This past Memorial Day weekend the Sexy Six & Burger Mob paid tribute to America in true sexy fashion. This weekend we celebrated baseball, beer, and yes, cased meat. One of our true unsung heroes, the sausage can be found at every ballpark, backyard, and street corner.
According to Wikipedia (which can be edited by almost any of the 6 billion idiots in the world), "a sausage is a food made from ground meat, both beef and pork. Also commonly included is ground pork fat (fatback), salt, herbs, and spices. Typically the sausage is formed in a casing traditionally made from intestine [I call this flavor], but sometimes is synthetic" ("Sausage" 1).
Wikipedia continues to describe this tasty meat treat as regional fare-with each country adding their own cultural twist. But while the French are credited with the etymological origin, the saussiche continues to be a celebrated American favorite.
So next time you are out at the club and you need a quick fix of sobriety, look for your closest meat vendor. Because what you call sausage, I call ladies of the night.
Stay tuned for more about Sexy Burger Memorial Day weekend, our Take Me out to the Ballgame burger, and insight on sausage's sister meat: the hot dog.
