Thanks for the compliments all! I really do enjoy cooking and grilling.
The portabella sausages I've had before. Thay are chicken based and you can really taste the mushrooms in them. One of the Karl Ehmer Pork Stores by me carries a nice variety of sausages and wurst made by other local businesses, hence the Kochers ring bologna and the venison sausage. When I picked up the venison sausage the price sticker covered the fact that they were made with blueberries and Merlot. I kept that info to myself. My family will try any kind of game meat but I didn't know how pronounced the blueberry taste would be. They were delicious!
As for the lamb shoulder chops, my family loves having a bit of chew to their meat. They are also very tasty and yes, on sale.
