There are a lot of powerhouse boudinieres on this list but we have to ask why no Best Stop and why no Don’s Specialty Meats? We believe it’s due to the nearby community of Scott having their own boudin competition and since that’s where both Best Stop and Don’s have their headquarters, the two monoliths have decided to not boost the rival community.
And we are praying that T-Jim’s, featured here brings a cast iron cook pot filled with hot cracklins as they make the finest ones we’ve ever encountered.
