Combine the melted butter and flour in a large heavy pot, stirring constantly over media heat. Cook until the roux is a dark, chocolate brown color (about 20 to 25 minutes).
Add the chopped onions, green peppers, celery, Andouille sausage and Tasso smoked meat. Cook, stirring continuously, until the vegetables are very soft (about 8 to 10 minutes).
Add the paprika, the "Emeril's Bayou Blast" and the gumbo file. If you want a spicier dish, add the Ancho pepper. Cook for about 1-2 minutes.
Add the cold chicken stock or broth. Stir until the roux mixture and the broth are well combined.
Add the bay leaves and the brown sugar, bringing the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
Add shrimp to the soup approximately 15 to 20 minutes prior to serving (size of the shrimp will determine how long they need to cook). Add salt and pepper to taste.
If preparing gumbo the night before, let the gumbo cool (below 40° F) before putting in the refrigerator and cover pan. To re-heat gumbo, place gumbo in a double boiler pan on stove top. Let the gumbo heat to 165° F and stir frequently before serving to guests. Gumbo with shrimp will refrigerate for up to three days. If prepared gumbo without shrimp, it will refrigerate for up to five days. If freezing left over gumbo, place in freezer container or bags for up to two weeks.
