Guy Stuff – Crawfish Boil

OK, so interest was expressed in some non-cigar vids in between the normal stuff, so I’ll start with one of my favorite meals! I love food and I love cooking, so I predict quite a few of these type things lol! One of my favorite types of food is seafood, I love pretty much everything I’ve ever tried. Crawfish is near the top of my list so I always get it when I can. The Chinese buffets HATE me because I will actually eat the WHOLE steam tray in a buffet 🙂 Nothing beats getting it live, but that’s very expensive and not always possible, plus when it’s just for 1 or 2 people a big full live boil isn’t an option. What I use here is a bunch of great stuff, it’s all under $25 for 2-3 good meals. You can easily double it if you have two or just a bigger pot and save even more, check for sales. Of course there are other things you can use just as easily like spicy sausage, muscles, clams, scallops, etc. Whatever you like, throw it in! For this I used 4 ears of sweet corn, 3 lbs of crawfish, 1 lbs of medium raw shrimp, a handful of baby red potatoes and some Cajun boil spices.

Boil the water and add the spice, then let the potatoes cook for 20 minutes. Toss in the corn for 10, then the shrimp for 10, the crawfish for 7 and let it all sit off the heat for another 10. Mmmmmm mmmm good!

    • EddieJH

      It is very good. I like to let them sit in butter afterwards for more flavor.

  • pittjitsu

    I would have thought you of all people would add at least one cigar to your boil for flavoring Bryan.

    Thoroughly enjoyed that Brian! Glad you brought up the difference between midwest sweet corn and everywhere else. I had to educate some of GA folk on this over the summer as Im from Iowa.

    A rib vid sounds phenomenal! An excellent dry rib rub vid would be great!

    Great vid Bryan. Looks awesome. I love mud bugs but they are not so easy to get here up north.

  • Anarky

    For the uninitiated, how exactly do you eat a crawfish? Are they like a mini-lobster or more like a shrimp or ?

    • pipeking

      how i eat mud bugs is to, strip off the tail just like a lobster and pop it in your mouth then suck the juice out of the body from where u just removed the tail. then if u wanna get picky pull the main shell off the body and somtimes u can get some little morsels from the sholder of the legs. bon appetit!!

    • EddieJH

      Twist and pull the tail, then suck the juice from the shell, right after eat the tail. Simple as that. They are really good when done right. You should try them some time. 🙂

  • DairyLandCigarFan414

    Really wish I could eat shellfish…damn…allergies…

  • cigarhobby85

    How long do you cook the sausage for?

    • Josh

      I throw it in with the corn, it just has to heat up. The longer you leave it in the more it absorbs the boil taste. I like mine to get as much as possible but, I am from Louisiana and grew up eatting this as a staple.

  • towerladder87

    I enjoy eating crawfish but cost to much to ship them to PA

    • EddieJH

      Wow, why do you have to get them shipped? They sale them at my local seafood plaza.

      • EddieJH

        Craw Fish are my favorite shellfish. I like to sprinkle some Corona with salt and lime over them afterwards. Then the guys and I can’t get enough of them. 🙂

  • swj045
