Curly-Q Grilled Sausages

In this video, you’ll see how to make cool, curly-Q-cut Italian sausages on the grill. You’ll start with cold cooked sausages, parboiling them briefly and popping them in the fridge. Why? Because you can’t spiral-cut a limp, raw sausage. Next, you’ll skewer your cold sausage, and slice it, turning as you go to create the spiral. Watch Chef John in action! The cool, coiled shape isn’t just fun or frivolous, it’s also fully functional: the extra surface area picks up additional delicious smoky, caramelized flavors from the grill. Watch the video, then get Chef John’s recipe for Curly-Q Grilled Sausages. Try them in a sausage bun with homemade basil and garlic mayonnaise.

Looks very delicious, my only issue is I wish there were more recipes w/ beef or turkey meat. Don't eat pork.

This is Awesome! I'm going to do tis for sausage sandwiches, what a great way to hold peppers, onions & the sauce on the meat. Thank You Chef John!
