They can't replace the "blues" we got at this time of year cause we can't get fresh "Blues" ....... but they is a great way to pass the time.

Probably only second to 'crackin' crab' is ........  'suckin head'  Shocked and drinkin brew Grin ; Eatin the crawdads  Tongue and drinkin another brew  Wink ...... if ya know what I mean.

Sorry but mudbugs tast nothing like shrimp. Down here in Baton Rouge we boil our blue crabs the same way we boil are crawlfish alive and very spicy.
Best spice is Loiusiana crab boil seasoning and add a little liquid crab boil. To me crawlfish are better than crabs. They just have to be cooked right and yiu have to know how to peal them Grin

Hi Chris -

Eeeeeeee-Yah, Coon [arse]!! I can go through about 5 lbs of crawdads in no time at all, suckin' heads and pinchin' tail with the best of 'em! I use Zatarain's Crab Boil. Most of these folks up North steam their crabs and don't boil them with crawdads, shrimp, potatos ,corn, and boudin sausage like we do down here. Maybe they'll catch on! Can't wait to get over to N'awlins soon as it cools down a bit.

 Cool Doc (In Gulf Breeze, FL)

Boiling crabs is like eating filet mignon with ketchup.  What an injustice!  Shocked  The only way is to steam them with silverqueen corn and small red potatoes on top.  Serve them with slices of MD tomatoes and some cold suds.  Tongue  I know MD is south of the Mason Dixson but with the southerners boiling a fine meal such as the blue crab, it's no wonder they lost.  Grin

..gotta get my two cents in Grin..here in Philly,depending on how you like 'em,different spots will have steamed(Dinardo's in center city)...or some spots will have boiled(Bonk's bar in Port richmond section)....I prefer mine boiled in seasoning I order form a company in upstate NJ...spice is such that after boiling crabs for twenty minutes ;)gravy is a rich,brown color...you can actually take a cup and drink it down..now that's GOOOOD Grin...as far as the crabs go,take them out of the spiced water,leaving them upside down,tear off the backfin at the joint,and suck that juice right on down Grin ;Daaaaaaahhh Wink.then rip crabs apart,juice goin' everwhere Grin..and enjoy(don't forget your favorite flavor,Michelob Grin)

Right On KingCrabber!

Maryland is Southern? Heck, I consider anyone north of Montgomery, Alabama to be a Yankee! And I get nervous anytime I'm north of I-10! If livin' on the Emerald Coast with its crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches is losing, then I don't want to be a winner! Darn, I forgot, only 12 more months of crabbin'!

CrabSlayer -

Actually, I steam all my crabs now, but only after cleaning them. I don't sprinkle on any Old Bay, which I find too bitter, but I drop a bag of Zatarain's Crab Boil in the steamer with a gallon of 1/2 water, 1/2 cider vinegar, and 2 beers (one for me, one for the pot), and steam them for 30 minutes.  I do dip the crab meat in a mixture of rice wine vinegar and Old Bay, though. Thanks for the tip about the Silver Queen corn and Red Potatos - I have a guy down the highway who grows both corn and potatos (and just about everything else a Southern boy could want) down here on his farm and we buy it fresh.  He is only open for the couple of hours each day it takes for him to sell what he picked that morning - and then he closes up and you have to come back tomorrow! How fresh can you get? Would 30 minutes be enough time to cook the potatos?

 Cool Doc

Hey Doc, 30 minutes works for me all the time for both the crabs and the corn and potatoes.  Just make sure the potatoes are not big.  By the way your killing me with that hammock.  I am recovering from a heart attack and quad bypass back in Dec..  Should have spent more time relaxing rather than trying to kill myself.  Wink

Doc, we pick the corn just before its cooked.  Water is boiling before we get the corn.  Tomatoes,  warm off the vine.  Now I know you guys get this stuff earlier but the ESVA is where its at. Grin

CrabSlayer -

I lost my left kidney to the big C last February so I'm taking more time to smell the roses than I used to, too. It was detected very, very, early just by chance with no symptoms and it had not spread. Excellent prognosis - but you know how that goes.  You are all right, there is nothing better than fresh produce to go with your crabs, no matter where you live!

 Cool Doc

PS I heard of one guy who took a propane cooker and pot out into his cornfield and bent the cornstalks down into the boiling water before he cut the ears off! Can't get fresher than that!

Just like the mustard of a crab, that's where all of the flavor is.  Have a friend from Spain who even sucks out fish heads and eats them damned eye balls.  Tongue

Hey Doc if it don't kill us just makes us stronger.  Best of luck to ya!

Kristie -

Yep! You twist the tail off, throw your head back, put the open end of the head (body, really) in your mouth, squeeze it, and suck all the hot spicy juices out with a loud slurping sound!! This is called "Sucking Head". Then you take the tail, hold on to the meaty part with your front teeth (if you have them), pinch hard at the base of the tailfin and pull. If you do it right, the entire tailmeat section comes out in one piece. This is called "Pinching Tail".  It's a real hoot to watch the expression on a newbie's  face the first time they go to a Crawfish Boil and hear these phrases tossed around.

It's a shot glass with vodka, a raw oyster, and a dash of Tabasco Sauce. You just toss it back! If you're eating raw oysters (I do) then you shouldn't worry too much about "Sucking Head"!
