Crawdad Boil

I cooked up a batch of crawdads for one meal this weekend. It looks like a lot of work but
a crawdad boil is an easy way to feed a crowd with not much effort. :)

I decided to add a few crab legs to the pot....just because they are one of my favorites.






I seasoned the pot with crab boil, added salt, cayenne, lemons, garlic, onions, smoked sausage, new potatoes. hmmmm, I think that was all.


Added some corn then the crawdads....



Tossed in the crab legs and shrimp....



Pouring the feast onto the table....



It was steaming hot...




Served lots of garlic bread, garlic butter, cocktail sauce and plenty of paper towels...


This was not my plate, I stood by the table and snacked. :)


Everything came out really tasty, my company seemed to enjoy the food. :)

You left out the lemon grass and cloves!

BTW, don't know if ya remember me, but I'm working on my cold smoke house. Just started the copper pipes to act as a radiator during the hot texas summer. I've been taking pics along the way, hope to have it done by early september!

Dang it I DID forget the lemon grass and cloves!! lol
I do remember you too. :)
Please let me know how your smokehouse cooling system works out. I know your area gets some really hot weather. The last smoke I did, I smoked at around 110 degrees with no problems, but I was smoking spices, honey, olives and other stuff.

I'd love to see some pics too if you get the chance.

I'll remember the lemon grass and cloves next time. lol

HAHA I Like how you say crawdad. In Louisiana we call them crawfish.

They're good eating whatever you call em.
