Carnivore Club Review and Discount
is a subscription box for meat lovers! I was very excited when Carnivore Club
offered me a box to review. Our family loves meat of all kinds. Carnivore Club
is based out of Canada, so people in the United States and Canada can get this box! Carnivore Club
sends 4 to 6 different selections of cured and smoked meats, charcuterie and jerky from across the planet. All the meat from Carnivore Club
comes from independent farms in the Midwest. I love the artisan nature of this box, and that the meat isn't packed with chemicals. It is $50.00 a month, but you can save $10.00 when you use the code “boxmom

Cost: $50.00 a month
Coupon: Use the code “boxmom” to save $10.00 on your first box.
What's in the box? Every month members of the Carnivore Club will receive 4 to 6 different selections of cured and smoked meats, charcuterie and jerky from across the planet
When does it ship? Last week of the month
All the meat from this box came from the Smoking Goose
in Indiana. You can find them HERE
The box was shipped in a silver padded envelope, I also believe it is insulated. Everything was well protected.
I loved the box, it looks like a piece of wood.
The information card includes pictures, names and information about each meat. There is also a monthly paring suggestion. This month, Carnivore Club
recommends the 2010 Sofos Red Blend from clubw.com.
Salty, porky flavors go great with the Sofos. Carnivore Club included a code so you could get your third bottle free form ClubW
Club W included an ice pack with the meat. The ice pack was still cold, along with the meat. C is very particular about food temperature, and he thought the meat was packaged well.
From Carnivore Club “Spiked with black peppercorns and wrapped in Smoking Goose's house cured bacon, Cold Smoked Elk Terrine begins with elk raised on wide open pasture at Carley Elk Farm in Atlanta, Indiana. Trimmed by hand, this country style terrine brings layers of flavor after a long, low, and slow cold smoke over fruit wood.”
I have never had pate before this, and I was a bit nervous. The name sounds stranger but it had a great flavor. We had it over crackers and you could take the smoky flavor.
From Carnivore Club: ” A bloomy rind develops as this Sopperssata ages slowly and under the pressure of pressing. The coarsely ground pork salami is about 3 inches in diameter and flecked with ground clove, ginger and nutmeg. Soppressata is a staple of any cured meat lover's daily must haves”
This was one of C and I's favorite meats. I normally don't like salami, but the added spices made this taste very good.
From Carnivore Club ” Named after the neighborhood “Dodge City”, this salami is strewn with fennel pollen and stuffed pink peppercorns for the quick pop of anise. It's a lean giants that is speckled with a quilted patten of back fat. This salami uses all natural sewn casing, keeping with Smoking Goose's commitment to using the best ingredients available to produce great products.”
C and I were not fans of this one, the flavor and texture were just a little too different for us.
Guanciale Pork Jowl
From Carnivore Club: “Heavily spiced with bay leaves, garlic, juniper berries, sea salt, brown sugar, and black peppercorns, these cured hog jowls are more flavorful and densely textured than their belly-cut cousin, pancetta”
Wow, this pork was amazing. C and I both loved this and this was our favorite meat out of the box. We cooked it up and it was fantastic with eggs. I will be ordering more of this!
From Carnivore Club ” The Delaware Fireball was one of the Smoking Goose's first unique creations. It gets it's name from the street where the meatery's public butcher shop is located in Indianapolis and the salami's fiery taste. This crepitate salami of coarsely ground pork is packed with crushed chilies and garlic. It's wrapped in a caul fat, dry aged and cold smoked in an oven of hickory wood, making one spicy salami.”
This had a great flavor and I didn't actually taste the spices, until I swallowed. It has a serious spice to it, but I nice flavor.
|The Whole Box
Final Thought: This is a great unique box. I am sure I got $50.00 worth of meat from this box. Carnivore Club is a great box for those people who enjoy charcuterie. The meat is not only tasty but comes from independent farms in the Midwest. This box exposed C and I to many different meats, that we may never have tried otherwise. I love that the Smoking Goose, is located in Indiana (my home state). I also love, that everything is independent and done with such artistry. The pork jowl is my favorite from this box, and I will be getting more. This will make a great addition to our Christmas breakfast.
