    Hirsch's Meat Market in Plano sells many different types of sausage. Give them a try. As always, I'd call first, though.

        I Live in Allen - That's a straight shot across 121 for me.

        Need to check that place out anyway....

          They have a very small (about 3 tables) eatery. The boiled shrimp in the case are quite alluring, but if you're tempted to order a plate of fried shrimp, you'll be sorely disappointed when you are served frozen popcorn shrimp. :( That said, the fried oysters were small (a couple of months ago), but tasty and barely cooked, as they should be.

          If you cook red beans and rice, be sure to pick up a bag of their Camellia brand beans. You'll be surprised at the creaminess of the finished bean and liquor as compared to the local grocery store brand.

          Kuby's in Snider Plaza (Dallas) has a pretty good andouille. Almost as good as what I buy at Dorignac's in New Orleans - makes a pretty good gumbo.
