Best Sausage Available? (talking About Food Here)

Mon Apr 18, 2005 3:39 pm

So before anyone makes any stupid remarks, this isn't one of these gay threads  Wink

I was following a Galtee truck on the way to work this morning *yawn* on which it was mentionned that they made "Ireland's best sausages since XXXX".

Having tasted them and having been unimpressed, what are the best available then ?

My guess is they must be German or of German origin.

Your take on this ?

A New Zealand sausage company has won the worlds best sausage competition about 10 times in the last 12 years. Beef sausages seem to be the winning formular for the New Zealand company. The same New Zealand beef is also very popular in Japan. Sometimes it can sell for upto $130.

The world's best sausages are reputedly made by O'Hagans.

Bill O'Hagan is a South African who set up in London specifically to create the best sausages possible

and has won plenty of awards for his MRM and additive free speciality sausages.

I like the sausages from KwikSave (something like 20 for 70-90p), those Irish ones (I forget their name, but they are more expensive) and those found within Morrisons' own baked beans and sausages. Yum.  Big grin

I don't care, Diesel: all I know is that they're far superior in taste than anything else I've tried (bar the Irish ones - Richmond). I do not like the finest range ones, say from Sainsbury's or Morrisons, as they normally include other things, like sage or whatever it is.

For some reason, when it comes to English sausages, I actually prefer the cheaper cereally ones (maybe its a boarding school flashback, who knows - and NO English Public School nudge-nudge wink-wink innuendo please !)

I love South African boerewors (again, please no jokes about "so vars hy hang nog aan die boer" !) - we used to have a boerie roll trailer parked outside SA Airways Towers in Jo'burg called "George", usually referred to as "Smokin' George" because of the smoke from his braai, anyway this guy made the best boerie rolls in the known universe - mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm !!! With mustard, barbecue sauce and garlic sauce. Ahhhh fond memories.

I also like bratwurst and other Germanic style sausage (oh God, it is impossible to answer this thread without opening up gaping potholes of innuendo for Kirkie and Pe@rson to leap into boots and all).

Pepperoni from Chris Brothers Deli in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia is the best. They used to sell it in the mess at CFB Shearwater 25 cents a piece, a couple of those and some Keiths Draft was a great lunch.

I think you may find that is meat! Most cheap sausages in the UK have a meat content of 60% or less, the rest is cereal and seasoning. The "finest" ranges usually have a meat content of 80% or higher Smile

The best sausages I've had in the UK are "Lincolns" from a butcher in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire. They just melt in the mouth. I'm not sure if Black Pudding is a sausage, if so, the finest I've had was in a restaurant in Brussels, served a starter with a caramelised onion "jus".
