Awww man you are killing me! I had surgery yesterday (16 teeth pulled!) and will be on a liquid diet for the next week. This time I’m drooling from more than Novocaine lol
Say hey to the folks at Killer Seafood. I sure did enjoy our visit last year in July.
Well it’s the day before I leave for the Gumbo contest, and the weather here SUX!!!
Freezing rain, sleet and snow [V], thank goodness the farther we go south the warmer it is.
I will post pictures from the precook and contest as they come.
I pulled this out of the smoker this morning.
12 lbs, smoked 9 hours 15 minutes, using apple wood, rubbed with a cajun seasoning
Tender and delicious!
All my meat preparations have been made, Smoked Turkey (5 lbs), Andouille (6 lbs), freshly rendered lard to make my roux with, and 4 gallons of smoked turkkey stock.
I will buy the vegetables when I get down there (woohoo a trip to Piggly Wiggly [:D])
So Adj, BhamBabe, Bruce yall coming down??
Mardi Gras Hat. Great color.

I have always said MB and that area is AWESOME!
Awesome shots of St Joe St Park, it is so beautiful out there. In Feb there probably are several spots in the park to pick from.
I have a friend that stays a weekend in the cabins, right there facing the bay. The cabins are quaint and are perfect for a stay.
My dad and I take his boat and fish off the bay side of the peninsula, great spot for sharks that is only about 100 feet from the beach. [V]
Yes, watch out for Alligator and Bear. I have seen both while down there. Gator’s right there in MB, and the bear up the road heading towards Wewa, near the Overstreet Area.
If you can find the time to come down that weekend, It will be a great weekend.
Saturday Night is St Andrew’s Mardi Gras Parade too. (not quite as exciting as NOLA, but not too bad either)
Did anyone mention that Mexico Beach is awesome! And if you like to camp, there is no better camping spot in the entire world than St. Joe’s Peninsula State Park. Shhhhhhh, don’t tell anyone.
Top secret pictures are here -> http://www.dotphoto.com/Go.asp?l=callmebruce&P=&AID=1954157&GID=830058&T=1
I gotta find a way to take a three day vacation that weekend and head on down. If St. Joe’s is full, there is another state park nearby.
Here we see my wonderful son modeling the hat for us.
Needless to say he was not impressed that I made him model it.
Oneiron it is the same weekend you all will be gorging yourselves on BBQ and sausages (2-17-07)
So who won?
Looks like a Jester’s Hat……[:o)]
Now THAT will make a fashion statement! Thanks for the tip on the gumbo gator apron. I’m on my way over to order one…
OOOOh, and the oven mitts!
Here is my chef’s hat for the contest this year.
the colors did not come out well on the photo though, it is purple green and gold
Stripes on the band, and squares on the poof of the hat.
I will be arriving in Mexico Beach, around 7pm on the 13th or 14th.
My week is fairly open, except Friday/Saturday (gotta cook the gumbo)
ADJ, if you can’t make it down maybe lunch/dinner somewhere in LA (Lower Alabama)
BHAMBABE, you comin over???
I have a set of 4.
Last year we all had Jimmy Buffett’s "I will play for Gumbo" aprons
This year I have I think we will use the gumbo gator apron again, but i am having special Mardi Gras colored chefs hats made. I got one the other day and my son did not take it off the whole day.
Ahhh, if Tornados could talk……Adj, I’m sure there are a few stories from the early 70’s you could tell……inquiring minds want to know! [8D]
"I’m sure there are a few stories from the early 70’s you could tell."
YEP. You are RIGHT about THAT!!!!!!!!! [}:)] ( [:p] )
Paul. You OBVIOUSLY never got the oysters I emailed to you a year or so ago from Tallahassee? Or the time you were headed to Tallahassee BUT FORGOT to call me when you went through THOMASVILLE?
What’s the deal? [8D]
