We found Boucherie Meats in the Montclair Farmers Market. This small stand sells sausages and artisanal cured meats. Peter Jackson, owner boasts his meats are hand crafted quality products. We were in a sausage type of mood and these looked great. Chaurice was our first choice. This is a Cajun flavored pork sausage. It is reputed to be hot and spicy. Our second choice was the Merguez a smaller lamb sausage that has an spicy earthy flavor. We loaded up our politically correct re-usable cloth farmers market bag and returned home to fire up the grill.
The grill was hot and smoky for our cook. Both of these sausages were delicate and full of sausage love (fat). We had to use the kettle top to tame the flames from the dripping sausages. Lickety split they were done. Both of these sausages had a home made type of flavor. The Chaurice was our favorite with its spicy but not to hot flair. This sausage was full of porky goodness. The Merquez was interesting with its earthy flavor. I am not sure if I would be able to tell you it was lamb unless I was told the fact. We enjoyed our purchase from Boucherie Meats. Stop by the Montclair market and experience some for yourself.
