Crawdads and Bacon Wrapped Corn on the Drum

One of my favorite snacks! A simple crawdad boil, drum style.

I make this for the Super Bowl every year but made it for New Years eve too.

Seasoned the pot with Swamp Dust. This was my first time using this seasoning, it was recommended by cooking friends CajunTy and Wickedcajun from Louisiana.  Thanks again, I loved the stuff! 

Did my usual bacon wrapped corn. Drizzled the ears with olive oil, seasoned with Big Poppa's rub and wrapped in bacon.

Seasoned the pot of water with the Swamp Dust, garlic, onions, salt and cayenne to taste, smoked sausage, lemon juice and threw in the new potatoes to get a head start.

Added the corn...

When the taters were starting to get tender, I added the crawdads...

Last in the pot was the shrimp...

They cook quick...

While the pot cooks I rotate the corn for even cooking. I love crisp bacon. :)

That's it! Served with garlic butter for dippin', crunchy bread and cold beer. 

I usually add crab legs to the mix but just had them not long ago and believe it or not... I wasn't hungry for them! (probably a first for me!)

Hope everyone is having a great 2015 so far. Thanks for stopping by!

I'm still alive!

Sorry I have been absent from blogging. Life seems to have stuck it's foot out and tripped me up again.
Hope to get back in the swing of things soon!
Anyone else having photobucket problems?
