Smoked items are made and ready to ship. All other items are Custom Made and require extra time to be made reguardless of the kind of shipping you choose. Turn around time is normally 7 to 9 days but during Holiday season can be 2 to 3 weeks so please don't order an item and pay next day air and think it will be shipped the next day. If you have a need for rush service, please contact us before your item is ordered to make sure we can meet your expectations.
We ship USPS because we feel that it is the most economical way to ship small packages. All our packages are now being insured for free. If your item is lost, it will be replaced. This does not apply to packages that are showing as "Delivered" and you say you didn't get it. That will have to be dealt with on your end with your local Post Office.
