Our Bright Leaf Smoked Sausage is a ground pork sausage in a natural casing, traditionally seasoned, fully cooked and unlike many other smoked sausages, we use authentic hickory wood chips to give our smoked sausage that real wood flavor. It makes a delicious southern favorite for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It has also become a favorite cookout companion to our hot dogs, hot off the grill.

Our smoked sausage is available in two varieties – an old fashioned, coarsely ground smoked sausage in a natural casing, and a sausage dog, which has a finer grind and is skinless. The Old Fashioned Smoked Sausage is available in a 5 count size, which refers to the number of sausages per pound, in both retail and bulk packaging. The Skinless Bright Leaf Sausage Dog is available only in bulk packaging, in 5 count and 8 count sizes.
