Gonna Build A SmokehouseSubmitted by BMWJIM on Mon, 12/31/2012 - 16:31
Okay, I know the english is not proper but this is how I arrived at this destination.
Last month, November I happened to be so lucky to win a gumbo cookoff! (Lafayette and all points south) Well Susan says I was lucky. She was convinced I didn't have a chance. Although, I told my wonderful bride and everyone that would listen that I don't compete without winning. LoL! I took first place amongst many great cooks from cajun country. Although my name doesn't sound like Thibodeaux, Ardoin, Thibeau, Boudreaux, I come from a family that started their children cooking from age six. (LOL did the same to mine and now all his friends from ULL just wait for him to cook).
I am quite honored that everyone (350 people) liked my Shrimp and Andouillie gumbo but, now I am going to build a smokehouse to cure my own Boudin and Andouillie sausage. Might even smoke a little bread(un-usual but not if stuffed as I have in mind).
I have been online looking for a good permenant design for a smokehouse and now I want my family's(DP) ideas on the perfect smokehouse for as little money as possible. I am more interested in design than anything.
Heck if I pick your design I just may cook you a special meal.
