re: Completely messed up a gumbo by having the roux break. Need help - tewino
IMO it has nothing to do with temps of the stock or roux. It has to do with the roux being too dark (i.e. burned). It's happened to me several times but only when I make a really dark roux. I didn't think it was burned as I stirred constantly and there were no black spots and it smelled nice. It wa...

re: Rendezvous BBQ in Memphis - tewino
You have to go to Rendezvous once just to say you've been because it's an institution (very overrated), same as Dreamland in AL. I've been several times but never even remotely impressed. I've also been to ALL the other Memphis mecca's and NONE of them is worth a detour other than Gus' chicken whi...

re: Roux Separating from Stock - tewino
I've never had separation unless it is a very dark roux, and I never thought is was burned. I'm talking as dark as dark chocolate or even a little darker than that. Not black. When I try to mix with stock it is like old motor oil. It pisses me off when that happens. If I stop at milk chocolate ...

re: Roux Separating from Stock - tewino
[quote]Do you use homemade stock? I almost always use store bought. I wonder if a larger fat content of home-made stock comes into effect. [/quote] I use homemade stock but I can't see how that would matter. My theory is that your roux is burned despite you stirring and not seeing any black spec...

re: Roux Separating from Stock - tewino
I have a different theory. I've had the same problem several times and I don't think it matters about the temp of the roux or stock. Was your roux really dark? I love a really dark roux and that's when I have problems with separation. I never had a problem with a lighter brown roux. I thi...
