The good folks at Teet’s Food Store sent me a fine selection of their products including some smoked sausages and boudin. Pictured is their Pork Jalapeno Cheese Sausage.
Louisiana is a great smoked sausage state because there are so many local meat shops and independent groceries that make their own smoked products and there is always an argument about whose is best with most folks defaulting to the product they knew in their neck of the woods when growing up.
Teet’s is a grocery store located in Ville Platte La just a bit above Lafayette. If you’re going to Louisiana to eat specialties like boudin, cracklins, and smoked sausages, you want to be down in the southern part of the state in my opinion for the authentic stuff. And Teet’s is about as authentic as it gets.
This sausage hit all the right notes with a great smoky balance of jalapeno and cheese without hiding the good porkiness of a fine smoked sausage product.
One of the great things about Teet’s is you can order all their best products right off their website. I recommend you not delay and get your order in today. You won’t be disappointed in any of their products. (I’d recommend some variety of the smoked sausage, some boudin, and some cracklin to get an idea of what you’ve been missing. If you have some budget left, grab some stuffed pork chops – delicious!)
