    Hi Elvajerry!

    It is a very highly seasoned flavored smoked pork. Easily available in Louisiana.

    Here is a recipe for making tasso itself:

    Tasso Recipe

    Brine
    1 3/4 cup curing salt
    1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    2 tablespoons onion powder
    2 tablespoons garlic powder
    1 gallon water
    1 (10 pound) pork butt roast

    In a medium bowl, combine salt, sugar, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and water. Mix until the salt and sugar are dissolved in the water. Pour brine over pork. Allow pork to soak in brine for one week in the refrigerator.

    Remove pork from brine, then discard brine. Rinse and pat dry the pork.

    Preheat an outdoor smoker for 200 to 225 degrees F (95 to 110 degrees C).

    Rub
    2 tablespoons ground mace
    2 tablespoons garlic powder
    2 tablespoons onion powder
    2 tablespoons smoked paprika
    1 tablespoon dried sage
    1 tablespoon dried thyme
    2 tablespoons honey

    In a medium bowl, mix together all ingredients. Evenly coat the pork with the rub and work it in with your fingers. Place a roasting rack in a drip pan and lay the meat on the rack. Smoke at 200 to 225 degrees F (95 to 110 degrees C) for12 hours, or until internal pork temperature reaches 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

    Makes 30 servings.
