    It looks good so far Nepas! I add some jalapenos to the andouilli recipe I have. It kicks it up a notch.

    Nice Job! I have never had gator before, I bet that sausage would be really good in some duck gumbo!

    Looks great as always Rick!
     
  11. Looks good. Doesn't Andouille have bigger chunks in it? Or is it more about the seasonings? Of course I may not know what I'm talking about. [​IMG]

    Got the gator andouille all vac sealed and ready to go.

    SCULLY

    It is lean and can be dry if not done right. It dont taste like chicken, taste like gator...LOL

    I ground 1 lb of gator, cut in with 3 lbs of lean ground pork and 1 lbs of pork fat. Or uncured & non smoked belly
