You just gotta know how to do it. I can eat 5 crawfish to 1 shrimp all day long. We also cook about 500 lbs. of shrimp a year in our hood.

Its not doctored up with that stuff its all part of the meal.The corn,potatoes,sausage,mushrooms,and onions absorb the sesoning that you boil them in and makes them that much better.The real trick is purging your crawfish to get all of the mud out of them.I am with you on the Pabst though,there is definetly better beer out there.

not doctored up, we call them side Items, but all in one pot. And lemon is the same as with shrimp at alot of resteraunts.

Pabst bottle is great, but the can is junk. I like it more so for the label than anything and the playing cards under the caps, I'm a Miller Lite guy myself, or import.

Do you just buy the crawfish at a store or do you go out and catch them?



My cousin has a cabin on an island right near Kenora Ontario on the Winnipeg River system. This was the first full summer for him being on the water. While we were cleaning out the old boathouse... we happened across some traps.

We placed the guts/skin/head from filleted fish inside the traps, tied them to a rock & set them up for a few days, checking them and emptying the catch into a 5 gallon bucket. Our haul was not the biggest (numbers) but enough to get the idea of cooking more. We had been catching them with nets & flashlights since we were kids, but never thought about getting enough to eat.

Well the kids were hesitant at first to try them, but once they did they were hooked! Old Bay seasoning & some Cajun spice with garlic butter to dip. The very next morning all the children tended the traps so we could have another LARGER crawfish boil. We ended up catching a few that were so big that you could even eat the meat out of the claws - there were a few that were 4"+!

Next summer we'll try the more traditional way of boiling corn & potatoes along side the crawfish. We would have, but being on an island means logistics have to be figured out before you get there.



So anyways... Anybody have tips on catching them? Better traps or bait? we used traps like these. How to Make a Crawfish Trap | eHow.com

Have done both, but we cook so much a year its just more logical to buy them from a reputable source. I have a guy here that can get me some Monster Selects that you could eat the claws out of most of them.

I will be taking some pictures of some and posting them in the months to come.

We have our 6th annual Crawfish boil at our house this year. 70+ people, 300 lbs. crawfish, t-shirts, huggies, the whole nine yards.

Those are side items.

Seasoning is just for that... to season to taste.

I know I've seen some crazy things go in that pot. Wings, beanie weenies, hot dogs, all come out great tho.

My favorites, Mushrooms, onions, corn, sausage, peanuts. Just lost interest in the potatos.

None taken...

If you boiled crawfish in plain old water, it'd probably taste like your dog's *** (much like shrimp or crab). But hell if it isn't AWESOME after a little cajun flavor!! Like said before, the corn, potatoes, mushrooms, etc. etc. is just a side.

Oh, and leftover potatoes from the boil make the best tater salad

PBR or Miller High Life.. I can go with either.
