1] Kreuz Market in Lockhart
2] Opie's [Spicewood] Freedmen's [Austin] tied
4] Louie Mueller [Taylor] Stiles Switch [Austin] tied
 
Thoughts? Kreuz quality plunged so hard in recent years I quit going. I have a hard time believing they're better than neighbor; Blacks.

So with all your experience with texas hot links, can you kindly point me to what you think would be a good formulation to start with that represents a good flavored hot link.  Been too many years since I had the original to do it from memory!

We keep it really simple: grind either shoulder clod or brisket, go about 50/50 with your fat, we use beef tallow, lots of good salt, black pepper and a ton of cayenne. When you think you have your seasoning correct-double it. seriously.

In the Summer I have a 80/20 Beef/Pork Sausage ground for me, salt pepper, a ton of fresh garlic and Jalapenos ground and mixed in, it's way good!

We've been experimenting with the grinder/extruder for about a year and half. We've made every sausage under the sun. Our favorites have been boudin and pure beef Texas hot guts. Next week we're using Akaushi Wagyu beef for a restaurant pop up.

Is it just me or has anyone else noted that the sausage sold at the South Side Market do not taste the same as the ones sold in HEB under the same name? I tried making my own sausage there for a while with a stuffer I bought at Cabella's, each attempt was it's own disiaster so now it just sits in the garage.

It's one of them curved manullly levered ones with two different size funnels. Let me get it cleaned up and I'll bring it in to work and we can meet somewhere and I'll gladly sell it. You should have seen the comedy of me a 200 pound individual hanging off the floor trying to force the meat into the casings.
