    A wagyu sausage... they could have used ANY kind of beef and it would have tasted exactly the same but it would be orders of magnitude cheaper...

      It's Wagyu because that is what they have as leftovers that need using. Whole animal means exactly that, they use every part of the animal for something.

    I'm sure it's delicious but looking at a leaky sausage is making me sick.

    Why would you use wagyu if you're just going to add pork fat to it anyway? Literally just an excuse to charge more money for it.

    they run wagyu through a grinder? and mix in spices and pork fat with it
    kinda makes me think it isnt the best wagyu

      It's highly unlikely they are using Japanese A5 to make sausage so your assumption is very likely correct. Not that it really matters though, no chef in his right mind would use the best wagyu to make sausage.

    why use wagyu for the ground beef
    its a waste of good beef because you can control the meat to fat ratio with ground beef anyways

      Well the muscle part they used seems to have less fat could be somewhere on the legs. Some cuts in the wagyu not really used for steaks and stuff.

    If you think this is actually a Kielbasa, then you've been eating too much of tha Hillshire Farms bs. Real Kielbasa has large chunks of meat and is NOT emulsified... this is some sort of Frankensausage. That being said, i'm sure it's tasty! Just not a Kielbasa.

    the amount of people saying the literal term for what they're doing (value added product) is pretentious is just nutty. some dude literally said "everything that a restaurant sells is value added product". buying a cut of steak and then cooking that steak doesn't make it a value added product. you take a product that is comparatively cheap, like wheat or milk, and turn it into a more valuable product, like flour and cheese respectively. so many people sit there and hear a term they can't understand and call the person using it pretentious. cooking your cut of steak and calling it a value added product would be pretentious, but that isn't what they're talking about. it's literally what all food processing plants do, and anyone who calls that pretentious simply lost all sense of the word.

    I would rather have smaller sausage.
    But , I can see this as a nice cheesy mortadella or something to that effect as a sausage with onions, bell peppers and some BBQ beans for ome helluva Fank n Beans meal that will make your heart sing.

    I like how Americans say “degrees” to clarify wether it’s Celsius or Fahrenheit, mainly cause it just shows how stupid Americans are and makes absolutely no sense as they’re both degrees!

    Why do people always find something to bitch about... A video about where the main focus is FOOD, certain small minded people in the comments feel like they need to bitch about no more than a 15 second clip of them jokingly talking about a horoscope, whether you believe in it or not chill out to many people are so bitchy and up-tight now days.
