Tallahasee to Cape San Blas

3MTA3 Nov 3, 2009 12:55 PM

Will be doing up a pot of Gumbo thanksgiving week and wondering where to score some Andouille, Tasso, or any other (locally) prepared sausages/meats, ect. Or ANYTHING remarkable that I just can't get anywhere else.

    Since you say ANYTHING, please see the recent thread we had on the deviled crab patties unique to that stretch of road - http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/662875 . I HIGHLY recommend you try stopping by Posey's Steam Room and Oyster Bar in Panacea, FL, where you can get a plate of local shrimp, beautifully briny local oysters, and one of these deviled crab patties, and two sides for $13. Truly one of the best fried seafood plates I've had anywhere in my deliberate quest to order such a plate anywhere I travel.

      If it isn't seafood bring it with you. We spend a week on Cape San Blas every fall/winter and bring all of our own meat except seafoood.

        Bradley's Country Store has good smoked sausage.

        I've had some really good bacon from Limestone Meat House in Monticello. They don't seem to have a website:
        305 Limestone Rd
        Monticello, FL 32344

        Another place in Monticello... I've had their bacon and it was good, but not as good as Limestone: http://www.johnstonsmeatmarket.com

        You won't find local made Andouille or Tasso around here.
