Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Meats is announcing a new specialty sausage product now available for purchase.  The newest item offered by the Nueske family’s Wisconsin smokehouse is an applewood smoked natural casing Jalapeño Bacon Cheddar Bratwurst.   

This pure pork bratwurst is smoked over sweet applewood and blended with chunks of real Wisconsin cheddar cheese, savory pieces of Nueske’s own highly-acclaimed applewood smoked bacon, and zesty heat from flecks of jalapeño peppers.
