Lobster Shells

That was a good thought; called Rex's, and though he was a very friendly and personable guy, he said he would only sell them in 20-pound bags directly from the supplier, though he'd be willing to sell me some of the stock he's already made ... might go that route if I can't find any other. Apparently he uses all his and then some.

Lobster Shells

Does anyone know where I might look to find lobster shells, scraps, carcasses, etc? I'm making it for stock and only really need about 4 pounds at a time, but would like to know of a reliable place to find it. CM doesn't carry anything of the sort, and TJ's offers carcasses at around $5 a pound, but you've got to buy at least 15 pounds. Anyone know where I might be able to find it at a smaller scale?

Thanks,

Restaurant recommendation near 360 and Mopac

I've got to set up a lunch with a potential client next week, and pretty much have carte blanche - but I don't know the area at all. It's just got to be within a couple miles of that intersection - any advice would be welcome!

Tasso

Gracias. I was told by a friend that they didn't have it, but his reliability is questionable on these things ...

Tasso

Anyone know where I can get my hands on some Tasso around the Richardson/N. Dallas area? Wanting to make Prudhomme's jambalaya ....

Vitek's barbecue in Waco. It's called a Gut Pack, and both smoked brisket and sausage are included.
