If you're in the area of SW/Central Ohio, or within driving distance...

On April 19th, I'll be hosting the Sausage Showdown 2009.

Cincinnati has a sausage maker, Kroeger & Sons, that make over 35 varieties of sausage. I'll be getting 32 varieties, for a head to head battle. The sausages will be split into brackets, and pairs will go head to head. The winners of each head to head will go to the next round, for 5 total rounds!

The cost will be $10 for each person. PM me if you're interested, as I need to get a count ASAP. The event will be held at Caesars Creek State Park in SW Ohio.

That's only a small part of the market... it's much bigger, but that's the sausage counter from which the showdown sausage will be purchased.

To clarify...

The showdown is to taste sausage, not to make it. I will be grilling the sausage, and the people there will be eating it and scoring it.

Come to the Sausage Showdown, and you get to try most of them.

It's a drive, but you can go to Findlay Market around noon, then head up a bit farther for the Sausage Showdown to try most of them, and still get home by night time.

Cincinnati has always been known as PORKOPULUS (spelling) The Pork Capital The slauter houses and the boats, trains, trucks, wagons, herders, all bring in the pigs coming into Cincinnati.

This is only 1 of many sausage makers in Cincinnati. Avril & Bieh, Bender meats, Eckerlins, Gerths, Langen, Mackies, stehlins, Wasslers, some dating back to the 1800's They all have very good passed down from generation to generation.

Roger, if you came, you'd pay your $10 and join in. :) Or if you wanted to help cook, you could do that. The $10 is just to pay for the sausage.

That place is worth planning in on a vacation... Just the sausages pictured sound (and look) awesome.

You're reading part of how I'm promoting.

I haven't decided exactly where yet, but most likely the south end, past the dam. There's a great area down there with a shelter.

curt,
back in the 70's, a "sausage showdown" at caesar creek was something entirely different:!:

i'm already booked for a showdown that day 8-)
