Robbie Bornais is off to British Columbia.

Windsor’s sausage making legend, and owner of Robbie’s Gourmet Sausage Co., Bornais is once again competing in The Great Canadian Sausage Making Competition with the goal to bring home the trophy for Canada’s Best Sausage.

This is Bornais' second time competing in the competition. The first time, as an amateur in 2012, he won 4 gold medals and has his Chorizo named Best Sausage in Canada. He returned in 2014 as a professional and brought home a bronze for the Chorizo, a silver for his Apple Butter & Sage sausage and a gold for his Merguez and Coppa sausages.

He’s entered new submissions for this edition of the competition including:

  • Smoked Crazy Canuck which are smoked at MamO Burger with help from Ryan Odette. They’re made with maple infused bacon, sweet basil and chili peppers.
  • Pomegranate Chorizo, which is a brand new sausage he created.  Ingredients include poblano’s, pomegranate molasses, cilantro and lime.
  • Jamaican Jerk Chicken.
  • Cranberry Pecan
  • Brat
  • English Banger
  • And defending champs Merguez and Coppa

UPDATE: Bornais took home a silver medal at the 2016 Great Canadian Sausage Making Competition for his Italian style capicollo!
