I added 1 teaspoon of crushed garlic to 1 cup mayo. This is a definite winner!

Hit the spot! The garlic mayo was a little tart for us, but I think that is just our personal taste hence the 5 stars. We all enjoyed this. I did use Andouille Sausage for the smoked sausage.Made for Rail Riding Rowdies for ZWT 5
