We are pleased to introduce our newest specialty sausage in the U.S., based on our recipe that won "Gold Medal -- Overall Champion" at the 2010 Southwest England BPEX Awards. Our beef banger combines a unique blend of traditional spices, bread crumbs, and beef in a natural casing. We've also added a hint of dried horseradish, which compliments the beef and adds just a bit of heat. Mild and pleasing, these specialty sausages are msg and nitrite free. Fully cooked, just brown and serve .. now available in our online shop!
We would like to thank so many of you for your patronage this year, and we'd especially like to wish you a Happy Christmas and New Year! God bless you,
A highlight from last year's National Sausage Week... R.J. Balson's Spicy Pork and Toffee Apple sausage, created for fireworks night, reached the finals of the competition and was judged to be one of Britain's "Most Legendary Bangers" by the panel of experts and guest judge Noddy Holder. I list of all 2012 awards coming soon!
The Summer of 2012 was quite eventful! ...London survived the crowds of the Olympics while Bridport survived major flash flooding! Our shop was underwater with much of Dorset, and we still managed to keep the butchery going! Summer of 2012 is another major event to add to our 477 year history! Top photos are of front and sides of the shop, Bottom photos are of Bridport streets.
Be sure to catch us on the radio Wed., July 17... We're talking butchery with " Big JD" -- at 4pm -- don't miss "uTalkin2ME with Big JD" talk show on 99.1FM out of Windsor-Detroit or online podcast at
