Weirdest Sausage We've Ever Eaten: Rattlesnake and Rabbit at Wurst Tex in Austin

We're suckers for novelty, which may explain why we got so excited about the "Predator and Prey" at the Wurst Tex cart in Austin, a rattlesnake and rabbit sausage (!) with peppers and onions on a long bun. While a tasty sausage, juicy-middled and well-seasoned and as meaty as you'd like, those meats weren't really discernible, particularly with peppers and onions thrown on top. If you'd told me I was eating a chicken sausage, I'd have believed you.

It's really just a reminder that you can stuff anything into a sausage. What's the weirdest sausage you've ever eaten? And did you enjoy the experience?
