The good people at Bobak’s recently sent over a few of their products including cooked bratwurst, a pack of maxwell polish, and a smoked polish ring. Bobak’s is a nearly 50 year old purveyor on the South side of Chicago and they produce a nice variety of products for sale both online and in their store.
I recently received a nice package of products from Dearborn Brand up in Michigan. In business since 1946, Dearborn produces a wide variety of products including hams, condiments, and of course sausage.
That’s a big ol’ long name for a sausage!
We have reviewed some of Hillshire’s past attempts at making a sausage that would compete with some of the better regional brands. Unfortunately as you can see here and here, their Gourmet collection fell short of being a good product so how did their new series called American Craft fare in our taste test? Quite well actually.
The good folks at Teet’s Food Store sent me a fine selection of their products including some smoked sausages and boudin. Pictured is their Pork Jalapeno Cheese Sausage.
