FANTASTIC!!! My DH was craving a gumbo he used to have in Alabama. He said that this recipe looked about what he remembered, so we made it tonight. It was sooo good. We did use some bacon grease in with the oil for the roux, and hungarian paprika. This is just wonderful, spicy, but not too spicy. Thanks!

I have never had "real" gumbo, but I thought this was awesome. They key is being patient with the roux. I would say next time though I would cut down on the stock. It seemed a little runny for me. However, I subbed a dark beer for part of the stock b/c I ran out of it, so that could be why mine turned out a little runny. Regardless, a keeper recipe! Thanks!!
