Whether you’re hosting your first-ever Memorial Day barbecue this year or keeping up with a longtime tradition, you probably dread the idea of fighting through crowds at the grocery store before the long weekend. That’s why we recommend ordering all your BBQ meat and seafood online. It’s easier and will likely score you higher quality food for your guests.
Crowd Cow is our favorite meat delivery service for several reasons: It offers a wide selection of sustainably sourced meats and seafood, all products are free from added hormones and antibiotics, and the brand is committed to environmental standards (like offsetting carbon emissions and using recyclable packaging). Factor all that good stuff into the ability to order steaks from the comfort of your couch, and Crowd Cow becomes hard to resist.
Need more convincing? Crowd Cow is currently offering up to 20% off of select cuts as part of its Memorial Day sale. Here are some of the best barbecue-friendly options to add to your cart.
1. Burger patties
It’s just not a cookout without burgers. But these aren’t your typical patties; they’re made from grass-fed AngusPure Special Reserve beef sourced from Broadleaf Farms in New Zealand. That farm’s unique environment results in beef that’s lean, low in pH, and ultra tender—thanks to the 21-day wet-aging process.
2. Hot Italian sausage
This spicy sausage hails from Pederson’s Natural Farms, a brand that specializes in humanely raised, vegetarian-fed meat that’s free from preservatives, artificial ingredients, and nitrates. Serve these piquant sausages with grilled veggies and watch them disappear.
3. St. Louis Spareribs
If you’re planning to pull out your smoker this Memorial Day weekend, you can’t forget to bring ribs to the party. This rack of spareribs is meaty, tender, and full of flavor. Try it with a spicy dry rub or sweet-and-savory glaze to impress your guests.
4. Beef hot dogs
It’s practically un-American to omit hot dogs on your Memorial Day weekend menu. But if you’re iffy on hot dogs in general, this Crowd Cow version might change your mind. These are made from pasture-raised beef and rich in vitamins A, B, and E. They also boast a rich flavor profile that matches seamlessly with your favorite condiments and toppings.
