Better Than BBQ!!!

Discussion in 'Non-fish Seafood' started by tbrtt1, May 8, 2016.

  1. Few things in life are better than good BBQ. One of them is a good crawfish boil. I have always considered crawfish boils to be the reason Louisiana is not known for BBQ. Its just not a fair fight where I come from. 

    Here are a few pics from today's Mother's Day crawfish boil.

    I also threw some wings in the PBC, but my technique was flawed. Lost a few in the coals as they didn't want to stay on the skewers. I'll have to rethink how I can hang them on skewers. I know it can be done. If anyone has any ideas I am all ears. Sorry, no final pics of the wings. Too busy eating crawfish.

    Sorry you missed the invite and I didn't get one either but he did say it was for mothers day so maybe we'll get an invite for fathers day you think?

    Nice Boil !![​IMG]

    I don't know what happened to lose some wings, but how about using two skewers with each row of wings, so they don't spin---Would that help?

  5. Come on down. We're just outside of Houston here in The Woodlands. Gotta come soon cause crawfish season will be ending pretty soon. 
     
  6. Maybe. I tried sticking a small potato on the end to keep them from sliding off, but to no avail. I will have to review a very lengthy thread from another forum where I saw all sorts of critters and even some vegetation hung in a Pit Barrel Cooker

    Maybe I just didn't stick the potato on well enough. Fear not, I will try again.

    I think that's brilliant . Mine is an outsiders view from way down here but I love cooking with roots & connection to people's heritage .
