BTW, you can add sausages or hot dogs to the boil if you want them...I like adding fresh green onion sausage and letting the boil cook it. :thumbsup:

If Yanks are squeemish about boiling the crabs live I recommend popping the shells and cleaning before boiling. :thumbsup: Beats bland steamed crabs any day!

Pop often traveled to the gulf coast area for work while I was growing up. In the summers my brother and I would tag along. Some of my favorite memories are the foods we would eat, roast pork and flan in Miami, BBQ in south Alabama, fresh oysters, shrimp, and crawfish in lousianna.

We'd get a big ol sack of boiled crawfish right off the dock, a six pack of grape soda for us, beer for pops.

Good times.

They ain't squeamish, the sadistic bastages steam 'em so it takes 'em longer to die. That's the kind of cruel turn them what can't even shoot a pintail take. Makes a Southern boy thankful to be covered up in sprig that hover off the end of his barrel begging to be shot.

Honestly, we're clueless when it comes to crawfish. lol. They were huge though, at least it seems so to me, about 6 inches long. We caught them, put them in a bucket and let the boys drop them in a nearby stream. :)

My great Uncle Francis (Uncle Pan) lived in Pierre Part, Louisiana. He was a school teacher and then principle at the elementary school there. He knew EVERYONE in town. He taught the Landry gang on swamp people. This is about as authentic a boil recipe as it gets... :thumbsup:

(recipe is per 10 lbs. of crawfish or shrimp)
5 gallons of water
2 lbs. Salt
1/2 cup cayenne pepper
1 cup vinegar
20-25 bay leaves (fresher the better! we pick them off the bay tree in the yard)
(1) 12 oz. bottle Zataran's Liquid crab boil
3-4 spice bags Zataran's crab boil
6-8 lemons cut in half
10-12 onions cut in 1/2 top to root
6 whole pods of garlic cut in half (cut so each clove is in half)
12-18 small new potatoes (small bag)
4-6 ears of corn cut in half

bring to a rolling boil, then reduce heat...boil for 20 minutes. Add new potatoes and boil additional 10 minutes. add crawfish and corn, bring to a rolling boil (start timing it when it reaches a boil) and boil for 5 minutes. turn fire off and let soak 15 minutes...check one bug for taste and if it ain't der yet-soak it som mo until it is spicy enough for you (another 5-10 minutes).


And der ya go....enjoy! :yes: :thumbsup:


Can you use the same pot of water multiple times or throw in more onion, garlic etc every time you put another 10lbs in the pot?

if you are going to do 20 lbs. just double the recipe and boil 'em all at once. You can do this for up to 50 lbs. for most crawfish boiling pots. once you start doing multiple batches, the adjustments can get interesting to make each batch just like the first. What usually happens is the first batch is a little mild and each batch after that gets more seasoned. We let the kids and women eat first and save the last batch for the guys. :thumbsup: and yes-we add more garlic and onions with each batch.

you will not be able to get live crawfish in november (for a price you will be willing to pay anyways). You can get crawfish tails in an etoufee' though. :thumbsup:
