2019 Alabama v LSU Tailgate

It’s that time of the year – Gumbo time!  That can only mean one thing, Bama VS LSU.  As most of you know, I love this game.  I love this food.  I love this tailgate.

I’ve got the tasso curing now and it will go on the smoker later this week.  I’ll start the roux in the evenings to come as well as some of the stocks.  To say this particular tailgate is a labor of love is an understatement!

I expect a pretty big crowed for this tailgate.  I love the 2:30 game times, but it does make for a compressed morning timeline.  I’ll have appetizers coming off all morning and the mains off around 12:30.

As always we have plenty of brews from Cahaba Brewing (thanks again for the partnership!)

Here’s the menu

  • Starters
    • Various New Orleans Inspired Cocktails
    • Fresh Cracklings
    • Pepper Jack Stuffed Boudin Balls
    • Cajun Stuffed Chicken Thighs
  • Mains
    • Gumbo Ya-Ya (seafood, chicken and duck)
    • Jambalaya
    • Etouffee

After the game I’ll fry some shrimp and crawfish for po-boys.

Do me a HUGE favor and let me know if you’re coming so that I can get the correct amount of food.  I want to have plenty, but don’t want to have too much left over.

See you on Sat!

Roll Tide,
