    Rick, morning..... Bride makes an open face on an english muffin, crab, tomato, cheese, etc. under the broiler...

    I just looked up recipes and a crab cake, poached egg, muffin w/hollandaise sauce sounds good... I can't think of anything that would not be good with crab...

    Shrimp scampi.... b/flied shrimp in garlic clarified butter on linguini w/herbs etc.... Garlic ciabatta bread... darn I'm gettin' hungry....

    Take lots of pics whatever you make up...

    I need some help folks. I have a 1/2 bushel of blue crabs. I have already steamed them and now want to add some smoke. Have no idea what's the best way. Anybody have any suggestions or recipe ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am using a backwoods chubby.
    Thanks much

    I have grilled crabs, removed the back shell, the gills and tamale, then put on a grill and moped with a  garlic butter. But they were raw when I started, and were not there long enough to have been able to soak up much smoke. Oh and don't forget to sprinkle with some Tony's or Old Bay or Zatarains

  10. What did you use for the steaming spices and liquid. There are somethings that should never be considered for smoking. IMO, most shellfish fall into that group. Oysters are great for smoking, clams and mussels, not so much.
