Gourmet sausages from an Aussie butcher can be superb. 50 years ago, Billy at Ashmore Plaza was one of the 1st to make them on the GC and whilst he's long gone, his legacy remains. By a strange coincidence we found a 'Billy the Butcher' at Ashgrove on Waterworks Rd and his meat and smallgoods are probably the best you'll get in Qld. His Xmas hams are to die for though I missed out this year due to C19.Love some of the butchers fat beef sausages here in Oz.
Can't stand Thai sausages. Our friend from CM here on the Goldie makes them and my girl tried them once and was crook as a dog later from the chilli.... gave her a good clean out though 55
Your local CM friend obviously doesn't know how to make true Isaan or Lanna style sausages or is perhaps lacking certain ingredients. I've never tried either style with excessive chili, they are not supposed to be too spicy. Some have too high a fat content though.
