Andouille is a spiced, heavily smoked pork sausage that was brought to the New World by the French colonists of Louisiana, and Cajun andouille is the best-known variety in the United States. The spiciest of all the variants, Cajun andouille is made of butt or shank meat and fat, seasoned with salt, cracked black pepper, and garlic, and traditionally smoked over pecan wood and sugar cane.
