Who makes great Italian Sausage?

Bob Copeland | Jul 17, 2007 09:13 AM

I'm looking for great Italian Sausage to grill at home. I like a pork based sausage, somewhat coarsely-ground (not smooth), assertively seasoned, with fennel, like you could find on the East Coast, such as outside Fenway Park or in NY/NJ.

Preferably, the sausage will stand-up to braising in a red sauce as well.

Who makes your favorite sausage?

I've tried Columbus, Molinari, New Youk Sausage (Safeway/Costco), Caggiano, Schaubs, Café Rouge and Johnsonville. Any other ideas?

Any hot dog stands or restaurant suggestions welcomed as well.
