Back to the original question, give Torbay Butchery a try and ask for Dave. Sadly we don't live nearby any more, but worth a trip back every now and then. Can't comment about meat percentage, but I know it's pretty high and Dave can tell you exactly what goes into them.

Thanks for that and everybody, this has been so useful, I dont want to avoid fillers but have to and to be honest non filler sausages are better imo.

I will keep going to the Albany German butcher whose sausages are definitely 100% meat, but being German they eat a lout of Schwein :-), although the variety at that butcher is insane, I love all the cold cuts and pate like wurst for spreading on things (sometimes i just take a teaspoon of it oops).

But would be nice to get some quality invasive wild species in the diet again (deer of all breeds, goats, wild pig etc) and some beef. Will try Pinehill on the same day as they kinda close together. Then another trip try the ECB butchers recommended here.

I plan to buy in bulk and freeze them but have them loosely individual so I can just pull out a banger, quick defrost and in the pan, no fuss auto immune diet, some veges and fruit for carbs and Im good. ๐Ÿ‘

IME goat sausages were very gamey.  Great for curried sausages but otherwise a bit too much.

Yes, if gamey isnt your thing its not a good choice. I found the Beard Brothers a bit of a disappointment with their game sausages, really dont taste of much IMHO. 

Where abouts are you Mike? Do you hunt? That is the best way to control the flavor, get directly to the source. If it wasnt for my serious illness I would still be roaming the country myself :-). So much good tucker out there.

Im buying a new electric controlled southern US style pitt smoker/grill, plan to slow smoke my sausages. I still fish/spearfish (its exhausting too for me though), so I do a lot of fish in the smoker. You can smoke and grill at the same time, which produces intensely awesome Burgers, dials the flame grilled feeling to 11/10 haha ;-p

Pity you arenโ€™t in Wellington where we have a butcher in Island Bay who has super sausages that have won prizes.

As an aside...you mentioned MS and triggered my mind to a programme I watched on TV recently, you may already have seen. It can now be found on thedoctorstv.com about Dr.Terry Wahls who has MS and has written a book that food is your medicine and how changes in her diet reversed her MS symptoms. Stories like hers spark hope. Good luck in finding the perfect snarler.

I'm in Blenheim. I mostly hunt my own game and catch my own seafood.  A friend of mine has a big block in the Sounds.  It has goats in abundance, the odd pig and deer and occasional feral cattle (no farms for miles around and no tags) cattle.

 

I don't mind gamey ... I eat mutton-bird.

 

The goats I shot for sausages were all young animals, so I was surprised they were so strong tasting.  Maybe they had been eating something that gave them that flavour.  No drama - they made a good curry.  Next time I'll have the butcher throw some curry paste in the sausage mix.

I'm currently experimenting with a smoke injector system for my BBQ.  It has side burner, so the idea is to get a big teapot, load with wood chips and sit it on the side burner to produce smoke.  I'll use a little battery powered fan to push the smoke out into the BBQ

Dr.Terry Wahls  

 

Yes she is VERY good. Basically she found it to be a Mitochondria issue regulating the DNA. 

So her diet is 4 cups of cruciferous veges, 4 cups of leafy greens, 4 cups of coloured vegies and small portions of meat and fish.

It is kind of like Paleo but focussing on the greens heavily.
