    Had some crawfish my buddy gave me after his crawfish boil I was @ Saturday. Took the tails, and as much as the "crawfish butter" as i could. Also took some Kona crab from last night, some cream cheese, a seeded jalapeno, some parsley, and some Tony C's. Tossed em all in the food processor, and turned out a great filling. Took the tops off some jalapenos, and cored them with a standard potato peeler. Filled the peppers, and fixed some bacon on top. Also doing some bb ribs.

    thanks Piney,

    the mix was really tasty. just a ton of flavor. Should go well with supper(bb's, and a tortellini salad I made).

    I don't think you could have a better present happy b-day! I have only used canned crab (yeah I know) but love it! Will use this recipe for Easter, we are taking a bunch of food to Iowa.

    these were really good, had the weber kettle fires up to finish the ribs, so i tossed the ABTs on for a few seconds.

  19. I notice you are laying the abt's on the grill. Give the site a look, they sell racks to put the abt's in so you don't have to worry about them falling through. I've been using one for years and love it!!!!

    Great looking ABT's. I too love crawfish, also. My Family is from Louisiana, had many crawfish boils in the backyard growing up. Miss that. Sometime I'll have to bite the bullet and have some flown in, then I'll give your crawfish/crab ABT's a try.
    Thanks for sharing
