PROUD Pittsworth butchers Jade and Katrina Thompson's lamb, spinach and feta sausage went down a treat at the 2014 Australian Meat Industry Council's National Sausage King Competition.
The couple, who run Thomo's Pittsworth Meats, received the top accolade in the Australian lamb/open class category.
Competition winners were announced on February 1, at the Cypress Lakes Resort, in the Hunter Valley, NSW.
Mrs Thompson said she creates the recipes and her husband Jade, makes the snags.
"Spinach and feta goes well together and decided to try it with lamb," she said.
"We made a couple batches, got it right, and decided to put it in the competition.
"We thought we were privileged to win the state competition and to make the top six at nationals - to win it was unbelievable."
Top-notch sausage lovers have been travelling from the Gold Coast, Bribie Island and Narrabri, NSW, to taste the winning snag.
There are plenty of other unique varieties to try such as the chicken, cheese and pineapple sausage or the Spanish chorizo.
They are also making plans to celebrate their 10th anniversary of owning the butchery on April 13.
Mrs Thompson said she has been busy putting her brain to use coming up with a new sausage recipe to enter in this year's competition.
Queensland took home two other titles in 2014 AMIC National Sausage King Competition.
First place in the traditional Australian pork category was awarded to Rob Glenny, Master Meats, Warana.
Second place in the continental category went to Rob Ashton, Ashton's Butchery, Pittsworth.
Mrs Thompson said with three kids at school, they have no intention of leaving Pittsworth any time soon.
"There are a lot of things to keep people here in Pittsworth - not just the best sausage in Australia."
