J.O. No. 1 Brand Seafood Seasoning - Known as No. 1 because it was the first and is rated No. 1 by customers. Seafood seasoning at its FINEST. Just the correct blend of herbs and spices to enhance the flavors of fish, shrimp, meats, poultry, popcorn, French fries - anything you want to spice up. This blend used by itself brings out the flavor in many white fishes, especially orange roughy and flounder, without disturbing the delicate flavor of the fish. A favorite seasoning for steamed or boiled shrimp, crawfish, crab legs, lobster, etc.
NO SALT

J.O. No. 2 "Crab House Spice" - A ready mix that is a custom blend of spices and salt which adheres to the crab. This blend allows for uniform portions to be applied to crabs. It saves time and you get it right every time. A true Chesapeake Bay flavor. Add after you boil or before you steam. For use on Blue, Dungeness, King and Opilo Crabs.
HAS SALT ADDED

JO #1 is similar to Old Bay. Use it on shrimp, seafood, etc.

JO #2 is for crabs only. It is JO #1 with coarse salt flakes added.

You can make your own #2 by adding your own flake salt to #1. I got this information straight from the folks at the JO Spice Company.

JO is the best hands down.  Old bay is for people who do not crab and have never experienced those Chester River black barts.

No insults intended.  I'm a big fan of JO spice.  Old bay I like on my fries, but for crabs in my opinion there is so much better.  For each his own.

JO #1 brand is a much finer blend.  #2 is much more coarse.  I think #2 is better for crabs.

I like both... JO is a bit salty... I use old Bay for less salt... But JO is a better "crab" seasoning when old Bay is more of an all around "seafood" seasoning.

Agree on the salt in JO2.  Wish they would cut back some with the salt.

Both are good but if you want great crabs you need to do them jersey style😀
Cleaned, olive oil, garlic powder, dry minced garlic, and coarse sea salt.
Save the other two for less important things like side dishes 😁
