"Big Wally" is a non-competitive offering. After all, who doesn't want a bigger wiener?

CSD and I have reached an accommodation on Big Wally.  If Mark brings the sausage, I will eat it.  Big Wally will be not be in the taste-off, but will be served afterward.

Al - Thank you for moderating your comments.  NTTAWWT

Add a couple pounds more from Thuringer Meats in Arlington Heights, Illinois to the list of entrants.

Possible further entries from Schmeisser's Meats if I get a chance to stop by there this week.

...I just found out what abe froeman's plans are for the "other" sausage she wants to bring.  All I can say is, it might not qualify as a true bratwurst, but when the judging is over and the real eating begins, you will have a hard time keeping MilwFoodlovers away from abe's (note the carefully chosen word here) contribution......


OMG!
Someone's found a way to put Kopp's Frozen Custard in a casing!!!
Hallelujah  brothers and sister's and pass me some extra napkin's please.

At least we won't have those ringers from Ohio here.

Go ahead and order. Send me the bill.


I called Carle's today and it was $55 for 2 pounds of brats delivered to Wisconsin.  I just could not spend that much money for sausage, even your money Michael.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm.  I hadn't thought about that.  So that would be a "No."

But I've got something even better for you Aimey and everyone else, too.

Yeah....maybe we should call it "BratFest '09".  I'm not sure I'd be comfortable parading around in a T-shirt that says "SausageFest".  Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Add two more varieties to the list.  I managed to stop by Schmeisser's Homemade Sausages in Niles, Illinois today and picked up a pound of their standard brat, which they say compares to a Sheboygan, and a pound of their Hungarian version with a little more kick and a good shot of garlic.  Four links each.  Should be enough for an entry and maybe a couple more for the chow down after.

A dish with your raise and promotion in it!

I always say a homemade side dish or a adult beverage to share.  Any favorite of The Boss will be great.

Haha! That did happen in July!

She makes a mean garlic mashed potato (skin on), and made KAJMAK for me this week. We will see what transpires.

As a very interested Side Bar Observer who would love to be there, (Have you checked Airfare's lately), I thought the competition was for WISCONSIN BRATS ONLY. Since you've excluded Ohio Brats---- Shouldn't you also exclude Illinois Brats from the competition just to be fair?? You can serve them, they just should not be entered in the competition.

JRP, correct me if I'm wrong, but, we have not excluded Ohio brats from the contest, only determined that it would be too expensive to ship them in.  Foodbme, if you scroll up toward the upper third of this page, you will see that JRPfeff made contact with Carle's Butcher Shop in Bucyrus, Ohio and found it would cost $55 dollars to have 2 lbs. of brats sent to Wisconsin.

Although Michael Hoffman generously offered to pay for the order, JRP did not feel right spending that much of Mr. Hoffman's money.  Mr. Hoffman has not posted a, "don't be silly, go ahead and spend the dough," reply, so there will be no Ohio brats unless someone else wants to foot the bill.

While it is true that this started out as a "Wisconsin only" event, it has evolved into much more than that.  If you check earlier listings in this thread, you will see that we already have some brats from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and from Elburn, Illinois entered into the contest.  Unless I'm mistaken we are accepting brats from all points that are willing to put themselves up against the Dairy State standard.

Which brings me to my next question: As "a very interested Side Bar Observer", who would love to be there but cannot afford the airfare (entirely understandable), do they make brats in your part of the world?  Would you like to send them in lieu of yourself to be represented at the cook-off?  You wouldn't even need to buy them a seat, just a square foot or so of cargo space underneath the plane would do.

I can vouch for JRPfeff as a fair and honest individual who would treat an Arizona bratwurst the same as he would one from  Wisconsin.  It would recieve equal time and care on the grill and would be judged in the same manner and with the same criteria as all the others entered.

Think about it.  The pride of the population of Arizona is at stake here...

I think most of The Contingent (whaddaya think of the name, Al?) are planning to be there.  From what I've read so far the only absolute no shows are quijote and irisarbor.  We haven't heard from Gyp or annpeeples yet, but other than that I think we're all accounted for.  The 


Hey everybody. Count me in.
I'll be picking up some brats from Eden Meat Market. Unless it's already been listed but I didn't see it. I can also bring some beverage.

Thank You for the clarifications. There are a few places out here that make their own sausages, including Brats. One is "The Pork Shop" in Queen Creek AZ, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxOtqcFXYdo
Another is "Midwestern Meats" in Mesa AZ (He's orginally from IA),  http://www.midwesternmeats.com/index.html
Two in Phoenix
"Schreiners Sausage" has been around for over 50 years http://www.schreinerssausage.com/products.asp
 
"Stanley's Sausage" also has been in business quite a while http://www.stanleys-sausage.com/home.html

I'm thinking about sending some. Refresh my memory-- What's the date of this Shindig and what's the address to ship to if I decide to do it?

Buddy,

Re- The shipping in of "Ringer's" (outside the area Sausage). I thought about sending in some of Green's Texas Czech Sausage from their little store and sausage factory just outside of Temple Texas (and a few Jalapeno/cheese Kolache to accompany the Brat-sized Sausages) but they don't recommend shipping in the summer monthes. (kinda like chocolate!!)

So do what ya can wit whatcha got !

Foodbme, that's gonna be a tough schedule to meet.  The cook-off is this Sunday, September 6th.  You could overnight the brats, but at that point, it might be cheaper for you to buy a plane ticket and hand carry them.  At least that way you'd get to enjoy the fruits of your efforts.

Question -

I don't deal with frozen brats, so  - when do I take them out of the freezer so they'll be fine in time for this shindig? Day before? Night before? Morning of?
