Well the red beans turned out great! My wife said they were the best batch yet. The funny thing is, I didn't even use any pork products, blasphemy! Just a smoked turkey drumstick. Split the bone in half to let the marrow out of the corral. The beans came out nice and creamy, just like using a ham bone. Anyway since I'm in a RB
&R mood I thought I would give a whole bunch of links to other recipes for you to check out, because that's what I always do. I've never made it the same way twice, it's a work in progress. I love reading new techniques. So here are some links:

~This page from La Belle Cuisine
(which I love) has three versions. One is from a friend of the author, one from Emeril Lagasse, and one from Marcelle Bienvenu. Marcelle Bienvenu is a great food writer from Lafayette, Louisiana. I will do a post on her in the future. I love reading her books and articles.
