A small regional purveyor of smoked meats, Conecuh Sausage Co in Evergreen Alabama, became our next sausage review when I picked up a package of their Cajun Smoked Sausage.
I’m a fan of regional sausage makers and usually find them to offer a solid product and Conecuh certainly rose to the challenge with their Cajun variety.
When I think cajun (or cajun spiced) sausage I think flavor and heat. Unlike a regular hot sausage, the cajun sausage should offer less heat but expand on the flavor profile to include garlic, a little onion, maybe some oregano, and of course a little cayenne.
The Conecuh Sausage version provided nice flavor in a medium grind sausage that would work great on the grill, in your favorite recipe, or straight up wrapped in a tortilla with some peppers and onions. If I had one issue with the sausage it would be that for my pallete it was slightly over smoked but that’s not a deal breaker and this is a sausage I would purchase again. You can check availability in your area on their website or just order directly through their site.
