I love sausage of almost any sort. I haven't taken time to make my own or smoke my own like many of you have done. Until I take time to make my own I'm relegated to finding sausages that taste good to me.
A few years ago I became aware of dried sausages. I probably had them in the past but didn't realize what I was eating and hadn't fully developed my sausage palate at that point.
So I've been on a mission to try as many dried sausages as possible. I usually buy them at local butcher shops as we travel the country.
My wife gave me a pleasant surprise in my stocking at Christmas. Instead of the usual jerky she gave me in the past, she stumbled across Duke's Original Shorty Smoked Sausages. Yes, they are smoked but also smoked to the point of being dried. No fillers, no additives, just good smoked sausages in a mini size. They're great!
