    thanks,
    I was glad I could get my hands on the turkey legs, and beef ribs last minute.

    I am looking forward to a bowl of that gumbo for dinner for sure.

    yeah it was stuffed. I always use one rack to hold a drip pan above the water pan, custs down on capacity, but saves on clean-up. [​IMG]

    As a louisiana born an bred cajun. I was excited to see someone doing a gumbo. That was untill ya put corn in it. LMAO, I bet it turned out good . next time leave out the corn and put some okra in it.
    I have smoked my shrimp an sausage before making a gumbo and have to say it adds a great flavor.

    I typically dont put corn in but I have so much extra right now(my buddy who owns a farm just gave me 3 dozen ears) I am just trying to think of ways to use it.

    the corn added a nice texture difference actually. I couldnt find any fresh okra or I would have put some in, I love okra.

    the smoking the meats and then simmering the smoked chicken and turkey in the broth for an hour really gave it a nice taste.
