Howdy wranglers, smoke addicts, and sausage craftsmen everywhere! Welcome to SausagesWest atThe Rusty Spur Ranch. I’m Chuckwagon and this is the place we say “Howdy” to new members. I reckon it’s also for “kickin’ up a little corral dust and stringin’ whizzers” (telling lies and tall tales), and gittin’ acquainted as well. How about lettin’ us know who you are and where you’re from? We’d like to know where you new members hang your Stetsons as well as a few more details about yourselves, so give us a big “Yeeee Haaaaw” and tell us all about yourself!
Don’t be shy… you are mighty welcome in our outfit pards; you’re going to like this place. The recipes alone will have you grinnin’ like a burro eatin’ cactus! Pull up some campfire or some shade and pour some Arbuckles strong enough to float a Colt. Join in the story-tellin’ and fun. Be sure to check out all our sausage-making recipes in the recipe section and start making sausage! Most of all, have fun as you learn.
Tarnation! I reckon the language of the Old West could be just a little confusing to us today. For instance, today we would say something like, “Well, if that don’t beat all”. In the Old West, you would have heard, “Well, if that don’t take the rag off the bush”. And if something or someone was superior or outstanding – such as a man displaying leadership, he was the “Tall hog at the trough”! Well, I wish to introduce you to such a man… my ol’ pardner El DuckO in Texas. He thinks he’s a Duck and he will drive you crazy, but actually he’s a pretty smart ol’ bird! So, wipe yer’ chins waddies, and get a wiggle on. Fork your hosses; I reckon its time to absquatulate and mosey on down to the crumb castle. Bime-by, the belly cheater just had to cut up some bear sign! So grab yer eatin’ irons and reloadin’ outfits you bull nurses, and skedaddle. Catawampously sidle up with that dough puncher. ”Oh yes, the west could be a harsh place with its own language alright. Have you got technical questions? Post ‘em and let us know. If we don’t have an answer, we’ll find one for you. We’re not so far away… only about “two whoops and a holler “.
Oh, I almost forgot! Be sure to click on the Duk’s photo above. He’s the guy NOT wearing his cowboy hat!
(I like to click right between his eyes!)… Now, click on the enlarged photo (again)… to enlarge it even more! This is his mayorial-candidate photo although we found it on a “wanted poster” in Texas! He actually looks pretty good for a man nearly a hundred years old… ‘eh?
