Kosher 'sausage'

Hi all,
I found on a previous post on this site a place in LA called Jeff's Gourmet that has several interesting sausages, including smoked chicken apple and chicken cilantro, among others. Anybody know of places in Brooklyn, Manhatten, even the 5 Towns, that has something like this? (We keep a strictly kosher home, so while I know this board isn't about what is kosher, we need a reliable hechsher).

Thanks all!

  1. Neshama sells a decidedly more limited variety of sausages at retail markets -- some are turkey/chicken but they also have a decent glatt merguez sausage. Neshama's chicken/apple is very good as are most of thei other varieties. Their web site says they're available at King's, Wegman's and Whole Foods on the East Coast.

      Neshama sausages are also available online:

      I pay $5.99 a package in Chicago, don't know if the East Coast or online vendors mark them up for shipping or because they can. There's ultimately a price point that makes them unattractive.

    2. Also, Griller's Pride out of Atlanta will ship you their delicious South African -style sausage but it will easily add at least a couple of dollars per pound just for shipping:

      1. I've seen the Neshama sausages at Brach's in Lawrence

        1. Nashama is good and you will probably find it near you - the last time I was at Heff's and they will ship frozen sausages -

          1. May not work geographically for you, but:

            Woodbury Kosher, in Hicksville (on the Plainview border - next door to Bagel Boss) has delicious homemade sausage. i've only had the hot kind. I assume it's beef, but haven't asked. I also don't know what other varieties they have -- I tried the hot sausage once and since then always need to have a package in my freezer.

              Since the original poster specified that s/he needs a "reliable hechsher," I would just point out that the mashgiach listed on their website is not one that all agree is reliable.
