These are so addictive. Thor remembered a "beer sausage" from his college days and set out to recreate it, since they are now non-existant. Be sure to use the entire bunch of dill, it does make a difference. I prefer to use Penzeys' Crushed Brown Mustard Seeds as they seem to impart a richer, more full-bodied flavor than regular mustard powder (but feel free to substitute the powder). You can also use the brine for pickled eggs. Cooking time is optimal chilling time.
