Billy's is my personal favorite Boudin. His Krotz Springs store is on the way to my hunting lease and I eat it far more than I should during hunting season. It's definitely a legit Acadaina boudin shop, unlike some of the tourist traps....

One other thing that helps is to drill some holes in your charcoal pan to increase airflow. I used to have a smoker just like yours and It had a terrible problem with the ash from the top coals smothering the fire out. If you use lump charcoal instead of briquettes, it will help too becuase it pro...

You can go to a legit butcher like Scallans and buy a whole, half or quarter cow butchered to your liking. My brother in law does this twice a year. Problem is, i find the meat to be meh......
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Looking for a simple homemade dressing to go with grilled shrimp salad.... - Tigersminus21 on 10/12/12 at 2:59 pm|
I think Sensation dressing is pretty much the Alpha dressing. Easy to make and really tasty.
Some people would say it's too punchy for something delicate like shrimp. I say not.
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tbsps lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced and mashed
2 tbsps white vin...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: What to smoke? - Tigersminus21 on 10/12/12 at 11:29 am|
I smoke by temp, not time but usually brisket and butt take me about 10 hours of smoking time. I did pulled pork for the Auburn game. I put them on around 7ish and they were ready for game time....
| Food and Drink Board|| re: What to smoke? - Tigersminus21 on 10/12/12 at 11:11 am|
That's not enough time to do brisket or pork butt.
Spare ribs, you can do in 6hrs
Babybacks, you can do in 5 hrs
Pork Loin, you can do in 4 hrs
Chicken, you can do in 4 hours
I, personally am doing chicken in keeping with the "Gamecock" theme.

| Food and Drink Board|| re: Suggestion for French Quarter restaurant needed - Tigersminus21 on 10/11/12 at 4:35 pm|
Try the Bon Ton Cafe'. Solid old school New Orleans food. Prices are not crazy, staff is friendly. Atmosphere is cozy and a bit dated but that's part of the charm IMO. Catfish bites for the table followed by some turtle soup and crabmeat au gratin is as solid a meal as you will get anywhere....

It's a classic. You have to admire anybody who can run a business for that long with no drop off in quality. It's every bit is good now as it was 20 years ago when I was in school at USL.
Holy crap... 20 years.... i'm getting old....

Make a little roux, except stop it way short of what you would use for gumbo. Get it to about the color of peanut butter. Get your liquid up to a boil and whisk in the roux a little at at a time until it's the right consistency. Way better than straight flour....

NOLA is a unique place, and Fitzmorris fits like a glove. His act wouldn't fly anywhere else, but hey that's part of the charm. We are talking about the same radio market where a former host is doing time on a murder rap and most of the announcers are in dire need of speach therapy....

I think Gino's is what you are looking for. I consider it one of the best restaurants in BR. Waitstaff are pros and the dining room runs like a well oiled machine. The menu is what you would expect from an old school American - Italian restaurant and they execute it flawlessly. (as they should af...
