Last Saturday I was passing through the small town of Fredonia, WI and stopped in at Schwai's to see what might be in the meat case, and one of the things I found was some beef summer sausage as big around as a burger bun. Immediately I thought that it'd be fun to grill so I bought 4 pieces, each not quite as thick as the distance to the first knuckle of my little finger.

I put them over direct charcoal heat to get some nice grill marks and a little bit of char.

I topped mine with some horseradish mustard and it was quite good. The heat softened the fat in the sausage so it had a slightly looser texture than if it was cold, and at the same time the spices and seasonings really came out. I would absolutely do this again; the trick is to find sausage large enough to fit the buns so a good alternative would be to use a standard size version along with some small rolls or slider buns.

That looks a lot like lebanon baloney which I like fried on an egg sandwich.

Same here! But summer sausage is a really neat twist, Brad!
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

I probably wouldn't have made the 2-hour drive if it was my only stop but I was meeting some friends for a day in the Sheboygan area so that made it a bit more practical. And along with the summer sausage I also bought some of Schwai's very good brats.
