10,000lbs of sausage probably made it smell REAL good for awhile.
Gonna go hit Sam's and buy me a few cases before the price goes up. Glad to see they plan to rebuild since their's is the only sausage I use at home and for my business.

Holmes used to have the best Jalpeno sausage in my books! My kids grew up on it.
