2015 saw a myriad of sausage flavours, from duck and orange to lamb and rosemary, pork and fennel and a whole lot more what will 2016 bring? Can last year's winners, Gary's Quality Meats (who produced a 'Beau Thai' sausage) again scoop the pool? Or will Neil's Meats - runners up last year with their Aussie lamb, honey and mint sausage - sneak ahead this time?
