Shrimp Boil in a Turkey Fryer

Found this online http://www.skiptomylou.org. We made it for July 4. We were tired of the same ol' burgers and dogs menu. It was AWESOME! So easy to do! We had one person be the "timer" and it was great! Although it rained all day, we laid out a tablecloth and freezer paper at the kitchen counter and it was a blast! This is a must try!
