Wanted to seer some duck breast but couldn't find just the breast so I bought a duck. Our course I will use all but the quack, quack.

Gumbo first - Have to have a good roux and secondarily a good stock.

Veggies for the stock

Cut up the duck, removed the breast, and dusted the parts with Tsunami spin. Browned all the pieces that were going into the stock.

Browned the legs, thighs, and wings for use in the gumbo later. Started direct then smoked indirect with pecan.

Started the roux with CI pot on the lump

Starting to brown

Getting happy - pulled the CI pot off a couple times to avoid burning the roux. Took about 10 minutes. Time to add the seasoning.

Seasoning - two bunches of green onions, two large onions, about 1-1/2 cups of celery and 1/4 cup of garlic.

Simmered about four hours - stirring occasionally and adding a little stock as the gumbo reduces.

Tried a little taste and it is mightyfine - not for tonight though. Gumbo is always better the next day. :)

  • Can you get andouille in south TX?
  • :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Yeah, but it's not real andoille

    I get mine from Bourgeois Meat Market in Thibodaux - the best. It's smoked and just to take a whiff of it is a treat.

    Used to pick up my traveling companion in the late 60s while attending Nicholls. I remember several times my future MIL coming to the back door on a Friday morning in her robe and had me a $5 bill for some andoille. I knew we were having chicken, oyster and andoille gumbo on Sunday. :)

    Bourgeois also has over the top jerky, sausages, and head cheese. If you are in the neighborhood, you should stop by.

    Keep plenty andoille in my freezer for gumbos. :lol:
  • Frank, I'm a bayou Lafourche girl...do I ever know Bourgeois!
  • :) :)

    Up da bayou or down da bayou? :laugh:

    Either way is mightyfine

    G.R.I.T.S. = Girls Raised In The South :) :)

    My bride and traveling companion is a Duplantis from Houma - Of course now she is a Smith. Duplantis to Smith - boring. ;)
  • Way down da bayou. Or, as the texting-savvy abbreviate it, DTB.
