~ I Highly suggest getting Justin Wilson's "Outdoor Cooking With Inside Help" cookbook and following his real recipe, the recipe that's posted here is way waaay off. Its not even telling you that the crawdads need to be purged, cleaned and the dead ones picked out first before boiling!!
super tasty! I only had about fifteen pounds of crawfish but it was only for my wife and I and our two kids. this was a great meal. I took all the leftover crawfish and used the meat for a crawfish pasta the next day. thanks
Crawfish season is over right now, but the ZWT made this recipe very attractive to me and my Cajun husband. :) We were only feeding about a doxzen people, so I quartered the recipe, and we subbed 4 pounds of shrimp for the 12 pounds of crawfish (you get more meat out of a pound of shrimp than a pound of crawfish). We also dumped in 3 pounds of sausage instead of just 1/4 pound. This was FANTASTIC! And next year, when the crawfish are $1/pound, we are going to be calling all our friends and pulling up this recipe! Things we learned: It took about 30 minutes for 8 gallons of water to come to a boil on the outdoor burner. The whole process took about 2 hours. DH said he will prick the potatoes next time to let the seasoning get into the potatoes.
AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH, son! Man, is dem sum gud mudbugs!!! MMMMMMM cant wait to git me sum mo!
