I picked up the Lodge Cookbook and wanted to try out the Savannah Red Rice outdoors. Also wanted to try my kettle and tripod in the yard. Worked out just fine.

I have three beagles. Ruby is in charge of guarding the rice! Ruby the red nosed, red-eared, red and white beagle has GOT to be in charge of red rice!


Cooking away:


Looking Good!



What I learned: I should have cooked tomatoes, onions, celery, andouille sausage separately from the rice, chicken stock and cider vinegar - then mixed them together and added the shrimp. Rice was cooked too much. Using a liberal hand with freshly ground black pepper, red pepper flakes, sea salt and cajun seasoning can be good!

Will figure out a simple way to do two kettles at a time next. But overall, it was good, had a nice heat to it, and went quickly! (thinking of doing a very simple, removable firepit - removable being key, in case the homeowners covenants disagree!).

I had to go back and look at the recipe directions in the book... Looks like you would need some side skillets in the fire too. I thought maybe the recipe was similar to a pilau (perlow). I'm not sure what kind of difference it would make in the end result but I would use parboiled rice instead of the long grain, as long grain seems fragile and to over cook easily (IMHO).

How was the flavor?

The flavor was awesome!

My plan is to build a small firepit so I can cook things separately, then combine them. Or just pick up another metal pan from Napa and use one for the Tripod and the other for a DO. That would be simple, inexpensive, easy to set up and easy to remove. I can do skillets on my grill, so don't need to get too fancy.

Now to look up pilau!

I just picked up some shrimp from Florida over the weekend - I was going to save them for a low country boil but just might make the red rice instead.

I have a great pilau recipe - I'll post in the recipe section for you.

Yes! Gulf shrimp! My youngest son and I used to love going to Cape San Blas to go camping, and travel to Appalachicola to check out the shrimp boats. I think I'm going to have to put Gulf Shrimp on the list for the weekend, even if we can't make it down to the coast.
