This is a traditional Cajun dish that combines the complexities of smoked sausage and the rich flavors that you get from roux.  This has been a family favorite of ours since I was a child and is a perfect meal to introduce anyone to wild game.  The beauty of this dish is in its simplicity and doesn’t require much “kitchen” talent.  Admittedly, I used a store bought roux for this recipe but you are welcome to make your own.   The recipe calls for a smoked sausage, but really you can use any wild game sausage you have.

We are recommend using our Antelope Andouille Sausage recipe. This recipe uses pre-ground antelope mixed 75% to 25% with pork fat. You can also mix ½” fat cubes into your meat before piping into the casing to get a more tradition Andouille recipe. Prepare the andouille sausages on the smoker before slicing and adding to this recipe.
