There’s nothing better than a backyard barbecue on a warm day in South Louisiana. Catching up with old friends, making memories with your family, and enjoying some spicy Cajun cooking with an iced cold drink.
We want you to make the most of your time with your friends and family this summer, so we’ve put together a few tips, tricks, and hacks to help save you some time and maximize flavor at the grill.
Bump up the Boudin
We’re going to let you in on a little secret, boudin tastes great in just about everything at a BBQ. It’s a real crowd-pleaser, so why not use more of it? Make boudin patties for burgers, pass out boudin party links, make a boudin dip, grill it, air fry it, smoke it—you can’t miss!
Boudin Grilling Guide: Grill boudin over medium heat for 2 to 5 minutes on each side or until the casing is golden brown. For a non-crispy casing, wrap in aluminum foil before placing on the grill.
Use Brisket Sausage for Savory Burgers
We heard this little trick from a few customers and ga de don they are right! For savory sweet burgers like none other, here’s what you do. Take our brisket & deer sausage, remove it from the casing and mix it into your burgers for a multi-protein flavor explosion. Our blend of spices mixes beautifully with the steen syrup in the sausage.
Save Time with Grill-Ready Meats
Cooking on the grill doesn’t have to mean hours of prep time in the kitchen. You can let us handle the prep work while you pass a good time.
We have a large variety of grill-ready meats – stuffed pork chops, seasoned beef patties, and even chicken thighs stuffed with jalapeno and cream cheese.

Use Hogs Head Cheese for an Easy Appetizer
Say cheese! Hog’s head cheese, also known as Cajun pâté, is a savory spread made of pork meat, pork skin, onions, bell peppers, green onions, and a blend of spices.

Use Marinated Meats for Perfect Kabobs
Nothing says summer grilling quite like kabobs. To get the most tender pieces of meat and maximize your flavors, take advantage of our marinated options. Pair our chicken and pork with an array of fresh fruits and vegetables. Skewer them all up and sprinkle some of our Best Stop Seasoning for a little extra kick.
