*Cook chicken using the Alfresco grill (time will vary depending on size of chicken- we seasoned our chickens liberally, filled the smoker box with apple wood chips, turned on rotisserie burner and cooked for 2-3 hours) While chicken cooks, grill sausage until heated through & has grill marks. Take chicken off, let rest until cool, and cut/shred into bite sized pieces. Do the same with sausage, and set aside.
Heat oil in a large pot. Add in flour slowly and whisk constantly for about 5-8 or until light golden.
Add onion, bell peppers, and garlic to pot. Stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Season with salt, pepper, and creole seasoning.
