Do any of "you people" actually eat "Cajun Pasta"?


With shrimp, chicken, andouille, red cream sauce, linguine, cajun spice, etc?

Or is this just a made up dish that the rest of America eats to feel cajun.

"We people" eat just about anything, as long as it's made by we people, using real LA ingredients, and it starts with a roux.

It's basically made up here with frozen tiny shrimp, gross Andouille, maybe some decent chicken, and most likely heavy cream, "cajun seasoning", maybe some other dried herbs.

Y'all would be appalled.

It's an Alfredo sauce with andouille. The andouille is why some call it "Cajun". Some will add roasted red peppers to give it the red color. Some actually put tomatoes in it. I like it sans tomatoes.

Now I know you really are from Ohio. Might I suggest a trip to Portland and a meal of Cajun potato soup?

I've had it before. It was an absolute abortion. I feel in the right hands potentially the dish could be tasty, though I myself would never label it Cajun or Creole.

Yes. Lots of fumes. Unburned wood is mostly carbon monoxide. Some carbon dioxide, small amounts of methanes too. All toxic to humans.

Sorry. Thought you wre being fecicious. This board is like the OT these days.

What are your concerns on toxicity? The wood frame? The painted exterior? You have to basically "season" the interior as you would a cast iron pot.

Best results. Season the hell out of it many times over.

naw, i was being serious, thats why i said something about email the other day.. a thin steel should be ok for flashing, but a plywood enclousre would probly need a couple of fires in it first to season it, right?

also, a steel fire pot should be ok..i think..

We lined the lower interior of ours with the .020" gauge SS roofing flashing. That keeps the radiant heat direstcly off the wood sides and will not burn the frame. Yes we have a hardwood plywood frame that has been "seasoned" many many times over. But the heat your smoking at is lower than what will burn the wood.

You have to understand the basic physics of a smokehouse; you have a heat source in the bottom that is pushing heat to the top, rising vertically. The walls contain it but the flow is from a bottom front vent to a top back vent, so your heat, and likewise your smoke, is contantly travelling upward. You're containing the heat but allowing it to flow in a regulated manner up and out; it's not staying still and overheating the sides. Yet, your temp is holding at 250°-280° in the center of the upper chamber as heat rises and that's where you want it at.

re: Do any of "you people" actually eat "Cajun Pasta"?


Ours was a 20x20 ft. made with logs and chinking, just like the log cabins.. they were built by workers on the farm.. inside it had curing boxes, where we put hams in salt for a certain number of days then hung hams and sausage from the rafters. In the middle of the room, there was a fire pit on the dirt floor.. I've always wanted to recreate something similar, but on a smaller scale.. Then I saw yours and figured that was the answer to my 30 year "want"... BUT, everybody I talk to about materials have mentioned fumes,,, but, you're right, it's not gonna get hot enough to allow toxins to "burn off" of the materials..
