No, not cooking. I have a few friends who do every year. I try to go every year just to eat the strange gumbos people cook.

We went to the gumbo fest over in bridge city la last year. We have family there. We only got to taste the winning gumbo. It was very good. I wish we could have tasted some of the other entries. The wife and i agreed that would be the last weekend jaunt in October for a while tho. 2 Kids birthdays and deer lease prep is all we can handle in one month.

I'm familiar with it! LOL You may have had mine. The two trophies were for Turduckin gumbo and a DUCK DUCK GOOSE gumbo. My favorite time is at 6:00AM when the shotgun goes off.....the aroma of 100 competitors making a roux is heavenly!

Its getting to be that time again to get some energy behind it. I'm a culprit of it dying last year. Work in the oilfield and family took a toll on my efforts!

I would like to do a cook off. but i am in favor of doing it like the big jambalaya cook offs. everyone gets the same meat / seafood to start with. same veggies for everyone. the taste will be the deciding factor

My company is hosting a gumbo cook off in Nov. If anyone is interested I'll post the flyer if that is ok with Casey and mods.

I just think that sourcing is a very important part of the finished product. If you have better produce, or fresher shrimp, your bowl will taste better.

Would every gumbo need to be the same type though to have a fair comparison? I think it would be hard to judge a seafood next to a chicken/sausage or a shrimp and okra

But then how can you have a true champ if half the people cook one and half the other?

Cook what you want. I didn't see it as *** "true champ" kinda thing. Just an excuse to drink a Lil, eat some good grub, and have one more thing to trash talk about. I'm not interested in fairness or an even playing field. Cheating, bribing, and sabotage would be welcomed in my version of this throw down

True, but a good sausage and chicken should be able to hold it's own! Any okra in gumbo is a automatically disqualified ! !!!! Just my too cents, but I can f.... up a frozen pizza
