Sausage help

  • 8

I've got an uncle in Dallas who wants good sausage (BBQ style) sent to him. Any recommedations for local sausage (Please, no Southside or Meyer's in Elgin), preferrably from a place that has regular and jalapeno sausage? Also, if they ship, that would be a huge bonus!

Thanks y'all.

  1. Smoked, dry cured, cooked or raw?

      Cooked. We found some. Chisolm Trail BBQ in Lockhart is shipping it. Thanks!

    2. I really like the sausage from Hudson's on South Congress if you want it made in Austin.

      However, some of the best sausage is V&V in Flatonia. They sell both the pork and pork/jalepeno at all HEBs. It's raw and needs to be cooked.

      Another, I just found at the Circle C HEB was fabulous. I can't remember the name but a sticker said it was served at a presidential inauguration dinner. It is raw also. THey had a few of varieties...beef, pork, venison, garlic, jalepeno, etc.

        That probably would be Holmes which was served at one of Dubya's inaugurals I think.

        In this case, 'in the heart of Texas' means Pleak, south of Rosenberg on TX 36. They're in all the supermarkets here (Houston).

        I'm another fan of V&V.

      2. I'm partial to Coopers in Llano. Great jalapeno sausage that's like a kielbasa.

          1. By the way, y'all, we ordered from Chisolm Trail. Floyd, the owner, shipped a bunch the next morning via Express Mail. Getting rave reviews on it. (And the rest of their BBQ is phenomenal too!)

            1. The best Jalapeno sausage I've ever had was at Black's in Lockhart, but, alas, they ruined it by adding cheese to it. Venison sausage is a good thing to look into, I had the Hudson's recently and thought it quite terrific, though the most memorable is the "sausage lady" from East Texas who shows up at the Saxet gun show on the third weekends of the month, where Best Buy used to be on 290 half a mile east of I-35.
