So today I was driving downtown and listening to that great public radio food show “The Splendid Table,” when what did I hear but Jane and Michael Stern just raving about a Cajun home cooking joint in Lafayette called Johnson’s Boucaniere.  Oh, my sainted tante, just look at the menu, would you? Excerpt:

Smoked Garlic Sausage Po-Boy 

Our sausage is made in-house and smoked in our 16 foot long smoker. We take a link of garlic pork sausage, butterfly it, and put it on the griddle. Served on a toasted Evangeline Maid Po-Boy bun with our original recipe BBQ sauce.

Begnaud Special 

Slow-smoked brisket sandwich with smoked garlic pork sausage topped with our homemade BBQ sauce.

Googlemaps tells me it is 22 hrs 9 min from where I sit typing this to Johnson’s. Googlemaps also tells me that as of this time next week, it will 1 hr 36 minutes to Johnson’s from my new front door. I think the numbers are going my way!
