To make the biscuits:
Preheat the Oven to 450°
Throughly mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
At this point, take the frozen butter out of the freezer and shred it using the larger side of a cheese grater.
Mix all of the frozen butter directly into the dry ingredients, taking care to quickly distribute them evenly.
Make a hole in the middle of the bowl, pouring the buttermilk directly in the center. Mix with a spatula just until the ingredients are combined. It should be very sticky.
Place the dough on a floured surface and fold it 4-5 times. At this point gently roll it to 1 inch thickness. Could out 2 inch biscuits gently and place them on a pan. Try to do as many as possible without reworking the dough as the first "pass" of biscuits will certainly be the best tasting.
Brush melted butter on top of biscuits and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden on top.
To make the gravy:
Turn your skillet on medium heat and heat the fat (bacon grease/butter) on it.
Place the sausage onto the pan and mix accordingly. Stir consistently to get an even browning of the meat. If you opted to use maple syrup, use it now.
Once you are sure the meat has been mostly cooked, add the flour. Allow it to cook for 2 minutes while stirring it, giving the flour time to cook and brown (extra flavor!)
Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly. Once this has been done, add the salt and pepper. Definitely taste it and if more is needed, do so accordingly.
Place the gravy on "low" and top the fresh biscuits with it as soon as possible! Enjoy!
