Q: Hi - i’m considering getting this for a last-minute birthday present for a friend. What are the chances that if I order this right away, it could be shipped this week instead of next week?Asked by Kelly C., January 2020
Hello! Apologies for the delay there has been an issue with CrateJoy on this Q&A feature and my responses have not been getting through. The answer is yes. If you could reach out directly using the "Contact Seller" button at the bottom of the page I can make sure we are on the same page. Thank you!
First box: Georgia Pork Butt. The rub and recipe were great! Although, more messy and time consuming than I thought it was going to be. It came out delicious! I never imagined being able to smoke a pork butt on my gas grill. I really appreciated receiving the basting mop, as I did not have one, and it also came with a can coozie. I do wish there were a month to month plan rather than making someone choose a term plan. The cost could be lower or include shipping.
Second box: Austin Beef Rib. Just received my box today! I can't wait to make these and they sound a lot less messier than the butt. It came with a digital meat thermometer, recipe and a package of the rub. <3
I bought two different subscriptions to this box - one for my brother and one for my best friend. My brother loves cooking and he really enjoyed this gift box I sent him. He was really impressed with the detailed instructions and said the recipes were awesome. My best friend was obsessed with the rub. She said there was a good amount of leftovers and she put it in everything: pita chips, hummus, dip. Would definitely purchase again!
The bought this as a gift for my father-in-law. Absolutely loved this as a gift. The boxes were delivered very timely and were nice surprises each month. The variety of runs and wood chips made the boxes interesting and wanting more. I believe I’ll be buying another subscription for myself. Highly recommend at least a 6 month subscription to really get a good selection of products.
I was highly disappointed with the three boxes sent as a gift. The “special gift” included in the boxes is cheap (One was a meat thermometer I found on Amazon for $7) and the presentation is severely lacking. Some of the rubs were tasty, however the overall quality of the box as a whole left much to be desired. I was excited for the recipient to receive his first box, but was so embarrassed to have spent money on these products after seeing what arrived. I had hoped this would be a great alternative to a regular one time gift, but I would have been better off just giving cash.
Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear that our box did not meet the expectations we set. The biggest value of our boxes lies in the detailed cooking directions for the unique BBQ recipes and the custom rub crafted to match that recipe. Our accessories are intended to be complementary for that particular recipe or be items not many folks will have, not necessarily be premium BBQ accessories. The grill top thermometer you noted was an important part of the Memphis Pork Rib recipe since it is a hot and fast cook. For experienced BBQ-ers who already know these recipes or those who are not as interested in the recipes it may be a disappointment. ...
I purchased this box for my husband for Father's Day. I thought it would be a great gift since he is really into grilling and smoking meat. On the plus side, you receive a lot of spices with each box and the directions are clear. We were both disappointed with the accessories that came with each box though. Also, beware if you purchase either the 3 month or 12 month option as it will automatically auto renew.
Update: BBQ Box reached out to me and provided great customer service. I appreciate them contacting me, refunding the next set of boxes, and asking for feedback to improve future boxes.
Thank you for your feedback. I apologize for the poor experience with your renewal and I'm sorry that you were unhappy with our boxes. We have refunded the renewal price. I have also sent you an email with this information and a few questions regarding the boxes so that we can gain additional feedback. We appreciate any insights from our customers as they allow us to improve on our products or service and I look forward to hearing back from you.
Regarding the renewal settings on all subscriptions there is the option to set it to auto-renew or not at the time of purchase and there should also be a renewal reminder email sent a couple days before the scheduled renewal date...
I have been BBQing for years and but I have always used store bought rubs and they never tasted right. My meat came out good but not great. My BBQ Box took my BBQing skills the next level. The rub is nothing short of incredible and the recipes are on point and precise. Basically, this has given new energy to my BBQing hobby and inspired me to explore new areas. Love it and I would like an opportunity to buy the rub separately after I run out.
Not worth the money. Will not renew this box.
Thank you for the review. I am sorry that our boxes did not meet your expectations. I will reach out to you directly to get a little more feedback. We appreciate all feedback and are always looking for ways to improve our boxes.
This was a gift that shipped to my house instead of the gift recipient. VERY disappointed.
Hello! We are sorry that you were unhappy with this shipment. We shipped to the only address we had for this subscription. I have reached out directly to your email to see if we can get this corrected! Thank you!
I received a monthly subscription as a Christmas present, so I have been getting these for 4 months now. Well, I live in Georgia where the weather has been unusually, let’s just say not good. So finally, last weekend I had the opportunity to do one of these up. I chose the Georgia Pork Rub (go figure). Now, included in this box was a large bag of rub, a very nice cotton basting mop (which is awesome cause I didn’t have one), and some very good directions. So, I am a novice at bbq, I can grill and cook but never really got into bbq and smoking. This recipe has definitely changed my mind. If I had no other bbq to eat ever again, I would be satisfied. The directions were simple and not too complicated and the final product was better than I could ever have expected. Being new in this realm, I had a couple of hiccups along the way. I found out that the thermometer on my smoker was off about ¾ of the way through so it was taking longer than expected. I ended up stopping short because of time and ended up with sliced rather than pulled, but I would do it the same way again without flinching. Because of my timidity, I stuck with a milder apple wood than the recommended hickory (next time I’ll try the hickory). I also underused...
I purchased a three month subscription for my husband because he loves grilling and smoking. From the description, this sounded like the perfect box for him. But we were very underwhelmed by what we received. Our first box (which we did receive a refund on) was covered in ants. The rub was a recipe we already use, but it's a good one and the plastic shaker was pretty cool.
Skip forward to the second month, we received a rib rub (also very good) and four paper/cardboard containers. I get that it's BBQ and you're trying to give the feel of that, but seriously? A bag of rub and PAPER containers??
I would not recommend this box and it's only getting two stars because the rubs are good, though not worth the cost of the box.
Hello! I am sorry that you were not happy with the contents of your box but happy to see you enjoyed the rubs. I have recently taken ownership of My BBQ Box and I will strive to ensure that each month we not only ship out a quality custom crafted rubs and step-by-step cooking instructions, but also a special gift that will add value and help you along with your barbecuing experience. I am happy to hear all feedback, good or bad, so that we can promptly address issues, learn, and make changes where needed. Thank you.
We'll be cooking up bone-in chicken thighs with the skin on in this recipe. This is how championship teams winning at the highest level of the BBQ cookoff circuit prepare their chicken for turn in. The key is creating a crispy skin on chicken, which is no small feat. It’s going to take time, a steady hand, and patience. But don't worry My BBQ Box has got you!
A storied New Orleans restaurant in operation for over 100 years is where world famous “Barbecue” Shrimp originated. Despite “barbecue” in the name they prepare shrimp in a pan over a burner. Not on a bbq, smoker, or pit. While the debate may rage over what is BBQ and what is not, we show you how to actually use your grill (or smoker, or pit) to make shrimp that rival the original. This is a great dish to prepare on weekday night because it takes no time to cook.
