The World’s Best Beef Jerky!

22 Nov

Forget about commercial Slim Jim and Jack Links’ jerky, the world’s finest dried and spiced meat is made by our friends at Bourque Specialties in Port Barre, LA. We first met Shannon and Chad Bourque when we were road tripping through the Bayou a couple year’s back. I was blown away with their product quality and their friendliness, so we decided to share them with the rest of the planet. Lucky you!

The beef jerky is packed as you see it above. The meat is incredibly spicy and smoky. It is also pretty darn tender as far as beef jerkys go. No, this stuff will not rip your dentures out. However, the flavor is over the top fabulous. I challenge you to find a better jerky anywhere. This is perhaps the world’s most perfect food for delivering maximum protein and taste.

Want some now? Never fear, Bourque’s ships their products worldwide.

The pork boudin at Bourque’s is also world class. Made of pork, rice and spices, the boudin is best when squeezed atop a Saltine cracker and blasted with a splash of Tabasco sauce. At least that is how we roll here at DixieDining.com.

This is a link of good old spicy Louisiana Boudin — good eating!

The Southern Foodways Alliance has been on the road tracking down the finest boudin and gumbo that the great state of Louisiana has to offer. This field study has resulted in some wonderful photographs which are right down our alley. Take a long look at http://www.flickr.com/photos/southernfoodwaysalliance/
