    Thanks for the comments, all. In South Carolina when I made this up for crowds of 30-50 we just placed a sheet of plywood over sawhorses, washed the top down with soapy water, rinsed it off well and poured out the eats....large spoons & ladles were laid about for fillin' the plates and 2-3 big bowls of pickled okra were placed near the food.

    OK, some of my new Louisiana cooking buddies (they put crawfish in it) tell me to cover the picnic table in the back yard with newspaper and just dump a pot of this out on the table! Then everybody just eats it right off the table! In Destin Florida it's served in a bucket!

    Is there anything BETTER for a party?! Great food, great friends, great beer = one great evening. If you can remember it. And then there's a good old Maryland crabfeast. When we lived in MD, my favorite phone call started with friends asking, "ya feelin' crabby tonight?!"

    This is one I've definitely got to make. My hubby always orders this when we go to Joe's Crab Shack. I can see up pigging out to this one!

    Great, great recipe....I wish I could have given it a 10 rating! I remember the first time I ate this - on vacation near Beaufort, SC. I felt I had died and gone to culinary heaven. I researched - found out how to make it and have been serving it up ever since. I like to serve this with hot, buttered cornbread slices, slaw and icy cold beer. Whew...just the thought makes me smile. Thanks for sharing this!

    All time favorite way to entertain a crowd. Did you know that if you hang a bag of pennies over the seafood boil, it will keep away the flies? Works every time. More spicy, more better, hon!
