Basically. It's mostly about no tomatoes. Competition jambalaya in Gonzales is an entirely other animal. It is chicken only, and must be cooked over an open wood fire.

I like chicken, pork, and smoked sausage in my jambalaya. Hank Hill would shed tears on my back patio. I'm very fond of propane and propane accessories.

I was gonna do the Gonzales recipe that’s on here with pork..guess I could add chicken if that wouldn’t mess up the ratio and put too much meat in

re: Jambalaya Help
I stick with either or. Pork or chicken. Always andouille, sometimes tasso added too.

Tri-ply might work, but generally stainless steel doesn't distribute heat well. I wouldn't try stainless unless your talking about a stove-top size jambalaya. I regularly cook a 6 quart jambalaya in a stainless steel pot on my stove.

re: Jambalaya Help
I was just in central Georgia visiting family and I ran into some sausage that was hickory smoked. It was really good and it would have worked great in a jambalaya. Just go to a local supermarket and look for some. I found this in a small town piggly wiggly. Those kinds of places will always have more specialty meats and if they don’t have it, the meat market guys will know what you are talking about. The 14 year old meat stocker at Walmart won’t know and won’t care about what you are looking for.

Good luck finding good sausage in SC. I tried years ago and it was a huge fail bc of the lack of good sausage to be found.

And I searched several stores in the Columbia area, no luck.

re: Jambalaya Help
If it comes down to it, you can use smoked ham instead of sausage. The only part that is really important is the fatty pork to brown off at the beginning. That is where you develop most of your color and quite a bit of your flavor. The rest is personal preference.

Yelp Old TimeyMeat Market in Lexington looks like it may do it for you

Ok so I’m gonna do the Gonzales style recipe that’s on the recipe post..should I use the calculator for that recipe? He goes into pretty good detail but not a complete recipe

re: Jambalaya Help
Yrs. use the calculator to adjust the recipe for 80% of the size of your pot.

What is the soup base mentioned in the app when using water, better than bouillon?

Find a local BBQ joint and ask them to sell you some out the fridge

If anyone could answer this, it would be greatly appreciated. I could buy stock (don't have any homemade on hand) but I only have beef better than bouillon on hand. I'm just gonna buy the chicken BtB anyway, but is this what is meant by soup base?

Thanks!
