Smoked Duck and Sausage Gumbo

Made some gumbo the other day with smoked duck and a combination of venison and garlic pork sausage. Smoking the duck and sausage as well as making the stock was done the day prior to making the gumbo. I have decided that a larger stockpot is needed in my kitchen after having to split my gumbo into two pots. I also didn't have enough duck stock to thin out the roux, so had to add some chicken stock from the pantry. Turned out pretty good, enjoy! 

Salt and pepper rubbed duck in smoke!!

    Looks amazing! Did you crush the bones after boiling to make the stock.

    Oh wow!! Terrific cook! 

    Did you have a drip pan under the duck to collect the fat? Also, what is trinity? Saw it as an ingredient on a menu in NOLA and din't know what it meant. Onions, celery and something?

  • @Dfishel - I did not crush the bones after making the stock. I do like to break the large bones prior to placing in water. I want to make a 24-48 hour bone stock one of these days, just have not done so yet.

  • @Caliking - No drip pan, need to buy one that easily fits in BGE. Missing the bell peppers for the trinity.
