This place is well stocked and ready to go. Bring a

A delightful meat shop/butcher block not too far from Baton Rouge.
The freezer cases are filled with a wide assortment of
tantalizing meats and prepared dishes from gumbo to spaghetti sauce,
shrimp stuffed mushrooms, and hot tamales. They even have an
extensive selection of party trays.
Location: 7251 Hwy 1 South, Addis, Louisiana 70710 (there is also a St. Francisville location)
Price: $3.19 lb
Presentation: The link is cut into pieces, wrapped in butcher paper, and readied for the eating.
Casing: A crisp and tight casing.
Meat/Rice Ratio: More rice than meat? Perhaps. It is a close 50/50 ratio for sure.
Texture: A dryish filling of pulverized meat and rice.
Spice: Mild in the heat department.
Overall Flavor: The flavor of this link includes a noted hint of
liver. With small bits of green onion and a pulverized interior,
the dry filling offers a significantly salacious sensation to your
senses. It is darn good and darn satisfying. Would I serve
it to my momma? Yes.

You may have to put in a special order for their famous "Hock and
Cock Stew." Smoking over 1,000 pounds of meat per day keep them
