon arrival. Smoked products can also be safely stored in the freezer for 60-90 days.
The Salt Lick assures excellent quality and service, and the best barbecue with our mail order shipping
throughout the United States.
STORAGE AND PREPARATION INSTRUCTIONS
Our products are cured and smoked, allowing us to safely ship them to you. As an added measure they are
cryovaced and frozen. Depending on climate conditions the meat product will arrive frozen, partially
frozen, or thawed. Refrigerate as soon as possible after delivery
. If you will not be serving the
product within a week, it should be placed in the freezer.
Allow several days in the refrigerator to fully thaw. In order to retain moisture, keep sealed in original
protective wrap until ready to reheat.
FOR THE VERY BEST FLAVOR WE RECOMMEND THE USE OF AN OUTDOOR GRILL. Coals
should be glowing and without flame. Place meats directly on the rack at least six inches above the coals. In
order for the Brisket to reach an internal temperature of 180 degrees, it will take approx. 45 minutes to one
hour. The Ribs will reheat in 20-30 minutes Occasionally baste with sauce.
If an outdoor grill is not available, products may be reheated in the oven using a wire rack, or flat sheet
with meat side up. Baste occasionally with sauce.
For brisket, sausage, turkey breast and pork tenderloin, place in a preheated 225-degree oven.
hour- trim after reheating
Turkey Breast (3-4 lbs.)..................
1 ½ hours
For ribs, preheat oven to 410
°, baste with Salt Lick Secret Recipe Sauce, place on wire rack and cook for
10 minutes. Remove ribs, reduce heat to 275
°, baste with sauce again and heat for approximately 20 more
To retain original smokehouse flavor and moisture, do not overheat. Cooking times and temperatures can
vary from oven to oven. A meat thermometer should read 180 degrees internally when fully reheated.
ENJOY YOUR MEAL AND THANK YOU FOR CHOOSING
