Juneau’s Cajun Meats in Marksville, LA = A Rated Boudin

Juneaus2

Ambiance: Look for the golden building across from the casino in Marksville, LA. A spiffy interior with a nice offering of fresh and smoked meats, cracklin, stuffed items, seasonings, and more. A young and eager staff take care of the particulars.

THE BOUDIN

Price: 3.29 lb

Presentation: Wrapped in wax paper and placed in a large paper “boat” then into a brown paper bag.

Casing: .A tremendous casing. Crispy and pleasing.

Meat/Rice Ratio: More rice than meat.

Texture: Long grains of rice, some ground, some still intact define this link which, despite the rice, is still meaty and hearty. The filling is somewhat on the loose side, but it is not greasy.

Juneau’s Smoke House: Where the Good Things Happen.

Spice: Mild

Overall Flavor: Stupendous! My mouth is watering as I write this. Meaty, ricey, tinged with a slightly smoky flavor, this is a link you’ll crave.

Comments: The brilliant color of this brilliant link is just one of its appealing features. Juneau’s is perfectly situated across from the large casino in Marksville. So, if you’re there looking for gaming and good food, then this will be a must stop. They also have smoked boudin and it too is stupefyingly good!  In fact, we love using Juneau’s Smoked Boudin in our Smoked Boudin Stuffed Pork Loin.
