In nearly the geographic center of Wisconsin, a small town named Wautoma, Stoneridge Market is a full service grocery store that has a wholesale meat manufacturing and distributing division, and if that weren’t enough, they own a winter inner tubing park nearby. Their in-house meat counter features dozens of flavors of bratwurst, as well as other processed and smoked meats. They’ll also process your deer for you, here’s the pricing for that. (It’s very price competitive – get your venison sausage on!) The market carries over 300 varieties of Wisconsin cheese, and fresh curds (squeaky cheese) are available every Thursday!
I picked up their garlic ring bologna, which is a beef/pork combination in a natural casing, with mild herbs and spices for flavoring. It’s a nice fine grind, excellent casing, and mild flavor. It’s not nearly as strong as “Chicago style” garlic sausages.
Even though this is a smoked product, it doesn’t say “fully cooked” on the package, so I recommend heating it in your preferred manner. I usually simmer in water for a while, and then slice on a bias and pan fry. Most times I like a little char.
Serve as a breakfast side, or an entree with kraut or hot German potato salad. If Google maps is correct, the plant is one of the buildings at the end of the road pictured below.
