Dr Bruin, thank you for that. I'm surprised to find Montreal smoked meat in LA, as you're right it's an acquired taste. I had never seen it here before. I'll have to go to RBC and try it.
Also, to the OP: You can find poutine at a few places in town. I haven't had a great version here in LA, but if you've got an itch you can find it.
