How to make it

  • Bring water to a boil, add additional water as needed, water should be kept at a boiling temp, food will lower temp, when adding food or water just wait for water to boil again
  • All food can be boiled at same time or in batches ( I prefer batches for vegan friends or friends allergic to shellfish)
  • BOILING FOODS - in the order
  • New potatoes - boil hardness out of potato (Approx 20 to 25 minutes), (Serve butter on the side)
  • Corn on the cob - boil for 3 but less than 5 minutes (Serve butter on the side)
  • Chicken – boil until when meat starts to separate from bone. (Approx 20 to 25 minutes)
  • Sausage - boil until meat starts to split (Approx 20 to 25 minutes)
  • WE Save the seafood til last. Takes less time and some are allergic
  • Shrimp - bring for 3 but less than 5 minutes
  • Crawfish - boil for 3 but less than 5 minutes
  • All food items have been cooked, this is just for additional flavor
  • Pour Barbeque sauce into large bowl (All brands work really well)
  • Dip food items (Chicken, Sausage) into the bowl and cover with sauce
  • Place items on a grill on low heat to let Barbeque sauce thicken, add additional sauce as needed
  • Cover large table with newspaper and as foods are done SLING onto the table and gather round.

    I love crawfish boils. In Biloxi we used to have our annual crawfish festival.

    I have an interesting story when I was in labor and on the way to the hospital stopped to eat a boil because I knew I would be eating ice chips and was craving them. LOL My cousin still tells that story.
