It truly is simple, but it seems complicated so you’ll be sure to impress your spouse or dinner guests. Our all-pork Andouille sausage combines spices and flavors passed down for generations that create the perfect French Cajun experience. Throw it in with these ingredients, and you have yourself a gourmet meal. It not only looks incredible, it tastes incredible!

Oktoberfest 2014

Oktoberfest-14-slideOktoberfest on River Street is one short week away! Come out to the river on October 4th to witness or participate in the greatest sausage eating contest around! 

Never heard of our infamous Sausage Eating Contest? Well things are about to change! Just take a look at last year’s post >> Oktoberfest of the River 2013 <<

We team up with our local distributor Ambos Seafood to provide an unlimited amount of smoked sausages to those brave enough to stand in front of a crowd and devour sausage until they can literally eat no more. Last year, our reigning champion from the prior two years was ‘out-eaten’ by Corey Fisher from Charlotte, NC who ate 16 1/2 Roger Wood sausages in under 5 minutes. You read that number correctly… 16.5 Roger Wood Sausages. Who will win the bragging rights this year? 

There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Winners. The FIRST Place Winner is awarded a CASH PRIZE. Second and Third Place Winners receive a goodie bag of prizes.

July is National Hot Dog Month

 July is National Hot Dog Month…

and who better to turn to for hot dog facts than the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council!

Here are a few of their fun facts:  

“Los Angeles residents consume more hot dogs than any other city (over 40 million), beating out New York and Atlanta.

Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport consumes SIX times more hot dogs, 725,000 more than Los Angeles International Airport and LaGuardia Airport combined.

On Independence Day, Americans will enjoy 150 million hot dogs, enough to stretch from D.C. to L.A. more than five times.

During peak hot dog season, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, Americans typically consume 7 billion hot dogs. That’s 818 hot dogs consumed every second during that period.

Los Angeles Dodger fans are expected to consume a record 3,077,537 in 2014. Across the major leagues, fans are expected to eat 21.4 million hot dogs in 2014.”

That’s a LOT of hot dogs!

Happy Father’s Day

1064479_68697022

Father’s Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society.” -Wikipedia 

What do you and your families do to celebrate the fathers in your family? Do you spend a few hours out by the grill letting your dad be the ultimate Grill Master?

We think every dad deserves to be honored on this holiday, and since it falls in June every year, you know just the best grilling season, buying dad a grill, grill accessories or food to throw on the grill always seem like the best gifts. Grills are the ultimate cooking appliance. They open up endless opportunities for your menu all year round. You can throw on steaks, hot dogs and hamburgers, fruit, pizza- you name it, and you can probably grill it.

Whatever gift you bought or made for dad, the focus for the day is him and how much he means to you. Give him a big Thank You and Happy Father’s Day because he deserves it.
