During the Revolutionary war and Ohio Erie canal era's smoked sausage was a common method of preserving meat! We use Smoked Skinless, Smoked Cheesy, Smoked Hot & Spicy, or Cheese & Jalapeño sausage.
If you're into new culinary experiences you'd love our exotic caribou-reindeer sausage special! Reindeer hot dogs are frequently leaner and milder in flavor, tasting similar to venison sausage, but less gamy.
Our gourmet exotic bison bratwurst sausage will be a treat to your taste buds since it's richer in flavor. Bison is healthier than beef because it's lower in saturated fat and a great source of nutrients, it has the basics: zinc, niacin, iron, vitamin B6 and selenium. Come try a Bison Brat soon!
