Everyone appreciates a gift assortment from Usinger’s !

Is it August Already?

Yep, the State Fair is underway at State Fair Park in West Allis. I love the Fair, an adventure at every turn and a huge selection of foods to try.

I invite you to stop by the Usinger Booth in the air conditioned Wisconsin Products Pavilion. We are serving up our ¼ pound Brats, Beef Franks, Italian Sausage or Smoked Brat with Cheddar & Jalapeno.

In addition to our sausage we’re featuring three great Reuben sandwiches. You will find the classic Corned Beef Reuben as well as our Turkey Reuben or try a Smoked Ham Reuben. Of course we use our house made Usinger Sauerkraut to build these beauties.

So find comfort and the best food at the best price inside the Wisconsin Products Pavilion.

See you at The Fair!

The Second Half of Summer!

As we enter the second half of this summer. It’s time to review your grilling successes. Hopefully you have attained “black belt status” for grilling brats and wieners using my two beer philosophy. Now it’s time to expand the menu. Have you tried Usinger Smoked Pork Chops on the grill? They are already smoked and fully cooked, just sear the outside a little (so you get the nice grill marks) and they are ready to go. Or try some of my other spicy international favorite links: Usinger Andouille, Smoked Chorizo or Portuguese style Linguica. All are smoked and cooked, so they require minimal grill time to heat them through, quick & easy. If you like some cheddar in your wurst, try our Smoked Brat with Cheddar & Jalapeno (it’s really good!).

Happy Tailgating

 

As summer fades into fall and cool crisp mornings turn into beautiful afternoons it can only mean one thing – football season and plenty of great weather for grilling Usinger Brats.

Nothing beats standing by the grill on a crisp afternoon, enjoying the aroma and sizzle of Usinger Brats. Remember my advice and cook the brats low and slow to avoid split casings so the flavorful juices stay in the brats.

For our loyal Usinger fans we’re kicking off our “Tailgate Party Contest”. Just send us a picture of your tailgate party with Usinger Sausage and you could win a Tailgate Party Pack featuring Usinger Brats, Usinger Festival Sauerkraut and Pretzilla soft pretzel buns. Visit our website at usinger.com and look for the Contest tab for more information. Also, look for our Fall Deli Discount offer coming in the mail soon.  If you don’t receive one, sign up for the newsletter on the Usinger website and we’ll get you one.  Happy Tailgating and Go Pack !

Grilling’s 2nd Season!

Warm sunshine and crisp air, autumn is truly on it’s way. No need to think about hanging up the grill tongs quite yet. There are two months of great grilling weather ahead.

 

For cool weather grilling try something a little spicy, like our Smoked Chorizo or Smoked Andouille links. For something completely different, try grilling our bone – in, Smoked Pork Chops. They are cured, smoked for hours in our brick smokehouses and are fully cooked.  When you put’em on the grill they’re nothing short of amazing!

 

Now is a great time to try something new, during our Fall 15 promotion.  Until the end of September, you can stock up on Usinger deli products and save 15%.  All you have to do is type in “Fall 15” in the promo code when you order online. Don’t forget the Summer Sausage and Braunschweiger, so you are ready for those big game gatherings.  The Fall 15 promotion is available only on sausage products and only in the online Deli Store, or at our retail store downtown at 1030 N. Old World 3rd Street.

Get Ready, Here it Comes

German Fest begins July 29 – 31 at Maier Festival Park on Milwaukee’s lakefront.  What a great time to experience German food, culture, music and yes a little beer. It’s like an Octoberfest warm up party.

We are proud to be a long time sponsor of Milwaukee’s German Fest and provider of many different types of sausage and meats served during the three day run.

You may want to try a German Fest favorite, the over-sized, October Fest Bratwurst or the spicy Smoked Bratwurst.  Then there is the Bavarian Wiener, Knackwurst or the Pork Links that are served with the potato pancakes. Or maybe you want the Smoked Pork Chops (Kassler Rippchen) that are smoked over glowing hard wood embers in our two story brick smokehouses. Don’t forget the Sauerkraut…. We make that too.

Hope to see you at the opening ceremonies.  Bring your appetite and we will see you there!
