Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 23rd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here
The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Conner, Washington. I’ll Depart here August 13th.
Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.
The motorhome is parked at Chicot State Park near Ville Platte, Louisiana. We are scheduled to depart here today.
Yesterday we took the Bronco and drove around some area back roads and because we need to do some grocery shopping, we ended up back in Ville Platte about 10 miles south of our parking location.
One of the places we ended up visiting is Teet’s Food Store which enjoys a reputation for the best smoked meats in the area.
Lawrence “Teet” DeVille founded the business in 1995. We had the pleasure of meeting him. He speaks with a heavy French accent when he told us about his business. The business is now under the ownership of son Chris who has worked there for over 25 years. Third generation Luke also works there but was not there when we visited. You can buy their products from their official website link…
Here are some photos that I took…
As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…
Lawrence and Ruby DeVille a long tie ago…
Lawrence and Chris…
They took us out back and showed us the smokehouse that has been in operation since 1974…
They use oak wood to start a fire in this container, then wheel it into the smokehouse.,,
Depending on how much meat is in the smokehouse, the process takes 6-8 hours…
