Here is another weekly TV cooking show made in my home town. I cant believe some of the things Marissa and her sister talk about on this one, they get kinda racy with some overt comments. I like when she shows the Meliton and hints at what it resembles. " You wanna see my Veggetti?" :shock: I'll never eat Red snapper again and not think of this :)

Woah I love boudin! The Community darkroast is blackest coffee ever. Open the bag, the smell alone gets me cranked!
:wanted: I wish I could get the best bona fide boudin from southern LA.
What's best "brand" in your opinion that I could order if I find a place that'd ship it up here?
About the best up here is Zummo's. It's still good.
We had an old Cajun living here that made and stuffed it himself. The real deal

I worked down in Leesville, La about 30 yrs ago. They sold hot Boudin at the gas stations like they sell corndogs and chicken up here. Pork, shrimp, gator...They even had Boudin on pizzas. Drooling!

This is the one you want, all kinds of fresh made goodness, and they ship :thumbup:

You have to try their Pepper Jack Boudin Balls

We were lucky to get a new Bergerons store/resttaurant in the small town near me, the lunch time crowd is just about standing room only and the freezers are full of everything imaginable :)
I used to have to drive to Port Allen ( Across the river from Baton Rouge)

And I drink it black :) When you open the bag of coffee and smell that aroma, honesty makes you high! Love to drive next to the Community coffee plant in Port Allen, the smell is in the air.

I was a Board Operator for BASF corp and the contractor workers used to come into the control room first thing in the morning with boxes of Bergerons Boudin to get on our good side :P ( i wrote out and approved their work permits for the day )

Cool. I was stationed at Barksdale AFB at Shrev/Bossier back in late 80's.
That's a 3 hour road trip down memory lane. Thx for the info! :thumbup:
Amen again on Community dark. Black is the only way.
Wow, now I'm dreaming about smellin' their plant!

Barksdale is where I enlisted and took the oath when i joined the Marine Corps.
Marines who enlisted on the east side of the Mississippi River went to Parris Island, S.C. Boot camp so i crossed the river bc i wanted to go to San Diego. :)

There's a gas station just outside of Natchitoches, LA that sells some incredible boudin. You can get it mild or spicy & plain or fried. And the meat pies are freakin' awesome.

I've got some baby back ribs cooking in the oven. I found tons of recipes on YouTube, but use the easiest one. Basically ribs cut individually and give a quick light citrus marinade, and rub with a brown sugar, salt, pepper, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder/salt, oregano mix. Cook in an alluminum pan covered in foil meat side down at 250-300 for 2 1/2 hours, then put BBQ sauce if desired and cook under broiler for about 5 minutes.
They don't look particularly awesome (without sauce) but come out super moist and falling off the bone.
