The New Luscher's Has a Sausage Inspired by Meat Fight, Earth's Favorite Meat-Off

Mark your meat calendar: March 2 at 11 a.m., Luscher's on 2653 Commerce St. will have its grand opening.

I know you're all very excited for this restaurant to open, and there are a lot of rumors flying around about what it looks like inside, where exactly the sausage champagne room will be, and how many dollars Brian C. Luscher will be charging for each "Haha, sausage means dick!" joke. I was allowed to visit the test kitchen this week, and I'm happy to report that all of your sausage dreams are about to come true. (And it's $1 per sausage/dick joke.)

I also learned that Luscher's will be offering a Meat Fight? Smoked Sausage on their menu, inspired by the fundraising barbecue competition I host every year.

The sausage was inspired by the recipe Luscher used at this year's Meat Fight (beef and pork sausage stuffed with roasted pepper and cheddar) and is topped with horseradish pickle, grilled onions, "sweet pants" barbecue sauce, and papaya slaw on an Italian roll. Of course, I tried one, and I'm pleased to say that it blew my mouth-mind. I'm probably biased, but I'm also probably right. You'll have to wait until March 2 to decide for yourself.
