How often does another food poll come out...at least once a minute, it seems...Now, I disagree with many of these in this article..(Johnsonville the best Italian???) Beef Kielbasa????????...still it's fun to ponder...what would your favorites be...remember store brands........share your thoughts...I usually get my Italian from our Italian deli.....or Costco's also...I like it lean and lots of fennel....

Well, for one thing, I wasn't aware that Johnsonville even made an Italian Sausage. Heck, even thier Bratwurst (which is thier claim to fame) isn't that good.

That being said, living in a state with at least 11 million Mom & Pop sausage stores of all ethnic varieties (Italian, Polish, German, Portugese, Hungarian and so on) I can't recall ever buying a "brand name" sausage, nor is there any reason to do so in New Jersey.

This evening we enjoyed a package of Onion Brats from Usingers (Wisconsin) that had been hiding in the back of the Freezer since our trip up that was last Fall.  They were Outstanding, and will be on our list for 're-purchase' on our next trip north. They showed no negative tastes considering they were in the freezer for almost 6 months .

Don't forget our Great Brat Taste-off from last September.  Schwai's, a locally distributed WI brat won, but the ALDI Roseland brats were a very close second.

Who you gonna believe, Rachel Ray or Buddy Roadhouse?

Buddy of coarse! Sorry Rachael! :~) 

She reads this you know. But... I don't think she did the taste test.

They should have had a list of what they tasted instead of just the winners. I could not find one.

<<for italian sausage bob botto's sausage is the best.  local south jersey brand. >>

I picked up one of their Sausage Strombolis from thier market while passing thru Swedesboro last fall. It was fantastic!

<<ALDI has their U.S. bratwurst produced by Klement's Sausage Company in the Milwaukee area. >>

Is that for all Aldi stores in the US, or just the Milwaukee area? I bought a pack of the Aldi Bratwurst a while back, it was really good and about 1/2 the price of butcher shop bratwurst. A lot of times it's almost impossible to find out who makes their products.

The note I received from Klement's said "Klement Sausage Company produces ALDI's Roseland Bratwurst!!"

Sounds all inclusive to me.

I can attest that a trip to the Klement Outlet store shows some famous names on occasion.

Joe

This list came from the October, 2008 of the Rachael Ray magazine. That is 15 months ago:
http://www.rachaelraymag.com/video-how-to/how-to-cook/supermarket-101-grocery-store-tips/big-bite-sausage
 
We would need a print edition of the magazine to find out more details. No one seems to have blogged about the article on the web. Must have been another bathroom-reading material article.
 
They claim they tested more than 100 types of supermarket/grocery store sausage. What we really need to know is how much money they had to spend on this taste test. If they had no stringers shipping in food on dry ice to New York City from around the country (like Consumers Reports used to do), or bought from online direct shippers like Usinger's, it means they bought stuff within a 150 mile radius of Manhattan.
 
I think you can find 100 different types of supermarket sausage for sale within the NYC Metro area alone. Certainly all 6 of the products in the referenced article are available in the NYC Metro area. Dietz and Watson is not available nationally.

Thanks Jim. I just read the thread on the Bratwurst taste off (I dodn't pay much attention to it the first time, I think because it would have made me jealous..) but it's amazing that Aldi came in 2nd. Saves me a trip to Wisconsin, there's an Aldi 12 minutes from here in South Plainfield.

I did my own brat taste-off this past fall; I bought packages of every brat I could find, both fresh and precooked; I had maybe 8 or 9 different brands. I simmered them in beer and onions, then took them to work and grilled them for the guys. I have to say that while they were all different, I liked every single brand and style.

Mosca, I agree. From the 1st to the last, there was much to enjoy. The leanest sausages are tricky but what made our taste off championship difficult was the care shown in their cooking. I'm serious, Jim watched them closely and none were overcooked (which would sink the best) nor undercooked, which besides the obvious safety risk, would not allow for the full flavors to come to the surface.

I always liked the Jody Moroni Chicken Apple Sausages.  They were the best until I went to Tom's Farm in Corona, CA and found Chicken Apple Sausages made by Usingers.

Now those are worth the trip to buy them.

Here in Northeast Wisconsin there is no reason to buy cheap big brand sausage when there are so many good local places within 30 miles of here it isnt funny. Haens Meat Market right in town here, Festival Foods,Olsens Piggly Wiggly in Green Bay, Konop Meats in Denmark, Miesfelds in Sheboygen,and many more that I just havent stopped at yet. So if anyone is ever in this area there is a lot of choice here for good sausage.

In Dallas, the Central Market stores stock many brands and types of smoked sausage made in Central Texas by companies of Czech and German origin. I'd say they'd give the folks up in Wisconsin a good run for their money.

True NYPN but it's a long walk even in Texas.

There is a sausage on a stick that is good. I just can't remember the brand. Those are big at the flea markets around here. Maybe I can find it with a google?
Joe

Ok, It's Farm Pac. Slow smoked over hickory embers. They are good and about 5 bucks for 4 if you can find them at a store. Brookshires in N. Texas has them.

I just enjoyed some of Aldi's fully cooked natural casing Smoked Bratwurst. It only cost $2.29 for a pack of 5. These trace back to another Chicago specialty saugage maker, Bobak Sausage Company. The carton also contains Cooked Bratwurst. I understand Aldi sold imported Nuremberger bratwurst, but I never found a package.

In Dallas, Kuby's (German) Sausage House makes all their "old world" sausages
on the premises. Just watch out for their unfriendly A-T-T-I-U-D-U-D-E.
http://www.kubys.com

For homemade, on the premises Italian sausage both hot and sweet, Jimmy's Italian Market is so good, even the restaurants in Dallas buy them. And, no attitude. They're the greatest!

Oh Jeez, I think that Johnsonville sausages are not good at all.  When I want a real brat I will go to one of the local German delis.  When I want an Italian sausage I will go to an Italian deli.  I will not, under any circumstance, eat a Johnsonville sausage of any type.  They just don't taste right.   Any body else who want to eat a Johnsonville is definitely entitled to do it, but, not for me.  Sorry if I appear to be snobbish about the sausage that I eat; but, I am paying for them, after all.

I agree about Jimmy's. It's a 90 mile round trip but I drive it. I but 5 lbs at a time, not big on their meatballs tho.      
haven't tried Kubys, do you know if they make hot dogs. Haven't had a good german dog since I'ved lived here.

I've been buying the Archer Farms brand of Bratwurst from Super Target for a couple of years now, I have to say they are pretty darn good. Not at all what you would think coming from a store like Target. The Super Target's have groceries and in the meat case they sell brats and Italian sausages. I think the brats are actually made in Wisconsin. They are flavorful, no MSG, and if you simmer them in beer and onions, then grill them, they are very tasty. I turned one of my neighbors onto them, she said she hated the Johnsonville brats but gave these a try and loved them.

I will also say that Aldi's are very good. They have two brands.. one is Parkview or something, in a cold case (not freezer). The others are Roseland and in the frozen case. Both were excellent.

Out of all the stuff in the supermarket, I like these the best:

I love the red package, Smoked hot sausage made with beef.

They have hotter ones, but those aren't all beef.. they also have chicken and pork in them, so I only buy these ones.

That being said, living in a state with at least 11 million Mom & Pop sausage stores of all ethnic varieties (Italian, Polish, German, Portugese, Hungarian and so on) I can't recall ever buying a "brand name" sausage, nor is there any reason to do so in New Jersey.
 
First let me say that on visits to places with more or different ethnic groups than I see at home that I enjoy eating different kinds of food, including sausage.
 
That said, in NJ do you have local or mom and pop equivalents to Taylor or Trenton Pork Rolls?  If so, are they called "pork rolls" or do you ID them by shape and color?

CD348, I am no fan of not a big fan of Johnsonville regular brats although... their pre cooked brats are not bad if you think of it as a whole new kinda sausage.

Trader Joe's currently has imported Nuremburg Bratwurst that are excellent. Predominant spices are sage and corinder.
 
TJ's owner Aldi, in Aldi stores, is currently selling domestic Deutsche Küche brand smoked bratwurst for $2.29 a pound. These are of low quality, loaded with water, fat and salt. They really got me mad. I cut into a piece with a knife and fork, and the water/fat squited onto my shirt in several places. The stain does not want to come out.

I will throw my two cents in and say the sausages from Southside Market in Luling Tx get my vote.

I will use Johnsonville Italian sausage once in awhile-they arent bad,imo. Otherwise we go to a Milwaukee landmark, Gloriosos italian market. Brats-Usingers or Karls Country Market which is within walking distance for me.

Lately I've been getting these wonderful hotdogs here in Taylor Texas, they have really good fresh beef sausage and the best ring bologna I've ever eaten.  Here is their website http://www.taylormeat.com/index.html

Two years ago, Aldi had natural sausages. I traced them back to:

Really good stuff!

 
Costco carries AmyLu brand. The Chicken Apple Gouda sausage is wonderful; I make sure I've got a pound or two in the freezer all the time.

I'm not a big fan of chicken sausage, it has an odd texture.

Karl's Market in Menomonee Falls, WI.  Best bratwurst anywhere.  Not far from Milwaukee.  They serve sandwiches for lunch every day of the week, all you do is ask at the deli.  It would be worth the group visiting on the next Milwaukee outing.

Sorry Joe, I'm confused. Did you comment on the wrong thread?

Tdj, what I ment was that the Aldi or AmyLu chicken sausages mentioned here might not have the texture issue you don't like? Not sure cause  have not had them but if Jm and David think they are good I would give them a try.
