When shopping with us at the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market this summer, we encourage you to explore the city and experience authentic Texas BBQ, fresh from the pit. Disclosure: We are based in the Kansas City Metro and Kansas City just happens to be home to some of the world’s tastiest BBQ but, since we enjoy the never-ending hunt for the best smoked-to-perfection ribs, we took it upon ourselves to explore some of the Dallas area’s finest BBQ offerings and this is our report. We think your taste buds will be well-pleased.
Pecan Lodge – Deep Ellum, Texas | Deep Ellum, 2702 Main Street, Dallas, TX 75226 – (214) 748-8900 (we recommend the Beef Ribs, Pulled Pork, and Brisket)
Mac’s Bar-B-Que – 3933 Main St., Dallas, TX 75226 – (214) 823-0731 (a bit of history in old Dallas, don’t miss it)
Dylan’s Barbeque Saloon – 2110 W. Northwest Hwy, Ste B, Dallas, TX 75220 – (469) 906-5263 (the ribs! the brisket! the catfish!)
Cattleack Barbeque – 13628 Gamma Rd, Dallas, TX 75244 (near the Galleria) – (972) 805-0999 (limited hours but we have to mention it because it’s that good: Lunch and Take-Out Thurs & Fri 10:30am-2pm, 1st Saturdays Pits & Punch 9:00am, 1st Saturdays 10:30am – 2pm)
Today we are reaching out to inform you of a 3% surcharge to be applied to all orders, including but not limited to Everyday Home, Holiday, Seasonal, and Licensed Collegiate, whether placed with us at market, online, by rep, phone, fax, or email.
Due to the exploding costs of overseas containers, supply and demand of ocean freight, port backups, and global chain-of-logistics breakdowns, ocean freight costs have soared upwards of 200-300% since late 2020. As shipping container and ocean freight costs are calculated into every item we sell, this significant increase in cost was not expected at the time we set pricing for our 2021 lines, nor when sales orders were both placed and accepted. As we watched, and hoped, alongside others in our industry that ocean freight costs would stabilize and drop, the opposite has happened. Now, like other wholesalers, we find ourselves in a never-ending bidding war for overseas container space and prompt delivery times amongst a sea of shortages.
While we have been absorbing as much of this unanticipated freight cost as possible, we are a small, family-owned company and not in a position to continue to do so. Therefore, while doing our best to keep any additional costs passed onto you at a minimum, we are imposing a 3% surcharge on every order in an effort to mitigate these rising ocean freight charges.
Please know that we did not make this decision lightly. The ocean freight issue facing the shipping industry is a global one, affecting an array of consumer goods worldwide. While it is our continued hope that this situation will stabilize, we are working behind the scenes to bring you Hanna’s products as efficiently, timely, and cost-effectively as possible. Thank you for understanding.
With kindest regards,
Ron Dolasky, President & CEO, Hanna’s Handiworks, LLC
