Nice. Haven’t had them in quite awhile. One of the guys that runs one of our plants was from Louisiana. He used to do big crawdad boils

I love those things & it's been a while since I've had any!
And your right, I've never seen them that big before!
I bet that was some good eating!

Beautiful Crawfish!!
Wish we had some like that around here.
Up here we call ours "Crayfish", and they aren't good for anything but "Bass-Bait".
Like.

Super jealous! We also call them crayfish where I'm from, and you can catch them down in some of our local rivers. Although it would take a while to get enough for a big boil like that. Still never had a proper crawfish boil. It's high on my bucket list. Do you make them spicy?

I like spicy but really they don't pick up that much of flavor. They done so quick. I heard to throw ice in water so they can sit longer will give more flavor. I do sprinkle the spice over them when they come out.

If you check out Malcom Reed on YouTube he has a pretty good tutorial on a crawfish boil and how to soak so that they pick up all the juices and spices from the boil. Seems pretty similar to the the way I’ve seen people do it down in Louisiana if that helps any.
