What, exactly is Jambalaya? It's a Creole dish native to the Southeastern United States, Louisiana in particular, made of ham, shrimp, crayfish and/or sausage cooked with rice, tomatoes, green peppers, onions and seasonings. In our version we leave out the crayfish (you can add them if you wish), and substitute KEN DAVIS BAR-B-Q-SAUCE for many of the spices.

1 pound raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
1 pound spicy smoked sausage, such as Andouille or Kielbasa
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 large onion, chopped
1 large green pepper, seeded and chopped
1 large red pepper, seeded and chopped
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 cup uncooked long-grain rice
1 cup smoked ham, coarsely chopped
1 can (15 ounces) chicken broth

Measure 2 tablespoons of the KEN DAVIS BAR-B-Q-SAUCE; set aside. Place the shrimp in a 1-gallon sealable plastic bag; pour the remaining barbecue sauce over the shrimp. Seal and refrigerate about 30 minutes.

Brown the sausages in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Remove the sausages, and melt the butter in the same pan. Cook and stir the onions and peppers in the butter until the onions are translucent and tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, the reserved 2 tablespoons KEN DAVIS BAR-B-Q-SAUCE, the vinegar and cayenne. Cover and simmer 15 minutes.

Slice the sausages, and add them to the pot along with the rice and ham. Stir in the chicken broth. Heat to boiling; reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 20 minutes. Stir in the shrimp, including the marinade, and cook, stirring, until the shrimp is pink, 3 to 5 minutes longer.
