    I had a few friends over for a crawdad boil last weekend...

    set up an extra table on my patio...




    heated some water with my old homemade cooker...



    prepared some tatoes, corn, smoked sausage, onions, garlic and lemons...



    made strawberry trifle...



    made a batch of Hey Bud's smoked beans and a casserole.. smoked them in the Memphis Pro while I watched the boiling pot.



    made a couple of salads...



    heated my garlic bread in the Pro...



    seasoned the pot with crawdad boil, onions, garlic, smoked sausage, lemons, and cayenne..



    added the potatoes, then corn, crawdads and shrimp...







    made garlic butter and cocktail sauce....



    served with lots of garlic bread, napkins and cold beer...



    It was kinda fun. :)

    Thanks for looking!

    Thank you Meatinc and Steve!  I wish I would have saved some crawdads for a fattie.. didn't think about it at the time. There was one baggie of leftovers and a friend took them home.  

    There was plenty of extra cold beer on hand... lol  and lots of paper towels.  Most of us stood by the table and snacked. [​IMG]

    Wow lotta work but what a payout!  Where do you get your midget lobsters? I can't find em local around here unless I dig em outta my creek and that could take all summer to get enuff for one cookout.

    Thanks Celtic, Rob, Pit, Squirrel and Bear!  It was a fun night... [​IMG]

    Thank you Lugnutz.. the crawdads grow wild around here. I use the same traps to catch them as I do in my shrimp pond.. unfortunately I didn't have time to get any for this cookout, so I got them at the grocery store. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Eman.. I think you're right!  I coulda cooked a lot more. Thanks! [​IMG]
