Dried Sausages - looking for a vendor
Spanish chorizo would be good. I've found it in the refrigerator section here, but it doesn't need to be. None of this kind of thing is ever refrigerated in Spain, where 1/3 of every grocery store seems to be devoted to cured meats. Surdyks or Byerlys usually has Palacios brand which is the one I am familiar with.
A hunk of Spanish jamon would be good, too. Tienda.com is my go-to if I have time and don't wanna run around the cities looking.
Good thought -- almost anyplace that has a decent cheese counter will have a decent cured meet selection. Kowalski's, Surdyk's, St. Paul Cheese Shop/France 44, Lunds on Lake St. ...
Of course it could not hurt to pick them up on the way, via a quick stop for summer sausage & one or two of the terrific smoked fish options at Northern Waters Smokehaus in the Dewitt building in downtown Duluth. Russ Kendall's on Rte. 61 just before Two Harbors is also good -- good enough that if I had to choose between either sausage or fish I might just agree to beef jerky stix from the gas station and brown sugar-cured fish from RK.
