Jessica K's Note:
I know this is easy and you can have this done at the store but it's so much better hot off the stove at home!!

- 1You will also need: Big pot with water.
- 2Season the water with a couple dashes of garlic salt, some fresh ground pepper to taste, and about 1/2-1 cup of old bay.
- 3Remember these are outside shells and you're trying to penetrate flavor to the inside, although if you buy the good legs they should be slit (at least the claws) for easy access.
- 4Then squeeze all the lemons into the water and throw them into the pot, too.
- 5Then put the legs into the water.
- 6The water should boil, watch it to make sure it doesn't boil over and make a big mess!
- 7It should take at least 15 minutes to come to a boil, let boil for 4-5 more minutes so they can get a nice flavor in them.
- 8Dump in sink in colander, and let cool for a couple minutes.
- 9If you think it might be too spicy for ya then rinse it off a little bit.
- 10Meanwhile heat you up some butter, maybe 1/2 stick in microwave, in a couple small bowls and squeeze some lemon in it.
- 11Perfect for dipping the crab in!
- 12But only if ya like lemon--if not just heat up the butter to dip the crab into.
