Memphis BBQ Sausage
The idea for these links came to Chris while attending college in Memphis, a city where barbecue reigns supreme. To recreate the sweet and spicy kick of traditional Memphis barbecue in sausage form, we use barbecue spices, fresh scallion and garlic, vinegar, and brown sugar. Our pigs enjoy a healthy lifestyle outside in the pasture and woods, resulting in meat with an exceptional flavor and sausage that can’t be beat. These links have a natural casing so we advise starting them over low heat before searing, to reduce the risk of bursting.
Our sausages are made with carefully selected trim from the entire hog. We only put lean meat and back fat into our sausages, making sure to remove all the undesirable bits (ahem, unlike some other links out there). We use a natural casing for all of our sausage links, to give them that crisp, hearty bite. Ingredients: Pork, salt, black pepper, white pepper, brown sugar, smoked paprika, red pepper flakes, ancho chili powder, fresh garlic, tomato paste, honey, apple cider vinegar, fresh green onions.
Start this sausage on low heat, then crisp them up at the end. The indirect cooking method will prevent the natural casing from bursting and drying out your sausage.
Not just a piece of meat
Great flavor starts in the field. At Porter Road, we partner with farmers who raise their animals on pasture, for a difference you can taste.Learn more about our process
