Linguica sausage, Portuguese style? Not, Chorizo!


Recommended Posts

Enough with the Chorizo!  Where can I find good Portuguese Linguica sausage or, barring that, REAL Spanish Chorizo?  I live in East Texas so anywhere about two hours outside of Dallas on I-20 or I-30 is good for me.  Texarkana or Shreveport are a distant probability if there is a good place for sausage there without anything closer.

 

TIA,

Sid

Mail order for meat products where I live isn't really an option.  Plus shipping irregularities are really bad.  I had a guaranteed 3-day package that took two weeks arrive today, well actually it is still at the Post Office!

Wow, willing to drive 2 hours for some sausages! I salute that man and his passion! "Linguica?" I will find it, I will cook it, and I will eat it. Thanks for the tip!

After substandard local grocery store options and similar @#$*! from Walmart, I really want something that tastes good and has good quality.  Goo from a bunch of random animal parts they can't sell with poor quality spices might be acceptable during a food shortage brought on by panic buying but, ENOUGH!

 

Don't make me buy a $600 grinder, a $200 stuffer and, import some real spices (not the sawdust commonly sold at Walmart and the local grocery stores)!

 

I want some real sausage!  Slovacek's in West, Tx is ~4 hours away so, I can't make that drive more than a few times a year.  Now that it is cold out, Usinger's is on my watch list for a shipping deal!  I don't want to go that far North but, some day I hope to see Usinger's in person!

 

How many people's 'BUCKET LIST' includes sausage stops all across the nation?  😍

With KitchenAid, it really depends on the specific model.  The Fiber/Plastic gears don't hold up very well.  I also don't want to burn out the one I bought ~30 years ago.  There is also a lot of difference in grind quality.  For the cost of the mixer grinder, you can buy a good quality 12# grinder that will work much better if you are grinding more than a really small amount (like a 1/2~1#).
