How dark do you make your roux for gumbo?

Chinon00 | Oct 15, 2013 06:13 PM

I've been on a gumbo trip for the past month and can't get it as intense as I'd like. I use a peanut butter colored roux w/ smoked turkey wings and lamb necks. It's good and I like it but if I take the roux to a darker color will that provide deeper flavor? And will I have to use more roux in the recipe to obtain the same thickening power?
