Chaudin - Stuffed Pig's stomach

So, the first time I've ever tried to cook a chaudin. Most recipes I've seen say to put it in a Dutch oven or a crock pot and cook it like a roast. I'm in Texas, so if it looks like it can go on a grill, I'm going for it.

 

While everything else was cooking over the charcoal, I put the chaudin on the side - so it could cook slow, with the lid down. After about an hour and a half, I put it over the coals - let the skin (pork stomach, actually) get crispy.

 

It was actually pretty good - like a spicy pork meatloaf on the inside, crispy chewy pork stomach on the outside. I think most people don't eat the casing (sorta like haggis), but it was actually okay.

    Thanks for the review! I've always been curious about the chaudin at Poche's... perhaps we'll have to pick one up tomorrow running through Breaux Bridge!

    If you do stop, go to Babineaux's slaughterhouse just up the street - as far as I know, they are the only place that still sells red boudin - I wanted to buy some on this trip to Houston, but they were all out - and the next batch wasn't gonna be ready till later that afternoon.

    As for the chaudin - though it's not something I would get all the time, I was happy with it - I'll probably pick up another one and try to cook it more traditionally.
