Holy Shomoly....what an awesome recipe!!! I gobbled down 2 bowl fulls. This was my first time making jambalaya from scratch. All the chopping was a little time consuming, but well worth it all. Even my son said this recipe was a definate keeper. It was a little spicy for his taste, but I thought it was perfect, just enough to give it a kick, but not so much you are rushing around to find a drink. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I won't go back to the boxed kind again.

J--this is delicious! Very easy, the work is in the prep. Get that done first,and then get ready to go. I left out the celery, only because you said you did, and I wan't in a celery mood, lol. I wasn't entirely sure about the bbq sauce, but you know...it's perfect in this! It adds a subtle smoky flavor that goes well with the other ingredients. We absolutely loved it J, and will be making it again. Thanks! (OK tt, now you don't have to be afraid to try it :P)

This was a big hit at our house! We didn't add the bacon, chicken or shrimp. Only had chipotle bbq sauce and it still turned out great!

Good but not great. We spiced it up and everyone enjoyed. Will make again and use this as a base.

I followed the recipe to the T and the rice did not cook. We had hard rice in our meal that night. The flavor was great, but the hard rice ruined it. Thanks anyways!

I've never had proper jambalaya but this recipe inspired me to make my own kind of version using some british ingredients (incl. white pudding) and some veggies that we like. I'm sure it tasted nothing on earth like this jambalaya does but I wanted to say thank you anyway for the inspiration!

This is the best! It was so very good. It makes a huge batch, but is just as good reheated. I didn't have garlic bbq sauce so i used what i had on hand (Famous Dave's Sweet & Zesty) and it had just the right kick. I also used Turkey Smoked Sausage to reduce the fat (every little bit helps, right)! Otherwise, i followed the recipe as is. I will definetely be making this many times to come. I got rave reviews! Thank you for this recipe! Delicious!!!

This recipe was awesome:) I didn't change anything except for the celery. My hubby and I aren't celery fans. It was awesome!! The best jambalaya I've ever had!

This recipe tasted very good and was pretty easy to put together. I didn't use the celery (because my husband HATES it), but otherwise followed the recipe as written. My only comment is that I personally like a little more rice in my jambalaya than I got with this. Next time I make this, I'll either add more rice or just make extra to mix in.
