"Oh Me Oh My Oh" It's Jambalaya Time Again

Apologies to the Dutch Oven thread from a couple of days ago where I shot my fingers off saying I was Jambalayin' in the Dutch this weekend.  Well that was that plan but the Gaber bought way too much meat and it ended up being two Crueset trays full.  Hot and regular pork sausages, chicken, and shrimp ready to go right here.  A wee out of focus but so was I.


Egg set direct at 350 - Finished shot of everything - chicken pulled at 150 degrees.  Sausages pulled after 2 minutes rolling around.  Shrimp pulled after about a minute total.  


All chopped up in bigger than bite size pieces along with long grain brown rice - and more out of focus as the day progressed.  Damn you Elijah Craig.


All mixed together ready to bake in the Egg at 350 for 35 minutes with shrimp on standby to be tossed on top for the last 5. 


Good to go in the Egg - raised grid using fire bricks


A bit too much of the inspiration today as I forgot to switch to indirect with platesetter so bottom tray was overcooking.  Pulled everything, platesetter in, transferred nearly burnt bottom tray to glass tray - back in Egg for the 1/2 hour - shrimp tossed on top - "Oh Me Oh My Oh, Had Big Fun..."  Setting for a spell trying to find a cool one - then tucking in!  Luke the Drifter playing in the background all day.... Thanks Y'all!

    Awesome! Looks great. Spicy things like jambalaya taste a lot better after the all the spices and flavors get friendly, so I bet the leftovers are gonna be even tastier.

    Wow!!! That's an awesome looking cook no matter how split it up.
  • @Aviator we climbed to the top tonight and started chewing downwards. Managed two servings each, then started bagging. @Hapster thanks man. Here's the remainder two servings per bag heading for the icebox.
