Same here. As a resident of Wisco, I approve this. It's a kraut time this is mentioned.

Bratwurst is not made from children, contrary to what my mother told me.

If it means anything, I submitted this to the business tab or so I think.

/might have been drinking
//I swear to the deity of your choice that it was the business tab
///laughing
////would rather have a good brat on its own than one that is gimmicked

Time to get off of fark and go to bed;

Read that as "Erotically  flavored bratwurst gain market share. Industry observers say they never sausage a thing" and my only thought was, "Brats are German, so sweaty rubber and leather flavor?"

/I apologize to all Germans everywhere.
// Damnit now I want a brat anyway.

Is there any good sausage of any variety in the US.  Johnsonville seems to carry too much fat and I dont trust chicken sausage.  Walmart drove my local butcher away years ago.

Yeah, order it online.
No matter where you live, there's probably somewhere within 100 miles offering wild boar or venison sausage.  I haven't had a bad one yet.

Too much fat? Do you parboil them first?  That takes off a lot of it.

And then however you are preparing them (frying, charbroiling or whatever), you can rinse them in your favorite (not quite boiling) beer afterwards to take off a lot more .Back in the day, the beer rinse was essential to get some of the char off if you were grilling them.  The "Beer" chemical flavor they advertise doesn't provide the same rinse.

great. my beer and bratwurst diet is going to be even easier to stay on now.

When will we Americans wake up to the deliciousness of currywurst?
 
2013-06-23 07:57:40 AM  
If you flavor it differently, its no longer bratwurst, its a different type of wurst

They mean to tell us that we can put whatever we want in a roll of ground up meat? What a novelty...

This guy does good work  http://www.mikesstarmarket.com/theme/1/index.cfm  as does this guy  http://www.eurosausage.com/Pages/default.aspx . Of course they're about a four hour drive apart so unless you're like me and live in one city and have family in the other, it's tricky.  And you're right not to trust Johnsonville.

Meisfield's has been my goto for years. Bunzel's mentioned in the article is decent as well. If you want cheap for a little league team, the Klemet's outlet on the south side. Obviously Usingers. Karl's country market isn't bad but very expensive. Fox brothers does have some good stuff. Johnsonville is severely over rated. Heck they often are sold at McDonald's. avoid Old Wisconsin except for their cheddar wurst and wieners.

The punsters in this thread can kishke my ass.
 
2013-06-23 10:29:00 AM  
I'm lucky; there's a family-run place that makes German-style sausage and lunchmeat that is fantastic.  I think I'll place an order.

I've said it before:  Just like what happened with beer, once Americans develop a taste for good sausage, it will explode onto the marketplace.

In canada we've had a wide variety of flavoured sausages for years. My favorites include sun-dried tomato, italian, and donair sausage. I hate honey garlic sausages though, ick...

Currywurst as I have had it locally is just a regular pork sausage (not breakfast type, think the size of kielbasa ) with ketchup that has had an infusion of curry and paprika. The bottle of currywurst sauce I once picked up for the kid was pretty bland.

You're crazy. Or I'm Cajun. (Why not both?)

Andouille is delicious. It's spicy smoked pork. How could you not like that?... Unless you accidentally ate Andouillette, in which case you have my sympathy because that shiat is French, and tastes like someone puked in a sausage casing.

been promoting it for the breweries pub.

we're also throwing a big sausage fest, the best of the wurst festival at the brewery on the 29th of june, four local breweries, and 5 local butchers competing for the best brat in richmond

but any ways... curry wust, parboil the brat in beer, drain and slice into 1/2 rounds. dust with flour and fry
place these over a bed of french fries and apply the curry sauce.

there are several variations, but the easiest, and most say, traditional is simply 2tble to 1 cup ketchup heated to a simmer. put it in a squeeze bottle in the fridge to use at your convience.

you can also buy the stuff premade in various european markets, or online

The only thing I really wanted from my wedding registry was a grinder/stuffer (that's what she said) attachment for my stand mixer, and I got it. Still need to break it in, so make with the sausage recipes...

Yeah, it's not new here either
 
2013-06-23 01:19:30 PM  
Exotic bratwurst ? That's nothing new. I've been making homemade game bratwurst for years. The key is adding just enough pork fat to the venison, elk, black bear etc. To much you can't taste the game and to little leads to a dry wurst. Which is the worst.

I used to live in England and contrary to popular belief they actually had some amazing sausages as well as offering very good versions of German and French sausages. So Im not used to having to take a sausage through two or three steps to get it good.

Personally, I prefer the big pork grills or the big beef grills, but that certainly does explain the taste of their sausages.

Hey wisconsin, american bratwurst is a certain sort of seasoning blend and is not synonymous with sausage, we should know this.

l2.yimg.com

Only one of these is a brat. Pineapple craisin pork sausage is delicious im sure, but its not a bratwurst.

Heh, Andoullie is my most favorite of the cased meats. Followed closely by chorizo.

My MIL works for Usingers, we always have a freezer full. Its pretty great.

I am simply not grasping the concept of "flavored" bratwurst outside of the only legally sanctioned one, which is bratwurst boiled in beer and onions before grilling.
