re: gumbo advice


I am venting my nger at last nights debacle with a bit of my poli board anger, but his recipe would get him a kick tn the nether regions wither dorsal or ventral from me. I was doing the slow cooking thing of Europe before it became popular over there. I don't shop for the week(except for things that can only be had by the week) I shop daily and make my menu as I shop. I go from tabula rasa to a meal when I walk into the store. If (tig dup) thinks the BS he is doing is making gumbo then I wish him a short life span as he is providing his progeny with the concept that if it is from a box it's food.

I do not subscribe to that recipe mind you,.;( but it's a start with the expectation that you will eventually graduate to making your own roux and stock etc...

CIT that "cayan" threw me off.

re: gumbo advice


Marie sometimes you have to vent. The recipe I read gave me the same kind of red-ass that someone gave me last year on his ineptitude about his knowledge of chocolate. Sometimes speaking softly is not the answer, a bigstick and speaking loudly can go hand in hand.

If it is not andouille it is not from southeast La.

re: gumbo advice


I use andouille and various kinds depending on what I have or what I can get at the time. I'm making 5 gallons right now using a mild sausage because I'm making it for my younger nieces who don't like pepper so much. I keep a mild gumbo on hand for them.

I often use Rabideaux's smoked pork sausage from Iowa, LA. I also use andouille from the Best Stop in Scott. If I happen to be in the area, I'll pick up andouille from Jacob's in LaPlace but I mostly travel between Lake Charles and Baton Rouge.

Don't buy your roux from the store; make your own.

Gumbo is easy as hell.


Roux, trinity, stock/water, chicken, sausage, spices.


It'll taste good. The more you make, the more you figure out what you like.

In other words...if it is from southeast LA then it is andouille?


That doesn't make sense.

I may be slightly drunk, but you come off as a super douche.


Who gives a frick if someone uses a jar of roux to make a gumbo?

re: gumbo advice


No one should give a damn if store bought is your preference...that's fine. But, if you'll learn to make home-made roux, the gumbo will be much better.

re: gumbo advice


Listen to Otis even though he's a smart arse.

I made an oven roux since folks here have talked about that. I'll post about it tomorrow, but I'm sold. Folks who are afraid of making a good roux should try it. Tastes just like my stovetop version. Takes a while but it would be hard to burn. Far superior to jarred. You'd have to be without a brain to screw it up. the who uses "cayan" might mess it up, though.

re: gumbo advice


I still don't know what you're talking about Otis.

Is OG still verbally abusing the idiot on the OB?

re: gumbo advice


Don't coddle their palates, GG. They need to have the same gumbo...the same sausage...that everyone else eats. As for Geaut, he's probably still whooping on those boys.
