Sausages to grill... best in Los Angeles? (East side preferably)

I am doing a BBQ and am curious people's favorite sausages to grill out ... thanks!

  1. Jeff's Gourmet sausage on Pico. A Kosher place, so no pork, but I love their hot dogs, polish, and chicken and turkey sausages. Roughly $7/lb but well worth it.

      I have taken non jewish co workers to Jeff's and they have always enjoyed the sausages there.I stop there for lunch when I am in the area and often take some home. They have many varieties that they make in house.

    2. Hungarian sausages from Huntington Meats at the Farmers Market. Sorry, it's not eastside, but they're darn good!

      1. The Gourmet Sausage Shop on Olympic, Huntington Meats in The Farmers Market and the Sausage place in Montrose or North Glendale, i forget the name.

          You talking about Continental Gourmet Sausage Co, on San Fernando Rd?

            Not Continental..................Schreiner's Thank You

        2. Schreiner's in Sparr Heights is probably the go-to place on the Eastside. If you're willing to go a little further afield you can really wow a crowd with a full selection from Alpine Village on the Long Beach/Torrance border. If you can go off-rush hours it's a surprisingly quick hop from downtown (about 20 mins.)

          I'd also be remiss not to mention the 'chinese sausages' at the A-grocery Warehouse. They are fat, sweet and loaded with red dye #5. A must for any proper Eastside bbq.

          1. Jody Maroni's is for me an old standby, esp. the kobe dogs and Yucatan chicken sausage, but I'll admit I'm curious about the alternatives on this thread. Available online at and in many supermarkets.

              European Sausages is where I have been going here for years. They have a nice variety of pork sausages, ribs and chickens that are already smoked and ready to eat. I only caution you to watch for an occasional tiny bone piece. It has happened to me a few times over the many years I have been going.
