Delaware Delicacies Smoke House Hancock, NY

I'm in search of Ray Turners smoked eel.....from what I've read one must travel to Hancock. True?

  1. We stopped by there once. It's at end of gravel/dirt road, beware if you are worried about scratching your car. The eel is really really good. The guy is a bit of a weirdo, probably best not to let conversation stray too far off topics of eel & smoked items. I think he'll mail it to you if you call. I doubt very much that he'll ever have a website. The area is very pretty but there isn't much else to do in the immediate vicinity if you aren't into flyfishing. The town nearby is kinda rednecky.
