Lovely!!!  Not being Cajun or even close to it, I had some in NO a few years back and fell in love..........only to find I should have waited about 50-100 miles West on the way to visit my son and his wife in Houston.
 
 
I noticed on your Website you mention other variations ( I think I actually had Crawfish ones)......does the Boudin refer to the rice inclusion?  To be honest, up until that trip I had shied away from it since I thought the boudin referred to blood and in blood sausages or black pudding......not my favs

Boudin sausage always has rice, that's what makes it boudin-except for boudin blanc de rethel, a French variation that contains no starch. There is boudin noir, boudin rouge and boudin blanc.

We're stoked to be putting out a brand new boudin next month at our East Austin Charcuterie Project Pop Up. We're combining Benton's Country Ham with smoked shrimp,+green onions, Hatch chiles, pork stock and long grain rice.

Scrumptiouschef, it looks good. For a home cook, where do you think I could find the pig intestines?

Thanks, FriedClamFanatic. I will check them out. I'd like to find a local option also, so I can just go and buy a little to try out the technique.

We bought 'em off Amazon til we found a grocery store (HEB) that carried them. Soak in the fridge for 24 hours for maximum pliability, rinse very, very thoroughly and have at it.

I think you can also make boudin patties with no need for casings.
 
I love boudin and buy it whenever I see it which isn't that often.
 
Or, I buy it from Poches.  I like their seasoning the best.

Check with some meat markets/supermarkets that make their own sausages. They'll usually sell you some. Keep them moist until ready to use.

I'll try one of the meat markets here and see if I can buy just a few for a test. Thanks.

Scrumptiouschef I missed your pop-up cause I was out of town. That would have been one of my absolute go-to events. Having said that, who in your estimation makes and/or sells the best boudin in town. And I don't mind driving.

Poche's boudin is good but their real strength is their meat n 3 cafeteria line. We always stop there on the way to NOLA to load up some big plates and sit in their taxidermy lounge.
