Known by locals and old-timers as Elgin Hot Sausage, Elgin Hot Guts, or simply Hot Guts, this is the sausage that started it all. All beef, coarsely ground, in a natural pork casing, seasoned with cracked black pepper. It is what Southside is best known for and is their most popular seller. On any given Saturday, Southside Market sells around 1400 lbs.! All of their sausage is made fresh in-house, daily for a level of quality, taste, and enjoyment you can’t find anywhere else since 1882.
Back in 1882, when the first cuts of meat were sold from Southside Market’s founder William Moon’s wagon, his mantra was “Butcher today, deliver tomorrow.” Without refrigeration, the unsold fresh cuts of meat were preserved by smoking and spiced to make sausages. It wasn’t long before these “hot guts” became famous, with people all over coming to Elgin, Texas, to sample their smoked sausages. While Southside Market’s owners have changed in the past 135 years, their dedication to crafting the best sausages in Texas has not, which is why nearly a century and a half since that first cut of meat was sold, Elgin is known as the Sausage Capital of Texas.
