Derek Luszcz and his sister Yolanda grew up working for their dad at Gene's Sausage Shop, which opened in 1972 and still specializes in about 60 kinds of cured and uncured artisanal sausages. Their shop has traditional smokehouses with cherrywood and mesquite chips—you can watch the butchers bring the sausages out steaming and ready to eat.
