i made this a few days ago and everyone loved it. i used 2 lbs of shrimp, 1 lb of kielbasa, 6 red potatoes cut in large chunks, 6 ears of corn broken in half, and a little less than 1/2 cup of old bay. it was very good, and more than enough for 6 adults! i only cooked the shrimp for 2 minutes and it was perfect! thanks so much for sharing!

This was a very fun family meal, perfect for summer, easy to both cook and clean up afterward. I didn't have any small red potatoes on hand, so I cut Idaho baking potatoes in half, width-wise, and let them cook an additional 10 minutes before adding the rest. Also, I only put the shrimp in for 2 minutes -- just long enough for them to turn bright pink. My 10 y/o, who's ordinarily quite picky, asked for seconds. Then thirds! This one's definitely in our regular summer rotation now. thanks, Shawn!

This has to be one of the best recipes I have found for Low Country Boil. I had to change it up just a little and add some Smart Chicken Andoulle Chicken Sausage, Lemon and two beers. The seasoning was perfect and I think that is the hardest thing to get right. My family loved it! Thank you for posting!
