I don’t want to see you messing around with a fork and knife when served one of Lewis Barbecue’s Texas hot guts sausages.
The stuff of tube meat legend, pitmaster John Lewis’ hot guts deserve a more animalistic approach. I’m talking hands on, rip that sucker apart with your teeth consumption.
The pay-off? A rubberband snap of casing splitting beneath your teeth as cured pork spills out. Yes, it looks naughty. No, I don’t care. This is the only way to eat these sausages.
But, come to find out, the secret to the hot guts’ satisfying snap has nothing to do with Lewis’ choice in casings.
