1. Wash and rinse neck bones in cold water. Place drained neck bones into a bowl. Season neck bones with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.

2. Melt three tablespoons of butter over medium heat in a large shallow pot.

3. Once hot add neck bones and Sautee for about three minutes or until some color appears. Turn off the heat and take out the neckbones.

5. In the same pot pour in vegetable oil and let heat. Once hot pour in all-purpose flour and whisk to make a roux. Continue to whisk roux until it’s a nice brown color and smelly nutty, this should take about five or six minutes.
