I was talking today to someone from Texas and that's why I'm writing a hot-guts-review.
You see I have been having problems with my labtop Wi-fi which is a another issue to deal with and he was based in Texas and of course I told him that I love Texas-barbecue.
He mentioned hot-guts and how he loves them.and we discussed the different types of hot guts. Then we started talking about hot-guts which is a type of sausage that is born in the barbecue triangle of Texas between Elgin,Lockhard and Taylor texas in the Texas hill country. Also there is a lot of smokehouses making hot guts in New Braunfels
And if you are a fan of hot guts you know that Texas makes the best. You see that German immigrants to the United states settled in this region of Texas accounting for the delicious sausage that comes from here.
Proudly display your love of Texas Hot Guts on you
You love eatin the best sausage in the world called hot-guts so why not proudly wear the hot guts on you?
Types of hot-guts
Hot-guts comes in different sizes the most common being a quarter pound of a mixture of pork,beef and spices. Some common types are just smoked with hickory,others are filled with different types of cheese such as cheddar and mozarella.
We have not talked about the Texas-sausage that is truly Tex-mex where the sausage is filled with jalopenos to make that hot. That's how they got the name of hot-guts.
You see this Texas-sausage used to be a lot hotter 20 years ago but do to different tastes the heat was reduced. But there is a resurgence in making sausage again with more heat.
So we have discussed the regular versions of hickory smokeded hot-guts. There is also versions made sweet such as applewurst and of course the german favorite of bratwursts or for short- brats. Brats go great with beer.
These are no hot-dogs!
Do not mistake hot-guts with reguar hot dogs. I am sorry hot dog fans the day you eat a genuine hot-gut I doubt you will ever go back to a hot-dog
When in Texas
Make sure you visit some of the great smokehouses in Elgin,Lockhardt and Taylor and New Braunfels. This is the most fun a barbecue and sausage lover can have. Go on a sausage,rib and barbecue road trip.
My article is being still written and I will add part two later today or tommorrow discussing my favorite smokehouses for hot guts
If you are a relatively new sausage producer of hot-guts I am always willing to review your sausage so contact me on my about-contact page and send me a sample. Believe me if its good you will know because it will not last around here.
The hot-guts-review is based on my taste-buds and my niece and family are chosen as they are very picky. Unfortunately they raid the freeer for all my sausage now and I nevr have enough for me
Three favorite types of mine for hot-guts
