Over the past few years,I’ve talked about CApps Sausage more than a few times. As a matter of fact, I’ve pulled several post from several years ago to bring it forward below. The reason is that this weekend is the final weekend before summer you can grab some Capps Sausage before they close until reopening in the Fall. Open This Friday, Saturday & Sunday! Remember this?
I was just in the kitchen cooking up some Capps Sausage I got a few weeks ago out in Beauregard. Then I thought I’d find the post I made about my first trip out there, so I could repost it. Funny, but that post was made exactly 2 years ago today (Jan 6, 2011)! Some info in not valid, since I don’t write that column any longer in the paper, but it’s worth a re-read!
You are all so kind to me. I hear more comments about the one column I do each month in the Opelika-Auburn News than I do about anything I do here at the Opelika Daily News, named after Opelika’s Newspaper of the sixties. The most recent installment was the trip out to Billy Capp’s place, where he prepares lots of sausage and bacon each year.
Since that trip, I’ve shared some of the sausage with Pam and Robert at Flip Flop Foto and Susan, the cute lady behind the bar at Sid’s. As a matter of fact, I took the bacon I bought and some of the patty sausage to Sid’s this past weekend, where it was cooked up and served with my weekly breakfast. And no, I didn’t get discount on breakfast from bringing my own sausage and bacon.
Now, I’ve had several folks asking for directions, and if you read the article in the OA News, you know I had no clue on returning, but I asked again tonight and here’s what I’ve got. Good Luck! Click here for some pictures from the trip!
Drive toward Beauregard from Opelika on Highway 51. Turn left at (the former) Wingman Motorcycle (the Old Dupree Store) on Lee Road 44. That’s going to be after you gone a bit past the High School. Then go to the deadend of that road and turn right. Not sure of that road number, but it doesn’t matter, because in about half a mile, you turn right onto Lee Road 100. Here’s where it gets interesting… You’ll go about a mile, then there’s a big curve to the right. The Sausage place is a black little building on the left side of the road. There’s a sign out front on the road. Like I said, good luck! And enjoy the best sausage in town.
