MEYER'S ELGIN SAUSAGE

No one can resist the savory taste of Meyer’s Elgin Sausage. Not even our estranged vegan cousin Gerard Meyer (who, by the way, we recently caught on camera trying to use the smoker as a body spray).

See, our famous restaurant is more than just an eatery. It’s an experience. A place where ‘Cuetopians slap on their bibs, roll up their sleeves and love up that sweet, sweet barbecue. Of course, after four generations of lip-smackin’ know-how, it’s no wonder we have people coming back day after day.

Some say it’s the high-quality meats, special blends of spices, natural casings and that hickory smoke flavor that make Meyer’s sausage so incredibly tempting.

But most say the success of Meyer’s Sausage Company and Meyer’s Elgin Smokehouse is based on one not-so-secret ingredient: over 75 years of family pride and four generations of tradition.

TIMELINE

1888

Henry Meyer smuggles the family sausage recipe from Germany into Texas.

1915

The mouths of Texans across the state start to water as the Meyer’s sausage starts to smoke.

1929

Depression era sets in. Neighbors come from miles around to line up at R.G. Meyer’s home for a whiff of his secret herbs and spices.

1949

Sick of people trampling his grass, R.G. opens Meyer’s Elgin Sausage Company.

1949

The first sausage is made at Meyer’s Elgin Sausage. When the first customer bites into the first sausage, something magical happens. A genie forms out of the BBQ smoke. As the townsfolk gasped at the amazing sight, a small child named Buddy made the greatest wish ever wished, and the entire town was transformed into ‘Cuetopia, Texas.

1951

The first meatyorologist of ‘Cuetopia predicts an epic meatsoon will settle over Elgin and the surrounding areas for years to come. (He has since been voted the most accurate weather forecaster in history.)

1959

Rudolf’s son, Buddy – the mythical wish maker – takes over the family company and creates the first sausage-flavored breakfast cereal – Smokey Oh’s. (We’re still tweaking his recipe a bit.)

1963

Fightin’ Sausageheads football team wins first of 16 state titles. Mayor of ‘Cuetopia’s prized milk cow volunteers to be barbecued for the victory celebration.

1968

1994

The Great Sauceing of ’94. Earl, the town party animal, was hitting the sauce and accidentally drove into the ‘Cuetopia BBQ Sauce Tower, causing thousands of gallons of Meyer’s delicious BBQ sauce to flood the town in what became the tastiest day in ‘Cuetopia history.

1998

Gregg and Gary open the Meyer’s Elgin Smokehouse. They soon begin gaining national recognition for their tasty Texas BBQ. President Bill Clinton nominates ‘Cuetopia for statehood, but the Vegetaria Party was losing too many members so the vote was canceled in favor of a BBQ.

2005

Meyer’s begins shipping their savory Texas briskets, sausages and sauces to barbeque lovers nationwide. Postal carriers with bloodhound-like noses rejoice.

2012

Meyer’s starts shipping their famous BBQ pork ribs to meatpoverished states across the nation. ‘Cuetopia, Texas council members unveil new city flag with “Ribs over ‘Cuetopia” motif.
