After an OK start with Pederson’s products, they came roaring back with their excellent Andouille product. So how about the Uncured Smoked Bacon and Pork Sausage?
I put these puppies on the grill and they came out beautifully charred with juice oozing out of slightly split casings – watching them cook reminded me of some of the high quality natural casing hot dogs that I really like on the grill. The folks at Pederson’s have a real winner on their hands here.
Typically I will pass on buying products that are uncured and/or the label shouts at me about how the pork was raised and no gluten and no nitrates, etc – so many of this type of product in the past has been, well, gimmicky in the way that soy sausage is gimmicky. It never tasted right and in my mind, was for people who didn’t really like sausage.
Not this one. Forget about all the good things on the label (and they are good things). This sausage hands down is flavorful, juicy, and meaty. The bacon and pork flavors really shine and the sausage is mildly spiced in a way that doesn’t get in the way of the porky goodness.
I would give this a strong 8 on a scale of 10 and can highly recommend you give this a try. This is the second Pederson’s product we reviewed in the past 3 days and both received a score of 8. In my book, that’s a great score and is only enhanced by the fact that they start with great ingredients and then let those products speak for themselves.
