Gra Lil Gator



Alligator has been playing a starring role in New Orleans cuisine for decades, and that tradition continues at Pappadeaux. This cold-blooded Louisiana native can weigh up to 790 lbs and 14 feet long. The largest alligator on record measured an impressive 19.2 feet! Our gators are farm-raised, which makes the meat extra tender. Alligator meat is extremely versatile, gracing tables in the form of sausage, dropped into a gumbo or jambalaya, or fried. Fried is just how you'll find it at Pappadeaux, served with Creole dipping sauce.


At one time there were 70 of these fiberglass alligators around town, all customized by different artists, with evocative names such as "Croc-o-Tile" and "Pearly Gate-R." One, "Muckraker," resembled President Teddy Roosevelt. Some were purchased by private collectors. Some succumbed to Louisiana weather. Only a few are left, of which this may be the most memorable example.


Over the weekend, the Slovak American Club in Tarentum brought a full-grown alligator to its headquarters on West Seventh Avenue for its Saturday night Mardi Gras celebration. The club had never prepared a gator before. So why here? Why now?


The gator was free for the Slovak American Club members to consume. About 100 of them stopped in and seemed to enjoy it, including Robert McBurney, 49, of Tarentum, who had never eaten alligator before.


Lil Al, an enormous wooden alligator, lay in pieces Wednesday night (Aug. 19) in a Marigny warehouse. Built by high-tech graphic designer Brennan Steele and a band of artistic volunteers, the disassembled dragon was bound for Burning Man, an annual art festival in Nevada where giant sculptures like Lil Al are ceremoniously set ablaze.


Lil Al would be 60 feet long if he was all stretched out, but Steele designed him to coil into a 24-foot hexagon. The giant alligator was built from 45 sheets of thick plywood. His splintery green skin is perforated with an intricate grid of scales, cut by computer router. Notice the clever painting that makes the surface of the blocky beast seem to curve. Lil Al's 400-pound head, with its gaping mouth, will rise two stories over the desert floor.


The warehouse, which houses the notoriously risque floats of the Krewe du Vieux, was a chaos of creativity. Anyone photographing the great alligator had to be careful not to capture some of the untoward papier-mache scenes in the background.


Sparks flew and the smell of a metal grinder filled the air, as a goggled gator builder nipped off protruding nails. Artist Rachel Andersen stood within Lil Al's gaping jaws, like one of those daring African birds that ventures inside crocodiles' mouths in search for scraps, as she dabbed ivory-colored paint on the jagged teeth. Meanwhile, three men hefted one of Lil Al's refrigerator-sized legs into place beside his enormous translucent torso.


Steele estimates the cost of materials to produce Lil Al was roughly $3,000, which is covered by the Burning Man festival. He and Arvidson have worked on three previous Burning Man projects. In fact they've set similar, smaller alligators ablaze in the past, both in Nevada and at the T-Bois Blues Festival in Larose.


One day an old Cajun man told his grandchildren this story. "Come over here," he said, "Set yo'sef down and lemme tell ya da story of da Cajun Kringle. "It all happen a long time ago. D'ere was a little baker called his 'sef Alfonse. Dis man was very generous. Every mornin' he would wake up at 4:00 a.m. an den light his oven and begin da process of makin' his Kringles. When he would finish baking dem Kringles, he would load dem into his pirogue for the trip down da bayou to begin deliberin' dem to his family and friends. "One mornin' on the bayou, a big gator jumped on his boat and said 'Gimme all your Kringles.' Alphonse grabbed his push pole and beat dat gator on his head and told him da Kringles was not for him. Dat night da baker started cookin' his Kringles early cause he had a large order to deliver. As he look out da corner of his eye, he saw dat gator cryin' at da window. Being a very compassionate ole man, he made a promise wit dat gator. He said if da gator would pull Alfonse and his pirouge down da bayou to make his Kringle deliveries, Alfonse, he would give a special Kringle to the gator each day. The gator agreed. The next mornin' all da Cajun families got their Kringles from Alfonse and da gator. "So legend has it dat all da families along da bayou wait each mornin' to see Alfonse and his gator bring dem their Cajun Kringles. So children, remember dat lil ole baker, Alfonse, and his gator every time your family receives a Cajun Kringle.
