April CharcutePalooza challenge: shrimp etouffee with tasso ham two ways.
I’ve always wondered what made Canadian bacon Canadian. Is it that Canadians don’t know how to make real bacon? Does it have something to do with Virginia and hams? was it originally a marketing ploy by McDonalds?
We went whole hog in April ending up with a 27lb ham just in time for the Charcutepalooza Hot Smoke Challenge.
This tasso ham figured prominently in insane smoked mac and cheese with ramps and truffle oil.
