After reading Landarc's thread http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=149094 about gumbo, I decided to make some of my own. I basically followed his technique, but rather than use bacon as a contributor of fat, I used some locally made smoked sausage to help with the rendered chicken fat. I also used frozen okra, mainly because I haven't found a reason not too. I also used some chicken breasts to help add some additional chicken to the gumbo.
It turned out very tasty. Thanks for the inspiration Landarc!!
Nice on the sausage, I have not found a locally made smoked sausage I like enough to use. I have found bacon, hence the bacon.

I knew I forgot the tofu! The sausage I used is made by Roger Woods foods here in Savannah. I know they distribute regionally, but I'm not sure about nationally. It's definitely good.

Wow! Nice. When I've got fresh okra I use it. If not, I use a bag of frozen. Its just as good. Good job!

Good looking bowl of gumbo there. I like the cracked black pepper on the rice, it's a nice garnish that adds some flavor, too. I may have to take the last bit of my last batch out of the freezer and let it thaw for tomorrow after reading this post.
