Default Tired of crap store sausage ...

I'm looking for a place to get some good sausage for smoking. I've tried several from Sam's and Costco and needless to say I'm not impressed.

Anyone have any recommendations for the Dallas area? I am even willing to have some shipped to me ...

Thanks,
Gerry

Gotta admit,I got sick of store bought so I started making my own.
Not as hard as it seems and is most rewarding

At some point I will start making my own too but for the time being; I don't have the free time to do it. I commend you for making your own.

Are you looking for smoked sausage to cook on the pit, or fresh sausage?

Default sausage

Store bought for us raw Johnsonville Bratwurst that we smoke.

Edes Custom meats south of Amarillo has raw German in multiple varieties.

Anything else commercial or processed we ignore and just lay a couple Hebrew National or Nathan's dogs on the grill for snacks.

If you can find Conecuh Smoked Sausage locally give that a try. I think its the best widely available sausage.

aint that hard

Making your own sausage is easy and really does not take much time.

See if your local meat market has a house brand you can try. Mine does and it's pretty decent.

+1. I haven't gotten store bought since I started making my own.

If you have any good butchers around, they might make their own and it will probably be pretty good. Also local farmer's markets sometimes have small sausage makers selling their stuff, and that can be good as well.

I'm not sure if I've had the specific brand that Bluedawg is talking about, but I remember eating fanfarkingtastic sausage from Elgin when I lived in Austin.

Man in the Dallas area there gotta be a bunch of HEB's.
Slovacek garlic
Country boys pico de gallo
Poffenburgers beef/pork jalapeno
I'm lucky to live right down the road from the most awesomest BBQ place there is. Chappell hill bakery and they have every type of fresh and precooked/smoked sausage a man could ask for. They didn't at first but my buddy is the manager there and instead of us having to make big batches at home, he just makes the recipes we give him and we pick it up a week later.
Seriously, this place is a BBQ owners dream come true.
