Yeah I was worried about that as well since I've observed that the burner seems to turn off and on, rather than actually varying the output. I guess you could say that it's digital Had gas at my last house and I would agree, it's better for cooking. This house is all electric, except for a gas fitting for my grill on the back patio and the fireplace.

Far as I can tell, the secret to the roux (and I'm by no means an expert) is constant stirring. I used a whisk, and I whisked it so much that it actually got a bit foamy. But, it didn't burn!

Gumbo should be no problem for a man dedicated enough to his craft to start the smoker at 2am. No time like the present! I recommend copious amounts of wine for the cook.
