Whole family was born and raised here in south Mississippi. You'd be surprised how far this way east the Creole/Cajun culture has an influence. A lot of homemade gumbo over here could hold their own in Louisiana. Restaurant gumbo not so much. Most restaurant gumbo are more like shrimp stews than gumbo.

Yeah I know! And it is heavy stainless at that. My dad is a sheet metal worker by trade and made it many years ago. Been using it on that glass top stove for a few years with no problems yet though. Only used on the stovetop for gumbo once or twice a year when it is a big batch if making gumbo for a crowd. Otherwise for boiling crawfish, shrimp, or deer skulls, it gets put on a gas burner outside.
