Best Stop

FoodChic Mar 4, 2011 06:42 AM

I've completely given up on the Andouille in the DFW area, so yesterday I ordered 8 lbs of andouille from Best Stop. With packaging and shipping it was just over $100.

I'm looking forward to making gumbo with it, as I was volunteered to bring gumbo into work for Fat Tuesday.

This stuff better be good! I'll report back.

    It's great, but $100??? Wouldn't it be more fun (and probably cheaper) to take a nice weekend and stock up?

      No. I'll pay the $100 rather than take a 13 hour round trip in the car. Not to mention the hotel it would require, as I'm too old to want to spend all day in the car.

      I doubt you will be disappointed. I get it about once a month. Hold up beautifully in gumbo, unlike some that fall apart.

        Well, I'm dissappointed. My order was supposed to show up this morning and nothing has arrived.
        I called to get a tracking number and no one at the store would help me - told me I'd have to call Monday. Not really helpful since i have to do gumbo for 30 on Tuesday.

        Panic mode has set in.
