    I do too, which is why I make my own.   I know a couple of places that make very good sausage, but they are a bit of a drive and expensive.  ... I make sausage just as good.   ... For a country breakfast sausage you only need black pepper salt and sage.  Add some  cayenne and/or red pepper flakes for mild more for hot.     I add salt at 1 1/2% of the total weight of the batch: No more!    Salt at more than 3% will make the sausage taste old & strong after a few days.     ... I use a pork mix of about 60% lean & 40% fat.
     
    After stuffing, I smoke the sausage links on my bbq grill with pecan wood for about 2 hours.  Then package and freeze for use later.
     
    Which reminds me, i need to make more later this week.

    I make a lot of sausage too but it's fun to walk into a shop and buy some out of the cooler from time to time. If you're in Bardstown, Jake's is certainly worth a visit.

    I have had their breakfast sausage many a early hunting season morning. I used to hunt in Bardstown and Culver City , just outside of Bardstown. 1000+ acre plots with ponds and rustic cabins powered by car batteries. Wood stove or an open fire and a skillet.

    It was bought just like that picture. One of the men we went with knew a worker there and bought several bags of the hot sausage cheap because they mixed in WAY TOO MUCH hot pepper. WAY TOO MUCH to be out in the middle of Gods Country for a long weekend living in the woods....

    There was an unintentional typo in the post that needs to be corrected.
     
    "I ask after Jake and the layabout informs me that the business used to be owned by Jake and Rose Ann Jones both of whom are diseased."
     
    Uhhh . . . Deceased?

    He wasn't too far off.  If they're deceased, it's a good possibility at some point they must have been diseased.

    Yes, there's contact info at the end of the piece. Bardstown's not too far from Kville. Nice drive too.
