It's good but HEB premium is better. Is HSF nationwide?

It must be if you're getting it too. And my bad. How would you even know what HEB premium is like?

Isn't the Polish Kielbasa usually pork with garlic? Anyway we eat the hell out of it down here. Call it Polish or "Country". And HSF rocks too...

I could show you what to do. Its not terribly hard. You have  to cure the ground pork and beef. Then pack it into casings with just the right amount of fat and salt pepper and garlic, then cold smoke it.

I feel bad that they are raising the price of this crap kielbasa. All meat is going up because feed prices are going up.

Im very lucky the hood where I work is right next to Phillys Polish neighborhood. The best kielbasa in the world. I think their wedding kielbasa is about the same price as hillshire farms. 

If you want, let me know Ill pack up some Krakus market wedding Keilbasa and ship it out to you if you want. Ill stop by there this week and see how much it is.

In our house Kielbasa ans sauerkraut pay a big part of Christmas. We celebrate Christmas Slovakian style.

My wife absolutely loves the kielbasa. Its one of the reasons I married her.
Beer, its whats for dinner.

Cap can never stay on topic. I used to have a great place to get this kind of stuff, but I noticed the past few times that there's a significant texture change and much more fat. I believe if you get that sawdust texture, that's an overapplication of organ meat, and well, fat in the wrong proportions in a sausage just feels nasty.
The moral majority, is neither.

Back when football season first started I was trying to replicate Johnsonville Brats. This site: http://thepauperedchef.com/2009/06/the-bratwurst-mystery.html got me pretty damn close. In the myriad of links he provides, you can find this one:

http://thespicysausage.com/sausagemakingrecipes.htm

which is pretty much my go-to for sausage recipes these days. They're pretty damn good. Here's the closest to kielbasa he has:
