I was looking at some of those recipes at TOH and All Recipes and I think I can adapt them to the crock-pot I've never really eaten jumbalya or gumbo, so I'm not sure which is the best way to go.

Karen just pulled my slow cooker book here is recipe for Jambalaya:

3-4 lb roasting chicken, cut up
3 onions, diced
1 carrot, sliced
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. white pepper
14oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 lb. shelled raw shrimp
2 cups cooked rice

1. Combine all ingredients except shrimp & rice in slow cooker
2. Cover. Cook on low 2-3 1/2 hours, or until chicken is tender
3. Add shrimp & rice
4. Cover. Cook on high 15-20 minutes, or until shrimp are done.

Sounds easy & good.
Have a few more if you need them. Just give me a shout.
