Raw Meat Subscription Boxes

Delivered to your door fresh or frozen, these subscription boxes have options or include cuts of meat that are suitable for smoking.

Butcher Box

For options galore that are all 100% grass fed beef, free-range organic chicken, humanely-raised pork and wild-caught seafood, Butcher Box gives you the freedom to pick and choose the cuts you want, when you want, while swapping them up month to month.

Shipped frozen for free, you can choose an assorted Butchers Box based on meat type, or, create a custom box of your own choosing (best for smoking).

Ranging from your standards like ground beef and chicken thighs to more specialist cuts like St Louis ribs, pork butt, ground bison, tri-tip and sockeye salmon, there’s lots of options that are just begging to be smoked or grilled.

You can choose how often you’d like boxes to be delivered, change up what’s in them and cancel at any time. But, you can be confident that everything that arrives on your door will be high-quality and surprisingly good value for money.

Porter Road

If you love a good brisket like us, Porter Road is our go-to for getting high-quality meat for the smoker delivered.

Their base boxes like the ‘Best of Porter Road’ and ‘Beef and Pork Basics’, are usually more suited to the grill or week-night meals. But, they’ve got a great assortment of extas including tri-tip, whole beef briskets, spare ribs, pork brisket and pork butt that you can add-on for that weekend smoke.

Or, put through a one-off order of everything good for the smoker.

All of their beef is 100% grass-fed, their chicken is organic and free-range, pork is raised crate-free and their seafood is wild-caught. Nothing has been raised using antibiotics or hormones. And, it’s delivered fresh not frozen (except for some cuts). You’re really getting premium.

There’s even an extra discount for Military, First Responders, Teachers and Government Employees.

Snake River Farms

For unparralelled quality, Snake River Farms ranch to table subscription boxes include graded American Wagyu Beef and Kurobuta Pork.

Like most meat subscription boxes, Snake River gives you a varied assortment of cuts every month or 3 months.

Their selections usually focus on more grilling-based meats like high-quality steaks. But, you might snag yourself some bavette or flat iron steak in one of their beef boxes.

And, you can add on a whole heap of other luxury cuts like gold grade American Wagyu brisket or American Kurobuta baby back ribs.

There’s a lot of choice when it comes to add-ons or one-off purchases.

It all ships frozen, except for dry-aged beef, in eco-friendly packaging direct from their Northwest farms.


Rastelli’s technically isn’t a meat subscription box because everything is sold individually.

But, we’ve included it as one of the best meat subscription boxes for smoking because you can sign up to get your brisket, ribs, sausages and steaks delivered regularly with a 5% off discount.

Rastelli’s was originally a small New Jersey butcher. But, they’ve grown into a large farm to butcher to table business that specialises in responsibly raised, well cut meats and seafoods.

You can practically get anything you want at Rastelli’s. There’s beef, chicken, pork, lamb, veal, seafood and even plant based hot-dogs.

Their meat and seafood is sourced from around the country with the requirement that there’s no hormones, steroids or antibiotics used in rasising the animals.

The quality is exceptional and we love the flexibility that they offer.

Rastelli’s ship frozen and it’s free for orders over a certain amount.


Grass-fed beef is pretty popular at the moment. But, there are advantages to good old grain fed, especially for barbecue. Agridime gives you the choice.
