When it comes to famous Texas kolaches, there’s nothing quite like the Big Earl Kolache.
Why the Big Earl?
‘Big Earl’, Earl Campbell, (also nick-named The Tyler Rose) is a former American running back for the Houston Oilers. He played for eight seasons, from 1978-1985, and is known as the #3 power back of all time. In 1991 he was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. If you watch his highlight real, it’s easy to see why.
Earl Campbell Meat Products, Inc.
Since retiring from the game, Earl Campbell has shared his love of cooking barbecue, ribs, and sausage with meat lovers throughout Texas and beyond. His signature line of meats, aptly named Earl Campbell Meat Products, has been growing in popularity for over twenty years. Earl Campbell’s ‘Hot Links’ have become one of the top-selling sausage products in the country. They are known for having mouth-watering flavor, ‘with just the right amount of spice.’
