A good chorizo makes a breakfast perfect. San Jose, California has some pretty good ones, available at local Mexican grocery stores.

    As a native of Rochester i can attest to the fact that Zweigel's Hots are the best, from the red and white pop-opens to the frankfurters. When I lived in northern california i would have family members send met "zweigel care packages". YOU JUST GOTTA LOVE 'EM!!!!!! especially with mustard, onions and the only made in rochester hot sauce.....Don & Bobs, Vic & Irv's and the infamous Nick Tahou's..

        I am originally from Paterson (grew up there). Would love the recipe for Colonial Grill or Falls View's sauce. Will be looking for your posting. I think Libby's is the only one remaining in Paterson. We've tried the Falls View on 46, not as good as the original.

            Back in 1980 we had some fantastic sausages inNew Ulm, Minnesota
            It was locally made, and had a great pinkish creamy sauce that went great with them. I wish I could remember the name of the lunchenette that served them. Perhaps this place made them: http://www.newulmtel.net/~lendon/

            New Ulm has some great buuter too.

              Maybe it's time for another round of Great Sausage cities, and regions. I have found more in the NW than I thought existed. Down here in Southern Oregon, Taylor's of Cave Junction puts out tasty stuff; Zenners', from Portland, nice potato sausages, and many more......
              I'm making it a goal to try our NW producers.

                I claim my area, northeastern PA, as the sausage center of the United States.

                But the thing is, you can't BUY good sausage here... because no one wants it. Everyone makes their own.

                Italian. Polish. Kolbassi. Breakfast. Venison sausage. Squirrel sausage. Summer sausage, garlic links, whatever you want, someone you know firsthand is making it, or maybe you are. Stores sell sausage making equipment here like other areas sell coffee makers.

                Go to any church bazaar in the summer; there's one almost any evening. You'll find some old guy with a big tray of ground sausage, or sausage links, and another tray of mixed onions and peppers. It's all homemade. And people sit around eating it and commenting on whether it's better than their own, or better than Aunt Denise's.

                  OHMAGAWD, If you love sausage, you need to make a trip to the Stoysich House of Sausage in Omaha, Nebraska. Not only is nearly every ethnic group represented there (Russian, Czech, Danish, German, Italian,
                  ETC. - - - ), the best corn-fed beef and pork are raised locally also!. They have 5 or 6 types of blood sausage and head cheese alone to give you an example!
                  Their apple sausage (smoked) is to DIE for!
                  Check out www.stoysich.com

                        I'm from St Marys, PA. We're famous for being the home of Straubs Beer and Christmas Sausage. Christmas Sausage is made by individuals and several locally owned grocery stores.It's usually made from October to Febuary and is unique to the town. 95% of the town folk are deer hunters. The schools close on the first day of deer season! The individuals make it with Venison, beef and a little pork and it's heavily seasoned and primarily smoked using Applewood. The markets exclude the Venison because it's considered wild game.
                        Straub Beer is a family business and the brew is made using no perservatives. They've been in business for 175 years, making them one of the oldest continous famly operated breweries in America. They are famous for their Eternal Tap. Visit their web site http://www.straubbeer.com/history.htm
                        Nothing better than Some Christmas Sausage washed down with some Straubs Beer!

                          Are there ethnic subcategories in your town, or is it the traditional hot dog thing going on?

                            Lots of talk about German, Italian, Mexican sausage. Polish sausage (Kielbasi) rules. In Northern NJ... Wallington, Clifton and Passaic are the hubs for the best homemade Kielbasi around. I live in Florida now and have it FEDEX'd to me twice a month. Stefan and Son's in Clifton makes a glorious variety of Kielbasi and its outta this world.

                                I just read through the last 7 years of these posts and am surprised that noone has mentioned either New Bedford or Fall River Massachusetts. There, due to the wonders of Portugese heritage, two of the best sausages are made - linguica and chourico (pronounced lin-guee-sa and chor-ees) Not a breakfast sausage, per se, although it is mighty tasty next to a platter of eggs and potato. Garlicky, available in multiple "shapes" (hot dog size, bologna size, loose, patties, etc.)

                                Linguica pizza and Linguica sandwiches are found in many SE Mass places. Most markets there stock at least Linguica. Funnily enough, you can also find it in supermarkets in Florida, and some pockets on the West Coast. Alas, it is unknown here in the greater Philly area, but there are several mail-order sources.

                                And if you're lucky enough to find the spicier Chourico, don't be thinking you are getting Mexican/Spanish Chorizo - the taste is decidely different

                                  I'll agree...with its multicultural population and populous ethnic mix,Northern Jersey has an eclectic and large mix of sausages in many,many mom and pop locations!!!!!You don't have to travel very far in any direction to find quality!!

                                    The Hard Coal Region of Eastern PA is home to some wonderful sausage makers, especially Polish sausages.

                                        Best sausage in central Texas is Smitty's in Lockhart. In contrast to many others, it is loose packed. I have been comparing to many others for last several years - - and when I circle back to Smitty's - - it prevails. Great atmosphere is an added bonus.

                                          Sausages and sausage places are pretty abundant here in Northeast Wisconsin. Our loacl meat market Haens Meats has won quite a few awards for their brats and other things. I never buy Johnsonville since there are many good local places that make a far better brat than the mass producers.
