Sausage Maker of the Month (Aug./Sept) – Local – New Buffalo, Michigan

In May 2013 we paid our first visit to Local and met Pat and Elle Mullin.

We did a "Pound of Questions"with them then and were taken by their commitment to the art of sausage making.

"A New Pound of Questions"

We passed the word to friends and family and pretty soon, our local circle had a Local story about incredible sausage – Ramp Andouille, Merguez, and Bacon Brat – to name drop a few. Then, in addition, they also had a variety of charcuterie – their talents go on and on.

Life flies past so fast you forget to stop along Route 12 in Michigan and see artistry at work. In two years, The Chicago Tribune discovered them, they added a room to the little house/store, and they had other glowing write-ups. And, they continue to be gracious hosts and grind out delicious high quality sausage.

On this trip I invoked the $100 rule of purchase having learned that dropping more is like a trip to Costco. On this Saturday morning I picked up:
• Bacon Burger Dogs
• Spicy Fennel
• Corn & Chili Brats

I couldn’t pass up the rib-eye steaks either or Elle’s brother red wine ( – a nice red blend of zin, grenache and carignan. (How does one family get a sausage star and wine star in the same family?)
The Corn & Chili Brat is a short season specialty; grab them before they are gone the way of Cub playoff hopes.

While the warm weather in the Midwest is still here, get to Local and drop a $100 – it will be very easy to do and your taste buds will Thank You. Tell them Sausagefest sent you.
