Full Custom Gospel BBQ tries out Mr. G's BBQ in Corpus Christi, TX. Sounds like he had a great time. The sausage comment is worth quoting in full - "All of this paled in comparison to the excellent link of sausage. Juice shot out of the link as I took a big bite out of the tip. The casing was taut with a juicy filling that wasn’t too fatty. The meat mix was heavy on the pork (if not all pork) a great seasoning mix, heavy on the cracked black pepper. With sausage this good and the fact that they’re carrying on a bit of the Joe Cotten tradition makes this place worth a visit.".
