Need sausage advice

I'm thinking of making this recipe, but don't know the best type of sausage to use, in terms of what is available kosher. Any advice?

  1. Season's sells International Glatt polish kielbasa , or garlic ring. Season's also had an assortment of Jack's Brand sausages , back when I needed them for a recipe.

      Yes, I just bought Jack's Jerk-flavored sausage just today, and looked at all the available varieties (chorizo, Italian, etc.), but nothing looked right for this recipe. The Polish kielbasa sounds promising, though.

      1. re: queenscook

        Meal Mart and Agristar both make kielbasa that are readily available and would work sublimely for your application. The Turkey sausages mentioned above are smoked and will hijack the subtleties in your flavor profile.

          Thanks, Ari. I'll be on the lookout for these.

          1. re: gotcholent

            There are multiple varieties of Polish kielbasi and some are indeed smoked. Given the generic nature of the recipe, we can't be sure which was the intended flavor profile from the sausage. If he wants a smokey flavor, there shouldn't be anything wrong with going with a smoked sausage.

          You might be best off with the spiciest/garlickiest hot dog you can find. I think A&H makes a garlic dog. There's also an Israeil brand that makes spicy turkey dogs. It has an orange case.

          1. re: DeisCane

            Thanks. I know I like A & H brand; it's my preferred brand of hot dogs, so I'll look for this flavor.

        3. I like the International brand of veal sausage, personally -

          1. if i was cooking at home*, yep international has a keilbasa, but you could probably slice their larger garlic sausages to the same effect, they are kind of like a saucisson d'ail in there cooking applications.
