Butcher’s mince mixture sizzling up for sausage awards

KIN Kora Meats hopes to snag another win at this year's AMIC's 2015 Sausage King and Butchers Best Burger competition.

Last year the butchers returned to Gladstone with the Best Beef Sausage Award for Capricornia.

This time manager Scott Avis hopes they will do one better and take out the state gong for the top beef or pork sausage.

Mr Avis said he had been experimenting with mixtures for the past two months.

"I've been selling them at the shop and giving them away just so I can get some feedback," he said. "A lot of people like the chicken, mango and pine nut."

This year the business will enter six sausage types in the awards - a beef and Worcestershire, chicken mango and pine nut, cherry chicken, pork and chilli, lamb ginger and garlic, and mustard lamb.

Since 2007 the butchers have won the best beef sausage four times in Capricornia and once in the state awards.

Tannum Meats, with the same owner, will try its hand at this year's awards too. They will enter a plain beef, plain pork, gourmet chicken, peri-peri chicken, beef herb and garlic plus several other sausage flavours.
