Does anyone have a favourite supplier?

  1. Akhavan (NDG & other locations) has homemade spicy-chicken sausages that are delicious. Milano (St-Laurent below Jean-Talon) also makes some Italian style chicken sausages that are yummy - with basil & tomato if I recall.

      Thank you kpzoo, these recs are great! I love the idea of Akhavan's homemade spicy chicken!

    2. Volailles et Gibiers Fernando on Roy in the plateau also make a spicy chicken sausage

      1. Some day I'll have to try Akhavan - despite the obvious problem of crossing town with chicken sausages in tow!

        Was just going to suggest the Milano ones, as they are thin. Fernando has lovely chicken sausages as well, also turkey and duck, but they are a bit thicker. No problem for a bbq though - I've done them many times on my Tfal grill, which is far from ideal.

        1. Tony at Boucherie Westmount makes great homemade Chicken,Lamb,Pork,Veal and Merguez Sausages.Tel :514-481-1811

          1. Thank you all for the recommendations. Just to follow up - I went to the NDG Akhavan this afternoon but they were out of the chicken sausages! So, if you really want them, perhaps call ahead!

            I am going to try Fernando on Roy this afternoon - the BBQ is tomorrow night, and I will report back with what I end up purchasing and, most importantly, how they taste!

              Oh no, SO sorry you missed out on the Akhavan sausages! I go there almost every week and only once or twice have they ever been sold out, bad timing - sorry!

                It is Ramadan now, so a time of major get-togethers (after sundown) for all (majoritarily) Muslim peoples.

                I'd love to try those but it is a long trek home (by bus and m├ętro or on my bicycle) with chicken sausages.

                But I've always liked Fernando's poultry sausages.

            2. Not quite sure the reason you want CHICKEN sausages, but... Super C has Marco Angelo brand turkey burgers in the frozen chest for $10/bag. These puppies are pretty good on the BBQ...
              OK, NOT chicken
              NOT thin sausage
              just thought I'd throw that one out there...

                I have to agree that the spicy chicken sausages from Akhavan are very, very good.
                They are the main reason I go there even if it is close to an hour drive for me.
                Their Tandoori chicken is the second reason.
                There are not that many good chicken sausages out there, what a shame...

              2. Thank you all again for the feedback! It seems that the universe was conspiring against me enjoying some spicy chicken sausages! I went to Volailles and Gibiers Fernando on Saturday morning and they were completely out of spicy chicken sausages (fresh and frozen!) Luckily they had some of their normal chicken sausages and they were delicious!

                I will definitely be making the trek to Akhavan again to try their chicken sausages. We also purchased mince (ground beef) for burgers from Akhavan and was impressed with the quality.

                Thanks for the rec for turkey burgers porker, I will have to try those next time!

                  Super C does not stock these in winter months, so if you want to try 'em, get them before November.
