So, 3 years ago I started having a backyard barbecue that I lovingly called “Sausage Party”. I invited a small group of friends (men only…hence the term “sausage party”) and featured several different varieties of fresh sausage. I added a humorous twist to my invitations and now it’s taken on a life of it’s own. It was at Sausage Party that the idea for Sausage Obsession was born.
I don’t remember the first time I had a sausage but I’m certain it was before I could walk. I grew up in a largely Hispanic neighborhood to an Argentine father and a Mexican-American mother so my fondest memories of childhood involve big family gatherings with lots of food…usually some form of sausage. In fact, one of my earliest memories of barbecuing involves sampling the moist cake-like bites of blood sausage hot off my dad’s charcoal Weber grill.
I didn’t realize how much I loved sausage until I moved away from the mid-west and couldn’t easily find any of the sausages that I had grown to love like Mexican Chorizo, Blood Sausage, Brats, Polish Sauages and more. When I did find them, I savored every bite so much so that it became an “obsession” to find new and interesting varieties in my surrounding area.
My intent with www.sausageobsession.com is to create a site that offers anyone interested in sausage a deep immersion into the topic with a selection of sausage recipes, sausage news, sausage pictures and sausage videos all with a little bit of humor mixed in for good measure.
