    I know this has little to do with smoking but I am in need of a recipe for poutine gravy.

    The real Canadian stuff, not Heinz jar gravy... :emoji_wink:

    Thanks for your help...

    Dude, hit up David aka Disco.
    @disco hey David,
    how about a Poutine recipe?

    I always just used a gravy, any gravy.
    And don't forget the cheese curds.

    That or Mayo, oh man, garlic Mayo on fries.

    Or Remoulade, had that on fries in New Orleans.

    For gravy, I prefer making a roux with bacon grease.. using Krusteaz pancake mix and whole milk... A chicken gravy so to speak...

    But really, poutine is gravy.
    No matter the flavor, whatever you like.
    And cheese curds... Mmmm cheese.

    Don't recall what show, but I saw a FN show on poutine and the CAN chefs made a big deal to about using duck fat and stock for "true" poutine. They fried the fries in duck fat as well.

    With it's French origins I can believe that.
    But that is pretty upscale for most folks.
    I'll settle for whatever critter I've cooked most recently.
    Mmmm, gravy!

    You have to scroll to bottom and clik on "Brown Gravy Sauce for Poutine and Hot Chicken".

    I checked out the recipe and it is a basic (light) brown gravy.
    Personally, I don't like corn starch in my Euro-American gravy.

    Thanks... Checked it out again and found it... A pretty basic gravy. I will be sure to give it a try. I agree that I don't like cornstarch as much in gravy as a good roux.

    My first instruction to any new cook. Always start with a roux. :emoji_sunglasses:

    I REALLY want to like poutine but never had one that I liked yet. To be honest, I think the cheese curds are the key and might need to be fresh made. Did some digging and this gravy looks good to me: https://thelocalpalate.com/recipes/duck-fat-gravy-sauce/

    Holy crap just had a wild thought. Smoke a duck and collect the fat to make gravy and serve poutine with the smoked duck. :emoji_astonished:

    Italian gravy AKA marinara sauce, is pretty good on fries, too.

    Duck fat isn't horribly expensive.
    You can buy it jarred on Amazon for less than a dollar an ounce.
    Might be expensive to fill a deep fryer, but a few inches in a small skillet isn't too hard on the wallet.

    Bacon fat (grease) and chicken fat (schmaltz) taste great and it's a lot cheaper for this old fart on a fixed income... I keep watching TV chefs rave about duck fat.. I'm afraid if I tried it, I'd love it and have to go to W-M and become a greeter to support my newly acquired food habit... Schmaltz makes an awesome roux...
    I would NOT make a good greeter...

    You're in luck!
    Walmart no longer uses Greeters.
    At least not here in the SE.
