Misplaced Texan

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I was born in Louisiana and grew up in Dallas (Lewisville) TX so I have soft spot in my heart for Cajun food and BBQ. I moved to Mooresville NC 3 years ago and luckily I can cook or I would be severly deprived of my 2 favorite food groups. There is no cajun food here and I have not really adapted to Carolina BBQ. I have been smoking for several years on a small Brinkmann model but I have more to learn than share. I also have a large La Caja China roasting box that I would be curious if anyone else out there owns. It's really made for pigs but I end up using it mostly for chickens. I am also planning to build a reverse flow smoker out of a 250 gallon tank. I will be asking for advise when that project starts.

Glad to be here!

Welcome from Austin, Tx. You're gonna love this forum. Don't want to rub it in, but the family and I had a big crawfish boil last Sunday. Nothing in the smoker, but the mudbugs were delish.

Your not going to believe this but I brought back 70 lbs of crawfish from Mobile AL last Friday. I travel a lot so I brought back 2 coolers as checked baggage. The people at US Air were not very happy about it so I don't know if I can pull it off again.

I am extremely jealous that you are closer to the Salt Lick than me.

Welcome to SMF...Just smoked a Fattie stuffed with Boudain as my wife is part cajun...Momma has to send us the boudain from Beaumont so it is like gold around here. Can't get it in WV. Enjoy the site.

Hey Crawfishslayer, I live in Mooresville too. Have you bought anything at Mooresville Meat Center? I bought a brisket that was about 11 lbs that was pretty good and I've gotten some babybacks there too. Their prices are a little higher than WM (which is where I've gotten most of my others) but the quality seems pretty good so far.
