Happy 4th of July everyone!!!

I was tasked with providing dinner for my family's get together tonight, but after smoking about 200lbs of pork butt this week, I was too bbq'd out. So I thought, why not a crab boil.

The boil consisted of red potatoes, corn, kielbasa, snow crab legs, shrimp, mussels and scallops. Everyone loved it!

Thanks for looking!

Holy cow! Q or not I'd jump all over that! Being a southern boy from Louisiana (where I grew up) the spices are confusing me though.. You boiled (the best way in my opinion) but used Old Bay (a Yankee spice...lol. :heh: oh crap can I say Yankee anymore? :shock:) but you have some delicious Crystal hot sauce (from Louisiana of course!) It's like I'm pulled in all directions! Lol. :becky:

Nice cook! :thumb:

Oh good lord! :shock: Lol. Actually it sounds like you mostly cooked it Louisiana style. Zatarain's is very good in a boil! Where'd the Old Bay come in at?

I added some to the boil and sprinkled some in the finished product.

Yum factor went to 11.

I like the discussion on spices used. I know old bay and zatarain's. What are other choices? The hubs was just talking about doing a boil and would to know other options from what y'all do.

Great job! :thumb:

Ditto on the Louisiana seasonings. I personally never use Old Bay, but I'd still jump in there!
