Practice makes perfect...as in most things.
They just don't get it. I catered an event this past Saturday night and 65/70 people devoured 400# in about 2 hrs. If you've got to peel the 1st ring off of the tail to "pinch and suck"....they ain't cooked right and you'll be left behind. I generally don't book any jobs until the week after Easter as the price and quality or not at their best, but this was an engagement party so timing was of essence. They were small to med. with good fat content. Oh, and if some of you "northerners" don't know what the fat looks like, I'll let some other Louisianaian explain as I always get myself in trouble doing it. Seasoning in the water, boil and soak. THE ONLY WAY TO DO IT. JMOA
