      this sounds delicious, the great thing about gumbo is you can toss in other meats like chicken or pork and the cuts of meat dont need to be premium, i would use leg quarters that have been boiled, deboned and diced, or even left over ham. Its one of those great melting pot types of dishes. If your lucky enough to have gator around definitely toss a bit of that in the pot.

      Kenosnugs, as mechelle said, gumbo is good for just about any meat available. I would suggest using similar portions of whatever meat that you use. Mix it up, have some fun making it to suit your family’s preferences, then let us know how your family liked it!
