Gloucester Shack Series – 1898 Linguiça Smokehouse

I think this could be the oldest in the country.

Linguiça – is a dry Sausage, consists of coarsely chopped pork shoulder (both the lean and the fat), plenty of garlic and paprika.  Its shape, rather like a long and slender lingua (tongue) explains the name.

Chouriço - is a chunkier and juicier Sausage and very garlicky, made in links about 10 inches long and 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

      If the shacks are located on private property, I respect their privacy. Most of the shack photos however are taken from the street area, and can easily be identified..
