I switched to Swamp Dust last year. We love it. I always double pot when I boil mine and have not found a better way to do it. It takes a little more work, but they come out awesome.

We steam 'em

5" of water in the pot..(no seasoning)..when the water begins to boil dump the crawfish in pot and time 5 min once steam starts to roll out of top of pot.

Once 5 min has passed dump the crawfish in an ice chest with 2 sticks of butter, lemon juice, bottle of mustard, and zatarans seasoning,

Stir and let sit/steam in ice chest (along with previously cooked mushrooms, taters, onions, garlic, corn etc) for 15 min.

Making me hungry too!

BEST crawfish ever! lol....in no way shape or form are they bland (can make em as hot as you'd like)......the steam soaks up the seasoning in EVERY crevice of the crawfish! Once i had em steamed...i never looked back! HA

A buddy of mine showed us how his cajun grandparents and their family cooked em back in the day and everytime we have a crawfish boil it's done this way.....gone from family to friends etc.....

Crabs we do em the same way!
