Old Newbe From Lafayette, La

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I joined a while back ago but have not been a regular to the thread. My wife opened up a Restaurant based on her fathers Meat market and grocery store that opened in 1937 and closed in 2005. We smoke our own sausages, Tassos, Beef Jerky, Pulled Pork , Chickens and Brisket. Thanks to your bacon thread I am dry curing my first batch of bacon. Hope to post my first Q-view after the curing process is over. Lots of great information in this site.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.

Thanks all for your welcome backs. The name of the restaurant is Johnson's Boucaniere (french for smokehouse). The address is 1111 St. John Street. Lafayette, La 70501. Here is a couple of links; www.myspace.com/johnsonsboucaniere and www.facebook.com/johnsonsboucaniere

Come by and i'll show you my set-up. I have 3 smoking chambers for sausage, tasso, bacon, etc and a manuel spinning (cooks so even that it did not need to spin while cooking, plus a motor is just something that will need to be fixed down the road; right?) rotiserie for our ribs, chicken, pork and briskets. Also i have a 2 percy grills.
