Help! I can't find Tasso...



I moved to Durham, NC a few months ago and recently wanted tasso to use for my red beans. I have been unable to find it so far. I tried Wal-Mart, Kroger, and Whole Foods. Does anyone live or has anyone lived in this area and can tell me where to find it?

Cajun Grocer.com, but it won't be that good. Try Jacob's in Laplace...they ship.

Poche's tasso is my favorite of the tassos I've tried.

I haven't tasted Poche's but the lack of paprika in the ingredients seemed odd.

It has a little more smoke and spice. I tried tasso from Cochon and the amount of paprika really turned me off. I like paprika, but I like smokey/spicy seasoning meats.

Thanks for all the advice. I'm going to try Teets and Poche first.

Better chance of finding Jimmy Hoffa, Big Foot and Elvis all taking the same cab than you have of finding Tasso or more than a handful of people here in California who even know what it is...So I feel your pain....But I got me a smoker and a family recipe and now I have me Tasso whenever I want and don't have to pay an arm and a leg to have it shipped here....So, make your own.

Report back once you get them in. Also try a smoked ponce from teets, good stuff.

when we were in Northern Arkansas a couple of months ago, we went to walmarks to get some food and they wanted over $18 for a pound of frozen crawfish

Rbama13, sorry got sidetracked. Here you go. This will do about 5lbs of pork loin.

3 tbsp kosher Salt
2 tsp cayenne or To Taste
4 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp fresh garlic, minced
2 tbsp coarsely Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp white Pepper
1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar

What I do first is put the loin unseasoned in the fridge between two plates with a cast iron skillet on the top plate to press the meat. Leave it there for 48 hours. I then Dry the pork, season it, then it goes back uncovered in the fridge for another 72 hours. After that it goes in the smoker at 180-190 degrees for 8 hours...

Now I'm not gonna lie to you. About a month ago my brother made some Tasso in the same manner but used a rub of (he said) 2/3 Tony's and 1/3 brown sugar.....I liked his better and we've been doing the recipe I listed for as long as I can remember.

Hopes this helps.

Thanks Cali To DV! I really appreciate it. I have always wanted to make my own Tasso because it is hard to find here as well.
