Leftover Turkey and Sausage Gumbo


Recommended Posts

Smoked 15lb turkey, brined, injected, added a small piece of cherry chunk for smoke @ 300-325 degrees, for just over two hours. Pulled when the breast hit 165 degrees.

Turned out really good! Decided to make gumbo with the left overs. 


Made the stock from the bones.



Everything prepped and ready to go.



Made roux with bacon grease and flower. 



All done, now to leave it on a slow simmer for the day.



After sitting on a low simmer for the majority of the day. 



Added some zaterains creole seasoning, oregano, salt, pepper, and thyme. I've never had authentic gumbo before, and I dont think this is the traditional way of making gumbo? But this is the third time I've made it and it seems to be a hit at home and in my office. Plus, it was a great way to use some of the left over turkey.
