WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- ginormous pot outdoor propane turkey fryer works great
- plastic table cloth
- butcher or brown craft paper
- butter warmers
- crackers/tools for getting into crab legs
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- Add water to large pot to just under 3/4 full. Start heating the water and add the salt, vinegar, Old Bay seasoning, bay leaves, and peppercorns.
- Set your table by laying down a disposable plastic table cloth, then butcher or brown paper over top.
- Set butter warmers and napkins along the edges of the table, making sure there's plenty of open space in the middle of the table. TIP: melt the butter on the stove beforehand and pour into the warmers.
- Once the water is boiling, add onions, garlic, jalapeno, artichoke, sausages, and potatoes. Cook for about 15 minutes.
- Add the corn and crab legs and cook for about 10 minutes more.
- Add the shrimp and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, depending how big the shrimp are.
- Wear silicone heat-proof gloves and rubber boots, and carefully strain the food through the colander part of the turkey fryer. Make sure everyone is clear of the table and dump the drained food onto the table.
- Eat with your hands and don't be afraid to toss a few potatoes or shrimp to someone who needs them. Pour a little seasoning salt on the table for yourself to dip into if needed.
- TIP: The melted butter is extra delicious with a crushed garlic clove and/or a splash of vinegar or lemon.
