    Hey guys, looking for a good brand of Kielbasa in the North East area, and for some input

    Told the wife I would smoke some Kielbasa for our new years party.

    Which Brand?

    Fresh or cooked?

    Will be smoked then put in Sauer Kraut

    We have been very lucky with kielbasa in the past, but about 3 years ago we cooked a batch that was so greasy that it ruined the whole pot, the saurkraut sucked up the grease...nasty, and the meat turned to mush.

    Being in Philly, I would imagine there would be a decent Polish Deli. Check it out. I've got one here in Hamilton, and they've got 8-10 different varieties of kielbasa.

    I have hears that Swiackis in Port Richmond is pretty good.

    Gonna pick up some next week uncooked, for a test run.

    Wanted to try this recipe as well, reminds me of Drunk'n Dogs

    • Kielbasa
    • Clear Karo
    • 7Up
    Cut kielbasa into 1"pieces. Line bottom of large pan with kielbasa.

    Pour 7Up over kielbasa to cover. Boil over high heat, stirring often. Continue to boil until all the 7Up is gone and bottom of pan is staring to brown and is glazing kielbasa. Make sure you stir constantly so the kielbasa does not burn.

    When kielbasa is brown and glazed, add more soda and 1/3 bottle Clear Karo. Continue cooking down as before until kielbasa becomes very brown, glazed and candy like. Keep stirring until all the soda and karo are gone then turn onto a serving platter immediately.
