re: Peche Tonight: What should I get? - Gris Gris
[quote]I like to pull open the fried bread, plop on oyster in the cavity, and top it with some cocktail sauce. Not a bad way to end a day and begin a meal. [/quote] I'm sure that works very well. I was surprised I liked it as much as I did because I'm not a fan of those fried pistolettes that be...

re: Shrimp stock - Gris Gris
I would freeze it right away and no way I'd wait until Sunday. Stuff is golden and I wouldn't risk it getting that ammonia smell myself. Others may differ, but I don't mess with seafood. Did you cool it well before refrigerating it last night? ...

re: i need a good easy cajun sauce for pasta and shrimp - Gris Gris
I'm not crazy about pasta frozen in sauces. The pasta tends to get too mushy for my taste. Cooked shrimp doesn't freeze well either in my experience, though I don't know what you have in mind. Are you looking to freeze just the sauce? ...

re: Nordic Ware Stovetop Indoor/Outdoor Smoker - Gris Gris
It really doesn't smoke much because it's closed. At least, that's the case with the Cameron smoker. I have a really strong exhaust since I have a gas grill in my stove top if it ever smokes much. You only use 1-2 T of smoke dust in theses smokers. If you watch the video on Amazon, you'll see tha...

Nordic Ware Stovetop Indoor/Outdoor Smoker - Gris Gris
I was watching Steven Raichlin's show last night when he used the Nordic Ware stovetop smoker to smoke some pecans. http://barbecuebible.com/product/nordic-ware-365-indooroutdoor-kettle-smoker/ There really wasn't much smoke that came out once he was done with the smoking. I have a Came...

re: Shrimp stock - Gris Gris
Don't boil it. Simmer to reduce. Looks good! Well, except for the dirty pot. Wipe all that off so it doesn't get into your stock. Always rinse the pot if you're using the same one after straining. ...

re: Shrimp stock - Gris Gris
I've got some fresh ones coming on Friday from a shrimper, but not that many. I'm hoping the guy bringing them is selling to some folks who want them de-headed so I collect the heads. Had some last week, but I bbq'ed them so the heads were on them. Now, I want possession of your outdoor setup!...

re: Shrimp stock - Gris Gris
I wouldn't even use peppercorns. Keep control of the heat for the dish you cook. I don't use black pepper in gumbo, for example. That's why I don't use peppercorns. You can also defrost and simmer it with whatever you want before using it in a dish, if you want to do that. ...
