Nothing says summer like a grill filled with sausages.

FoodCrush Podcast: Making the best of your wurst with Milwaukee Sausage Co.

Nothing says summer (or tailgating) better than a grill piled high with fresh sausages. And who knows sausages better than the makers themselves?

In this episode, we chat with Mark Maciejewski and Jeff Marquardt of Milwaukee Sausage Co., local makers of hand-crafted sausage, about what makes these encased meats such a quintessential part of the Midwestern diet.

During our chat, we discuss the origins of Maciejewski's Polish sausage recipe, glean insights into what it takes to build a truly delicious sausage and discuss tips and tricks for prepping, grilling and holding sausages. Along the way, we take a fascinating detour into the world of German sausage vernacular and somehow meander into an impromptu discussion about Star Wars. And yes, we attempt once again to solve the age-old question: Is a hot dog (or sausage) a sandwich?
