Azorean Tradition – Linguiça Making in Gloucester since 1898



Steve and Jerry Burke carry on the tradition of making Azorean Linguiça in their family’s 1898 Linguiça Smoke house. The recipe they use is from their great grandmother who came to this country from Lajes do Pico Azores. The Azorean Linguiça smoke house may be the oldest operating in the country.  Watch Video below:

    What a neat story and interview! Great work by all, including Mr. Simoes. BTW, I’ve had the privilege of watching the Burke’s linguica process, and also the devouring of linguica sandwiches & red wine after! Terrific Portuguese sausage!

    Great Video. I remember my grandfather making Linguiça at his home on Linnet Place back in the forties. It was great. Wish I had his recipe.

    Great to hear about Azorean Linguica made right here in Gloucester. Where do you buy it?

    I may be related to these guys!! My great grandparents came from the Azores and according to a 1940 Census they lived on Linnet Place!!! It would be pretty cool to find out if we are related so that i can piece together my family history.
