    What's the Best Braunschweiger?

    Simple question
    . I've always been partial to Nueske's. What else is out there?

    I’ve always gone with Usinger’s. And come to think of it, it’s been a long time since I’ve had some. Added to my grocery list.

      For me it was the kind my Mom bought and that I enjoyed as a kid back in the '60's. Unfortunately she's long gone and I can't remember what she used to buy.

        I can’t remember what my Ma used to buy either, come to think of it, I don’t know if I even knew what she used to buy, I just ate it, and ate it. See, I was given it fer lunch one day & enjoyed it & said so. That was a big mistake, cuz it seems I got it fr lunch fer years afterwords. Now that I don’t have to eat it everyday I’ve once again takin a likin to it. Can’t remember what brand I’ve eaten lately either. 🕶

        Remember it from my New Jersey childhood. It was a deli staple but haven't had it in years. I'd love some right about now in this quarantine time.

        Great post Murdy Coming from a German background I had the pleasure of having some really good authentic braunschweiger.
        I haven’t found anything good in years.
        Will follow this post to see what’s out there these days.

        Limited choice around here. I usually settle for John Morell brand. Gotta get into a hill country German market.

          Wow! Great post. I haven't had any for 45 years I'd guess. My Mom used to buy it like some have mentioned already. We probably had Hormel brand?

            My local grocery sells: Scott Peterson, Usingers, and sometimes Kretchmars,which is by far the best..and priced accordingly.

              I don’t know what brand my Oma gets from the commissary when she gets it. Like many of you, when I go see her, she always has different German style meats in the fridge and offers me a sandwich.

              One brand that has decent German style deli meats I have found is Dietz and Watson. Albertsons use to carry this brand, I’d mainly by the German style sausages but occasionally deli meat.

              We use to have a German deli in the city called Alpine Sausage House, I’d go by there occasionally for stuff, and man was it good!

                Whoa. I don’t think I know anyone other than us, my family, refer to their grandma as Oma.

                Hubby (and the dogs) doesn't mind the Morrell or other national brands, but I refuse to eat that nasty stuff. Fatty with no flavor.

                My favorites are Fricke's (Washington, Missouri), and Bakalar's (La Crosse, Wisconsin) braunschweiger. We have some Nueske's in the fridge at the moment to try.

                  I was checking on the internet and found this for Aldi. I know they protect their sources very tightly so I don’t know how true this is. It is from a website I have not heard of before so reliability is questionable.

                  “Deutsche Kuche” (translator: “German cuisine”) is the brand name they cooked up for some of their lunch meats and sausages. Their braunschweiger (liverwurst) is made for them by Washington, Missouri based Frick Meats.”

                We used to call it liver sausage. Only one I’ve had as an adult is Boars Head. That’s all I got

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
