Seafood boil.

3-5gallon pot. Usualy just take the pot I fry turkey in as it's big enough if we have a larger crowd.

Basicaly get the potatos in first with a mild seasoning. Let them get about 1/2 cooked and add your main parts.(finish seasoning here) Leave the veggies for last and cook to consistance. I like my veggies a little crisper so when the main parts are done, it only take a few mins till soup.

We've done everything from srimp, sausage and crab. To lobster and turkey.

Once it finishes cooking, lay a sheet of either cookie paper or we've even had to use a sheet if bisqeen on your serving table (pic nic tables work well) and dump the whole container on top of it. (after draining, of course).

Folks can walk up and do the whole buffett at once. It goes over huge in the forest. I'm always asked to do this atleast once a trip.

Good times.

Great idea! We do it fairly often. Of course, our favorite is Shrimp, Corn & Potatoes. I'll throw a few crayfish and maybe some whole crabs in once in a while.

Here's how we do it.
Bring water to boil.
Add seasoning (we use the bag type).
Add Potatoes and Corn (if I'm doing crabs I add them now too).
If I'm doing Sausage, Turkey/Chicken or Lobster I add them when the potatoes are about 1/2 done, like Bulldog said.

Wait till the potatoes are done and add the Shrimp.

Potatoes and Corn take the longest to cook.
Meats take second longest.
Veggies take less time unless you're wanting some carrots. They take about the same as the meats.
Most people don't realize it but Shrimp take the least time to cook. 5 minutes is all they need. Sometimes even less. As soon as they START to turn pink take them out of the water. They continue to cook so they're plenty done. If you cook them too long it makes it a lot harder to get the shells off them. The shell will stick to the meat.

Now I'm hungry! You're making me wanna go get some Shrimp this weekend.

We love shrimp boils too. As a matter of fact we are leaving to camp at a near by Corp of Engineer site tomorrow and the kids are joining just Saturday for a shrimp boil. Here is a link to the recipe I use. There is no guess work with this recipe and is the best we have every had. Look under recipes and check out the others too.
