I just don't know what people see in okra. To me it is slimy and nasty. I do a dark roux and never use okra.

I can't imagine gumbo without okra. I love it in that or fried.  :P

Raw, very fresh okra is delicious and pickled okra beats pickled cucumbers any day.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Throw on a little smoked paprika (or regular). You won't regret it.

Just scored a whole sirlion tip for $2.98/lb. 8)

 I will be slicing off several thick steaks, cooking 2 for supper, then vaccum sealing/freezing the rest.

That's cheaper than hamburger around here.

ahhhh...pickled okra.  Yes, absolutely.
Food of the Gods.

I never use okra in Gumbo (I prefer roux based), but I do love okra sauteed in butter with chicken and a bit of onion, with some brown rice on the side.

It's also very good Indian style, made with masala.

Funny thing is, I never even tasted okra until I was 45 years old.  Now I love the stuff.

Smoked chicken BBQ on the grill.

Started with a 24 hour beer brine then a dry rub.



Smoker box filled with oktoberfest soaked cherry wood:



Took about five hours.





Served it up with grilled veggies and a twice baked potato:
