re: What is the board's opinion of Isaac Toups? - Stadium Rat
[quote]Why the hate for tomatoes in Jamb? [/quote][quote]He doesn't put tomatoes in jambalaya, the red in the pictures if you google is bellpepper. Plus he's adamant about not mixing seafood and meat in gumbo.[/quote]That went right over your head, didn't it?...

re: What are your favorite brands of San Marzano tomatoes? - Stadium Rat
America's Test Kitchen likes SMT brand. The can is mostly white and different trim colors designate whether the contents are whole, diced, etc. [img]http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn%3AANd9GcQ6qVysYEkos9H_ecFGyhFWVQCpYyoMu8xFJNDW5yinkTjDzjyOAP8FtvGYGzhWzu7uiJ2f4j4&usqp=CAc[/img] They are grow...

re: What's Your Favorite Sparkling Water? - Stadium Rat
Soda stream is a laughable rip off. How much do their refills cost again? If you're gonna be serious about sparkling water, get yourself a self made home carbonation rig. Mine has a 20 lb CO2 bottle and cost about $11 to fill. That was about 4 years ago and it's still got a good bit of gas in it....

What's Your Favorite Sparkling Water? - Stadium Rat
I used to drink Gerolsteiner, which I loved, but I bought it at Big Lots for cheap. Now I find it kind of pricey. Besides, I tend to make my own now. I have a home carbonizing setup. NOLA water tastes pretty damn good despite what might be in it. I just add a tiny pinch of baking soda to smoo...

re: Cost to make Jambalaya? - Stadium Rat
Download the Jambalaya Calculator version 7.3. Put in 100 servings of whatever serving size you'll be using. It will calculate the amount of each ingredient you need. You'll have to figure the food cost from there. [link=(https://www.dropbox.com/s/9000pqbmokn4xzk/Jambalaya-Calculator-v7..3.xlsx?d...

re: What's the worst kitchen appliance you've ever bought? - Stadium Rat
I had a buddy years ago that burned up one and he was using his new one to make us some daiquiris. He put all the ingredients in, including ice, before turning it on. It jammed, of course. I told him you have to drop the ice cubes in while it was running or he'd burn up the motor. He looked at me...

re: Jar roux help - Stadium Rat
A jar is 2 cups of roux, if you're using the small jar. 2 gallons of gumbo would be 32 cups. So, if you use the whole jar, your roux to stock ratio could be as much as 16 to 1. It could be thicker than that because we're not counting the volume of the meat in the gumbo. That is a medium amou...
