andouille sausage (Triangle, NC)

Jeanne Nov 9, 2010 03:42 PM

Where can I buy smoked andouille sausage in the triangle area? I've not seen in in years - since the wonderful store down at Brightleaf in Durham closed (can't remember the name). Thanks.

    Harris Teeter generally has it in their butcher case.

      I would imagine Southern Season, Whole Foods, and I believe I've even seen it at Weaver Street.

        HT also carries Aidells andouille. In fact, it's time to pick some up for the post-Thanksgiving turkey and andouille gumbo.

        If you want locally made you might try DaVinci's in Wake Forest.

        I always like to skip the chain stores if I can, so I will give a shout out to Halgo's. Great selection of sausages and other polish specialites.

          You're thinking of Fowlers in Durham, I think. I really enjoyed the andouille that the BBQ joint made but since they've closed I doubt it is available now (I don't think their catering operation has it).

          I really like the smoked sausage that Brinkley Farms has at the farmers market. It is polish, not andouille but very, very good. I've used it in jambalaya with good results. I added more heat elsewhere to make up the difference.

            Yes, I am talking about Fowlers. I've tried Southern Seasons and Whole Foods (although not Whole Foods for awhile) and all they had was fresh andouille - not smoked.

              Just ate at The Pig in Chapel Hill & the owner told me they make their own Andouille sausage; their gumbo was great so why not see if they'll sell you some.
