Lafayette, LA 70501

Served out of a humble house in Lafayette, some of the best BBQ in all of Louisiana can be found at Boucaniere (Cajun for "smokehouse"). This counter-serve joint is cooking up spicy, rice-stuffed boudin, and sandwiches that combine either pork, chicken, or brisket with crispy smoked sausages. The brisket and pulled pork are smoked low and slow for 12-14 hours, letting tons of flavor soak in. You'll want to go for the Campos Special, a tender, hearty pairing of brisket and sausage. Check out the selection of local music they have for purchase, too.
