PHOENIX (FOX 10) - It's almost the weekend and there's all sorts of stuff going on around the Valley, including a festival where the chefs could be setting records.
The sixth annual Sausage Fest at Brat Haus is bringing out the brats. Five to six chefs from around the Valley will be competing, making their own rendition of an Artisan sausage.
"It's really neat just getting to see the different flavor profiles and to [just] see these chefs compete amongst themselves and put into an environment they aren't normally in," said Chad Black, general manager at Brat Haus.
And you can expect some of the creations to be quite interesting.
"[There's] sundried tomatoes with watermelon," Black said. "They do an absolutely magnificent job [and it's] stuff that's just mouthwatering."
The guests will be the judges and those attending will vote for their favorite sausage. The winner will be crowned sausage king or queen.
And let's not forget Brat Haus will once again roll out Arizona's largest sausage. Last year, the brat was 113-feet long. This year, Black plans to introduce a 125-foot long sausage, which is cooked on a custom grill.
"We give everyone at the Sausage Fest gloves and we line up at the back parking lot all the way in the front street," Black said. "And everybody gets to hold the brat - hopefully not breaking it. And then we take a tape measure out and measure it."
The event will start at noon and go until 8 p.m. on Sunday. And for just 10 bucks, you're able to join in on the fun.
100 percent of the money collected at the door will go toward Honor Flight Arizona, a non-profit organization that sends World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam veterans to see their memorials in Washington, D.C.
