BBQ supplies - Esposito Sausage
Sausage, one of the essential barbeque foods. In many parts of Texas, sausage rules supreme. Forget about brisket. To hell with pulled pork or ribs. Bring on the sausage! Sausage is barbecue.
Here in New York, we are blessed with many incredible sausage makers. One of the best and oldest is Espostio Sausage. If you can get your hands on some of their sausage, I highly recommend it. You've probably had their sausage and never knew it. Much of their product is relabeled by the best stores and restaurants in the city and sold as their own.
It was in 1933 that Giovanni Esposito and Son's was founded as a fresh meat and poultry butcher shop in the same Hell's Kitchen-New York City location where it stands today.
Pursuing the "American Dream" Giovanni Esposito moved from his hometown of Naples, Italy to New York City. Originally launching his business on Mulberry Street Giovanni was forced to close it and return to Italy in 1924 to aid in his country's war effort. By 1933 Mussolini's continued rise to power forced his return (with his family) back to New York City.
And the rest, as they say is history.
Esposito Sausage is one of New York's great culinary achievements and a proud sponsor of NYC's first Barbecue contest - Grillin' on the Bay. We thank them for their generosity.
