    Crab bake

    Any advice for a labor day crab bake? I've boiled crabs before in a mixture of water and beer which brings out a great flavor than just water. Would love to hear other suggestions!

    Are you doing a Low County Boil.

    That uses Old Bay seasoning and you can add corn, potatoes, sausage, and even shrimp.
    Beaufort Stew (Low Country Boil)
    It is great for labor day.

    I use this as a base recipe, but to mine, I often throw in a few beers with my water, but I do a few things a bit differently.

    I cut my corn in half, also the sausage I cut in 2-3" pieces for easier serving. I use baby red potatoes, always add shrimp and often crab, blue crab or snow crab legs

    I also add 1 large onion cut in quarters to flavor the broth too. Mussels are also excellent thrown in. My favorite is to throw in some of the frozen baby artichoke hearts (birds eye brand is fine), I throw them in frozen, they go great with the other food.

    I also serve with a spicy cocktail sauce and garlic butter sauce as well as plenty of lemons to squeeze on the shrimp and crab.

    I have also rather than using a big pot I have used a couple of big aluminum tins on my grill. Made sure to add some wood chips on the coals of in a wood box and cooked the crab in Old Bay, lemons, and Beer in the pans on the grill. It does get a bit of smoky flavor

    For shrimp I love to boil in beer, Old Bay and cajun seasoning. They get a nice spicy flavor to them.
