To the fellas that like a dipping sauce, try boiling with Zattarains crab boil dry seasoning.  No need to dip.  Good to the last drop.  You can add Jo or old bay after they boil, wont need much if any. Flavor is already in the meat.

I've seen you drink.  So I'm guessin' the recipe is:

2 gal. water
1 tbsp. backwash
1 small bottle of what might be cider vinegar or might be the jar you just relieved yourself in.   Grin 


You're always thinking, aren't you Mike?

I switched away from eating crab meat dipped in crab spice to dipping it in cider vinegar with a few drops of liquid Zatarain's crab boil seasoning.  Tangy & a little bit spicy hot.  Love it.

Since I don't like crying over spilled beer, I quit wasting beer and just use vinegar and water. 1 cup vinegar to about a quart of water. The less fluid, the faster it boils... the sooner I eat.

I can't tell any difference between using vinegar, beer or just plain water. Crab houses use live steam. No  vinegar or beer.

I couldn't tell you the ratio that I use because I have huge steamers (1 holds 1 - 1 1/12 bu and the other holds 2+ bu).  I use about a gallon of vinegar and then use enough water to bring it to the bottom of my basket that the crabs are in.

Man, I gotta get some crabs. Cool

A few other things out of the ordinary that I and others do is. I steam them without any seasoning sprinkled on the shell. I just dip them in melted butter and old bay. Many like to just dip the crab meat in dry seasoning from a side dish .Another old time Baltimore dip is mustard and mayonnaise mixed together .These same ingredients are used in crab cakes so it tastes more like a crab cake when dipped like this. Most of us were taught to steam crabs by covering the crabs with massive amounts of salty crab seasoning which is good for the crab seasoning company's bottom line . This mostly winds up in the garbage and ultimately we have a big mess on our hands. There are lots of ways of preparing them.

1 can beer : 1 beer can apple cider vinegar : 1 beer can water

Basically equal parts of the three.  Liberally season in layers.

I prefer JO #2 but the wife like Old Bay so we go back and forth.

Years ago, I couldn't decide which I liked the most, so I now mix J.O. & Old Bay 50/50 - and have never received a complaint.

I buy the cheap beer ( AB products) to steam with. 1 can beer, 1 can water, and about a cup of vinegar to steam in my 44 qt size pot. Who would want to use a good craft beer to steam with? Just wasting money there. Save the good beer to drink.

Is that true that all crab houses just steam with only water?

   99% do.......and most add seasoning after steaming to make less of a mess in the kitchen.

I do equal parts of each, but I will give your way a shot.  Thanks.

  years ago my uncle told me the formula for water,beer,and vinegar:    a turd, a turd, and a turd.
