Karl's Sausage Kitchen - what to try?

So, I have recently realized that we live quite nearby Karl's Sausage Kitchen, but haven't checked it out. I noticed the smoked pork chop post below - what else do hounds recommend there? Thanks!

  1. I've not been disappointed by any of the wursts, but I found the frankfurters terribly bland.

    1. All four of the bratwurst varieties, but especially the Rostbratwurst. Italian sausages, speck, house-smoked bacon, liverwurst, the various little German mustards, pickles, cheese, breads, and rolls. I'm envious of anyone who lives close by.

      1. I go crazy over their smoked bacon. Add some Black Forest Ham to that list too.

        1. Definitely the triple smoked bacon (sold on a rope) and the regular bacon is delicious too. As others have posted, the wursts are great, I'm not a big fan of the Italian sausage (being Italian myself!) they put thyme in theirs, and the hotdogs are very mild. Liverwurst and other lunch meats are great too!!!

          1. Don't miss those jaegerwurst sausages --beautifully smoked and ready to eat. If a Slim Jim died and went to heaven, it would come back as a jaegerwurst.

              I've been driving by this place for years and never stopping, after reading some of the reviews, I'll have to stop in and give it a try.

                Are you talking about the ones that hang on the wall above the register? I just tried those (I thought they were called landjaeger but maybe that's the same thing) for the first time and they are indeed HEAVEN.

                Also second all the bratwursts -- can never decide if the rostbratwurst or the white bratwurst are my favorite -- and the knockwurst, bauernwurst, bacon, triple bacon and black ham. Oh yum, have to take one of those babies out of the freezer right now for lunch....

                  YES GRETCHENS! I got the name wrong. They are called "landjaeger" and I'm off to take one of my own out of the freezer for lunch!
