Boiled Crawfish for a Crowd -- Justin Wilson

Recipe by Dreamgoddess

This is one of the Zaar recipes that I adopted. I hope to make this soon as it looks like a dish my family would enjoy. Of course, I'll have to drastically reduce the amount of ingredients! I’ll edit the recipe accordingly if needed.

~ I Highly suggest getting Justin Wilson's "Outdoor Cooking With Inside Help" cookbook and following his real recipe, the recipe that's posted here is way waaay off. Its not even telling you that the crawdads need to be purged, cleaned and the dead ones picked out first before boiling!!
