Man, made this last night.

Outrageous... and I didn't even have the finest of ingredients... but it's one of the better jambs I've ever eaten, seriously.



Glad it came out good for you.

quote:

If you can get temple meat (pork) try it in you jamb next time instead of the butt....good stuff...you will thank me later.


Absolutely agree. Nothing even close to as good. Nothing.

quote:

Wondering if any of our Jambalaya experts have the ratios that they could post....such as a 1 gallon pot needs ?pounds of rice, ?gallons of water,/ ? pounds of pork, ? pounds of sausage and feeds? people, so that it could be extroplated for various size pots

also at what size pot do you use a diffrent ratio of water to rice

In other words I have been using a 1 gallon pot on the stove and I am now getting a 5 gallon pot and need a little help


On a one gallon pot i'll go with the standard 2:1 ration on water to rice. At the 2 gallon mark i'll reduce to 1.8:1 then at 5 gallon i'll go 1.6:1. Never go lower than that, even on a 20 gallon.

Meat ratios are not as cut and dry. Depends on what you're using. Temple meat being the A-1 meat to use I go about 3 lbs pork and 1 lb sausage per gallon. Pork butt roast add another 1.5 lb pork due to water content loss in the meat. Chicken is a whole different matter. I use only boneless thighs so I'll go 4 lbs per gallon on that. Sausage stays the same. Go 1.2 to 2 lb yellow onion per gallon.

Generally with sides such as beans and salad and bread I figure 8 people per gallon. Unless its for deer camp drunk men, then figure 5 per gallon.

Great looking St. Amant Jamb there
You ever use that chicken base for your stock that they have at SAMS Club. Have used it before on a large jambalaya


No. Never have. Sounds good. Might have to try that. Usually have my own homeade chicken stock frozen.

re: Jambalaya - Gonzales Style with pics.


My mom's Jambalaya comes from a Gonzales recipe. It's very good and she uses the Converted Rice in the box instead of the bag rice--the rice is flavorful and not mushy at all/taste and texture is how rice should be (big pet peeve of mine is when people make jambalaya with bag rice and it is mushy and gross).

Looks delicious. But it also looks wet I thought they like the rice to not stick together in Gonzales? I prefer it wet over dry.

Go to the outdoor board cookbook. There are some Jam recipes along with a ton of other great stuff.

The "Better than Bouillon" brand is better than most canned broth.

I would go with 8lbs rice, 12 pounds pork temple meat or chicken or mixed, 5 lbs of sausage, 8 pounds onions. You can feed 35 to 40 with sides on that pot of Jamb.

re: Jambalaya - Gonzales Style with pics.


Is that a 6qt pot for that recipe? I've never tried to make jambalaya, but with a solid recipe like this one, it makes me want to give it a try.

What changes would you make if you made it in cast aluminum instead of cast iron? I have a ceramic coated cast iron Dutch oven, but I think it's only 5 qt

i had never done one either, but then followed this post step by step and it came great!

with the exception of me burning just a little bit of my rice on the first try.

but i've done quite a few since then, and it seeems to be a real crowd pleaser

Don't stir. Roll it from bottom to top. Re-cover and cut heat off.
i'm embarrassed i don't know the answer to my own question considering that it's about Rice of all things, but what do you mean by this?

Looks great but I differ in one way; I never, ever take anything out of the pot. And there is no reason to.

re: Jambalaya - Gonzales Style with pics.


i was going to say
using your big spoon, scrape up big spoonfuls of rice and gently 'roll' it up to the top

do that a couple times from the bottom
