I love the boiled dinners with Zatarain's spices.

They are a treat in themselves and when I attend one I become a

But living in Maryland right next to the bay I have to say I prefer steamed crabs and shrimp over boiled. And since I grew up on it Old Bay is the spice to use.

Haven't had a crab feast yet this year but usually do it at least once a year.
I like to wait until later in the season when the crabs are fat and the weather is cooler.

Living here all my life, I've never had the pleasure. I'm open to invitations though.

Same here, Kay. I've heard and read about them and always thought low country boils sounded like a lot of good eatin', partyin' fun!

I'm happy with shrimp, crab or crawfish boils, except I have to admit I prefer the shrimp as they are much less work than the other 2 when it comes to eating time. Unless of course I can con somebody into doing the picking for me!

Yes, I'm lazy about picking.

Not much chance of that.

It's every man for himself.

When we were kids my parents would wait until we went to bed to have crabs. But we'd always wake up and they'd end up picking crabs for us kids. One day my father had enough and said that if we wanted crabs then we needed to learn to pick them for ourselves. After that crabs were allowed during the day time.



I'd also like a description of a "Santa Maria Barbeque" shindig!

Yeh I know. The first couple of times Craig's family (originally from MD) had a crab boil Craig and 1 of his brothers picked for me but I was on my own after that.

I had to start picking my own crawfish 10-15 minutes into my first time as it was definitely everyone for themselves at that table. I got several demonstrations on sucking head and eating tail and was on my own after that. Son-in-law's family are from LA and it was a day or 2 before the wedding and we'd been partying all afternoon so everyone was in fine spirits.

It's a BBQ style based on locally grown foods, local wine, and even down to the local coastal oak trees used to smoke the meat. Here's a couple of links.

And a little about the history...
