If you haven't had gumbo made in a cast iron pot, then you just haven't lived yet.  There is a reason grandma insisted on using that pot!  When you make a roux for your soups and gumbos in a cast iron pot, the cooking is more consistent.  The cast iron pot acts as a heat conductor.  This makes the flour and oil cook more evenly.  This is also the same for when you brown your onions, bell peppers and celery (the holy trinity).
