** We cannot ship this cheese outside of the contiguous 48 United States at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience **

Please take caution when selecting as this is a refrigerated food item that *cannot be returned. Regardless of when an order is placed, we ship refrigerated items strategically to ensure rapid transit. As a result, you may see your shipping label is created; however, we may not pass your refrigerated items off to the carrier until the beginning of the following week. This is to ensure your order arrives as cold as possible.

Our Bearded Butcher, high temperature cheddar cheese is made specifically to withstand smoking, cooking and heating temperatures up to 400°F before melting.

Non-melting cheese is a great choice for making brats, summer sausage, franks, hot dogs, burgers patties, or meat sticks because the cheese will maintain its shape, even while the meat is cooking.

Our high temperature cheddar cheese comes diced into ¼ inch pieces and packed to allow for freezing and long term storage.

Each package is 2.5 pounds. Made in USA.


  • Use 2.5 pounds of cheese per 25 pounds of meat (or 10% cheese weight per meat weight)
  • Add cubed cheese to ground meat after final grind before stuffing or forming
  • Excess cheese can be frozen if needed. Freeze flat for best results.

*Orders with refrigerated items are shipped with a flow chart to help determine acceptable condition when received. For orders that were fulfilled within our terms and without error (such as, for a change of mind or a mistake made at the time of purchase by the customer, or any similar issue) we will not refund the order and the order cannot be returned. If an order is shipped with an error on our part, we will be certain to make it right and you can contact our customer service for help.

So happy with the High Temperature Cheddar Cheese 2.5lb.

The cheese came still mostly frozen and the ice pack still completely frozen! The packaging was AMAZING they really insulate it so well-- more companies should package that way! The customer service is great- when I placed my order for 4 days there were no updates. I went to their online chat and someone helped me and got me the new tracking number it got switched to and I was very pelased! It tastes amazing and it got here just in time for my husband to make his summer sausage for his birthday!
