Sausage Kings of Austin
The third edition of the Sausage Kings of Austin presented by 365 Things Austin took place this past Sunday. La Barbecue won the previous one in 2017. The event this year was held at The Brewer's Table. Seven restaurants duked it out to see who had the best sausage in Austin. It was a beautiful day to enjoy some tasty meats and good brews. Let's see what everyone brought:
Banger's - Barbecue jalapeño chili cheese dog topped with BBQ hash, sweet chopped slaw, and fried pigskin
The Brewer's Table - Bouilla - Brat smoked shrimp & pork sausage, bouillabaisse, rouille, and cornichons
La Barbecue - Poblano, jalapeño, and Cambodian pepper sausage
Micklethwait Craft Meats - Lamb sausage, cracker, and pickled veggies
|Ren Garcia & Lane Milne|
Salt & Time - Reuben sausage (pastrami, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, pickles, & caraway seeds), Smash Faced lager mustard, and sauerkraut cracker
Scholz Garten - Baltic hash venison sausage dressed with cactus kraut and prickly pear coulis
The Switch - The Happy Meal - bacon cheeseburger sausage with French fry bits and beer braised onions
|Chris McGhee & Marco Oglesby|
Micklethwait took home top honors with La Barbecue finishing second. Congratulations to both of them. Micklethwait's entry was a well composed dish, and La Barbecue's sausage had a nice spice and flavor to it. I really enjoyed The Switch's Happy Meal sausage. Very unique and fun. I did not know what to expect from The Brewer's Table, but I was pleasantly surprised. They always put out refine and balance dishes. Evan LeRoy was missing from the event, but he was in Miami slinging burgers. I would like to see him again at the next one. All in all, it was a delicious event.
Until next time, happy smoking...
