Before I go traipsing around the region - anyone know where I can find it? Wegman's? Making a smoked duck and andouille gumbo - it is optional, how would it affect the taste to leave it out? My first gumbo, so not sure. Txs.

I got a tin from Dean and Deluca. Maybe Penzey's?

I think your gumbo would be better without it, but that may be because I grew up not using it. You're going to have plenty of flavor without it. I don't usually see filé with a duck gumbo. If you do use it, just sprinkle a little bit in your bowl at the table. If you mix it in the pot and cook it, the gumbo will be too thick, in my opinion. Good luck with your gumbo!
