Wonderful 4th of July tradition at our home. This feeds so many people and can easily be doubled or tripled. I have made this several times on top of the kitchen stove instead of outside on the propane cooker. This is an old Southern Living recipe that I have been making for years. You can easily substitute ingredients, this summer I couldn't find crab legs, so I added several pounds of clams....it was wonderful. The type of sausage is up to you. It's a beautiful dish, and the presentation is just amazing. Serve with hot garlic bread and a lot of napkins.
