Recipe by chefmick

When I was a truck driver I traveled all over the country. Occasionally I'd meet someone you wouldn't expect. This recipe is from one of those pleasant surprises in Louisiana. salt meat is simply a dried and salted meat, usually beef. If you don't have that in your area i suggest increasing ham to 1.5 lbs and using salt cured ham. For the pork sausage i use cajon style.
