      Followed the recipe exactly and it is a keeper. We had a fun time doing it and the results were good, and definately 'dirty. Corn and potatoes had a nice 'cajun' flavor to them. I used red potatoes and cut them based on size. Golf ball sized went in whole, lemon sized got halved, and baseball sized got quartered. Thanks!
