Lafayette Louisiana Boudin Cook-Off October 20th 2012 Results

If ever there was the perfect moment to drive from Austin to Lafayette, Louisiana it would have been this past weekend for the big boudin cook-off. Twenty practitioners of the prairie art of boudin making met on Louisiana’s western lands for the ultimate craft sausage  showdown.

When the dust settled T-boy’s out of Mamou hoisted the trophy for the most considered category: Traditional. Those old school Cajun hosscats didn’t stop there. They also took home first place in Specialty as well as People’s Choice.

Unbelievable. You know the competition is beyond fierce when legendary Johnson’s Boucaniere can only manage a 3rd place in Unlinked.

And it’s with a great sense of shame that I must admit I’ve never tried T-boys. I’ve been to a lot of the boudin parlors in Western Louisiana but this one has escaped me. A situation I will be remedying on my next visit to the Pelican State.
