Test bowl looks, well....RAD !!!!

Don't know about y'all, but I dance while I'm cookin' quite often !!!

"If you walk in off the street
You can take the load right off your feet
Mamma bring the menu to your seat
But the bill of fare be short & sweet
Won't find no etouffe
Mamm never ever could cook it that way
She's all ancien regime
No nouvell cuisine
She cook gumbo
A mighty rad gumbo
It's the only way she can go
Down at the Club Rad Gumbo"

Kevin that is some outstanding looking Gumbo. I'm thinking the office is going in this Monday with an extra hop in their step.

K.A.M., It ALL looks delicious. If I had food like that I would never go out of the house.

I do have a question, okay, several questions. Embarassed

I have made gumbo many times, with varying degrees of success. Usually good, sometimes better, as I am always tinkering with it. Do you have a go-to recipe you would care to share or is it proprietary? If so, I understand perfectly.
Also, do (or could) you sweat/saute the trinity before it goes in the roux?
And, I have never tried eggs in it Embarassed When? Where? How?

Sorry for all the questions but it looks fantastic and I am always looking to improve my product. Thanks.

Kevin,
Looks like a great meal from here... I wonder what a big bowl of your gumbo would do to me right now... Shocked Laughing

Thank You George,Very Happy yes T-Boy's makes some mighty fine Boudain. Make Mama a Trivet she will love it. Very Happy

Thank You Rick,Very Happy yes that is the thread I have slept a bit since that cook Brother thank You again.Very Happy

Thank You Ken, Very Happy that is some good juke music Brother. Very Happy

Thank You Todd, Very Happy They were a happy happy crowd. Very Happy

Thank You DrunkPlumber, Very Happy The house smelled good all day and into the night. Very Happy
Here is a link to my basic gumbo you can increase it if need be and it works well you just have to adjust the roux and ingrediants. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Very Happy
http://thesmokering.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=22174
I am not saying you cant sweat the trinity before adding to the roux I do not do this, the trinity caramelizes and darkens the roux to the color that I want in my gumbo. Al the flavors come together in the roux and you may lose some of this if you separate the two.
Debbie boils and peels the eggs after I have the basic gumbo put together and it is simmering. Once I like the flavor the eggs go in. They will cook for an average of 3 hrs. to soak up the goodness.

Thank You Chuck, Very Happy Brother there is nothing clear about my gumbo you better pass. Wink Laughing Very Happy Very Happy

Kam,

You smoke some of the best looking turkeys I have ever seen. Do you brine before smoking? Any tips you are willing to share would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy your posts.

Thanks Kevin, Mama don't need a trivet, she needs cookin lessons. Shocked Although the dog seems to be catching on. Wink

Drunk Plumber, DO NOT share that gumbo. After you do one time, folks will be on you for when your making more.
You'll spend all your time doing it. Shocked

Thank You TBASS, Very Happy I do on occasion brine my birds especially if we are going to eat them for just that. When I am cooking them for gumbos I just smoke them. I do like to use seasoning on my turkeys that do not contain sugar due to the amount of time in the smoker. When I smoke them for gumbos I use what seasoning I am using in my gumbo such as Tony's or T-Boy's I also like "Natures Own". I always pan my birds and add a can of broth or water to the pan. I face the breast away from the firebox and run the cooker at 275° to 300° that is about it. I do prefer Oak for my wood.

Thank You BBcue-z. Very Happy

Thank You Manana. Very Happy

Thank You DrunkPlumber, Very Happy I hope the recipe works for you and look forward to seeing some pics. Very Happy

George, your very welcome Sir. Very Happy Tell Mama it is just steel and cooks just as well as the store bought stuff. Very Happy "Trust Me" Very Happy

Kevin, if it was only as easy as explaining the steel part.

Seems to be the fire meets food part that baffles my Baby. Shocked

Oh well, the dog is doing well, she can't grind worth a chit though. Sad

I'm sure that is the case my friend. Embarassed

I still blame it on her lack of thumbs though. Rolling Eyes
I keep telling her, a little grind and a little paint, makes a welder what he ain't. Wink

k.a.m. thanks for the link on T-Boy's. I'm ordering some.

1buckie- That link to Little Feat- Rad Gumbo (and others) was awesome, especially when the cajun piano kicks in!
Don't get to hear much cajun piano, wish there was more.

Man I love to dance, and often do it when I'm cooking but thought I was the only one that did it, good to see someone else likes getting down!
