Cajun andouille sausages anywhere?

I tried to pick up some andoille sausages today and realized that what constitutes an andouille at my usual meat counter, isn't what I was used to getting in the States. I'm looking for the cajun type of smoked andouille made from pork butt with traditional cajun spices. What I keep finding here is the french version made from stomach or tripe. I've tried IGA, William J Walter, Supermarche PA and both butchers at Marche 400. Has anyone seen this anywhere?

  1. It seems the search for andouille continues (not French style andouillette). Here's a lead from 2007 at the "boucherie diagonally across from William P. Walter, the boucherie inside Atwater market that sells the sausages, bacon, and deli meats".

      Thanks, for some reason my search didn't return any of those threads. I'll for sure try this butcher at Atwater. $25.95/kilo makes me cringe, but if he's got a corner on the market I guess they can charge whatever they want.
