This is the first time I've bought the random mix. It's a lot of meat for me to contend with at one time, but it all fit very nicely into my already full freezer. I'm very impressed with the value for money, it's really incredible. The pork belly cuts I got are very lean and will be good for so many dishes. I may try to make bacon! I also like that I got two smaller portions of exotic meats -- things I'd never try without having them sent to me this way. In the meantime, this will keep my own exotic cooking juices flowing for a long time. Thanks to the Meat Guys!

Unbelievable value, excellent quality
I just bought my first 5 kg random mix and it's great! Cooking up a spicy pork sausage now to see where it stands on my personal spicy scale. Lots of excellent quality in my pack, including beef stew meat, 3 packs of sausages, and a few exotic meats that I want to try. Very impressive, and so worth it. You really can't go wrong by ordering this. Try it! I think you'll like it.
Just like Christmas!
I've been ordering these packs for a few years now and have always been happy with the contents. I've never received pigs tails or feet (wish I would since I'm the only one in my family who likes them.) Each time I've got a wide variety of goodies, I think they are great value!
I order one of these a month, even if I say to myself I might not again. And that only really happened once after getting something I wasn't sure what to do with. That one box, thanks to a couple of other things as well, made that one time a little disappointing, but every other time (many now) I've felt it's definitely worth it, and have even learned a few new recipes out of the whole affair.
Just got my first 5kg mega mix surprise box. I'm very happy with what I got, worth much more than what I paid. A good and well balanced variety.

I ordered a mega mix set 5kg from the meat guy on Tuesday and it arrived just as I had requested.
I have to say that I'm well chuffed with the contents. It's like they read my mind. I read other reviews and was worried if I would get pig tails and pig hooves do I read up on some recipes on how to cook this kind of stuff. I was prepared.
When opening the box, it felt like Christmas. What a pleasant feeling that is.
I got two packets of premium minced beef (my wife's favourite 'cottage pie', sausage meat, veal chop, pork shank, a couple of pies, huge pork shoulder steak, pork chops, crocodile cubes (BBQ skewers) and Irish sausages!
I'm well chuffed!
I realize that I signed up for the "mystery" when I bought this product, but I got pig tails... and with all the raving about how the purchase would be worth it in value, I thought it was worth a try. I suppose pig tails qualify as meat. I checked the product listings for what was said about pig tails... and basically it says, if you order these, we assume you know what to do with them. (I looked up what to do with them, and there's really nothing about pig tails that I want to eat). So, although we enjoyed some of what was in the box... the pig skin with fat and the pig tails made the discount less than worth it for us. I love what I've ordered otherwise, so I'll just stick to choosing my own. I think maybe the description should mention you could get "parts" in addition to meat? Or maybe I'm just wrong about what constitutes meat, it would not be the first time I've been wrong :-)
I do not want to give this a favorable review, because I do not want you ordering this. I have ordered it close to a dozen times over the years. The price recently went up, but it's still full of what I want. I LOVE the variety of minced sausage flavors! That is what I always hope for. Today, I got a croc claw!!! And brussel sprouts! I've gotten a whole chicken, tons of pork belly and pork loins. Even T-bone ends. If it's available, it will always be added to my cart...a few times, I've clicked it twice!
Was super excited when I saw my other friends' posts on FB of their meat boxes, but I was disappointed with mine. Got some sausage, chicken and a bit of lamb chops and 2.5 kg of pig tails and feet. Was not aware that leftovers were going to be included in this.
One of these just arrived. WOW! Absolute bargain! A good amount of belly pork in my box but that's great as I love slow-roasted belly pork. Great for but a no kaki and char shu as well. 10 out of 5 ranking!
I'm a huge fan of this surprise set because I have no idea what I'll be getting. I enjoy the fun of figuring out what to cook after looking into the box to see what Meat Guy has sent me, so every time I order it, I get to have a different experience. I've had pig tails and skin in the past too, but they're really good too if you know what kind of dish to use them for! (And it's always fun to try something new). I ordered a batch about a month ago, so I'll definitely be ordering this again once I've finished.
