   Some Of America's Best Sausage Comes From A Tiny Town Down South

With barely 4,000 inhabitants (and slowly dwindling), Evergreen, Alabama isn't all that much to look at, a classically sleepy, ye olde southern town along the railroad tracks, out in the scrubby hinterlands between the old port city of Mobile and the state capital of Montgomery. So why, exactly, is Evergreen so famous?  

Sausage, that's why. Evergreen is the seat of Conecuh County, which is an important fact, because if you say the word Conecuh to pretty much anyone in Alabama, their eyes will likely light up, and they'll probably suddenly be hungry, assuming they weren't already.

Conecuh County, after all, is where some of the state's favorite sausage is made, and has been made since 1947 by the same family. Practically hanging over Interstate 65, the plant's hickory-stoked smokers aimed pretty much directly at the traffic passing by on its way to someplace else, the Conecuh Sausage Company reportedly produces upwards of 30,000, 40,000 pounds of sausage each day, along with a range of other products like smoked turkey, ham, bacon, and their special seasoning blends.
