    I swear to (I don't have a god) it's the Old Bay!! It's a miracle seasoning!!!


    But then again, crab without seasoning is good to begin with!!!

    Girlfriend is a big fan of OLD BAY. Its ok on some things but .......... Im not using it on crab. Only thing I would think of using is butter and to be honest. I dont want too much butter with it.


    Never had blue crab so I dont know how differant that is then dugenous.

    I do know dongonous is better then king crab ...... will have to try blue crab when I find some.

    Sounds like you are a red lobster kind of crab eater.

    Down here we eat em dirty, no melted butter, just grab one out of the basket take the shell off, split the body and dig in.

    My wife is from ca, and never knew what a "whole crab" looked like, and was afraid to eat at first. She was a red lobster crab eater, but now she is starting to become a real redneck. She does use to many paper towels!

    If you think Im gonna waste my money going out to eat crab ..... your dumber then I thought. Resturants want to fill you with potatoes and salad. When I'M boiling crabs I am usally not having a lot of other things to eat.

    I may not live where I can go out and catch them, but thats not saying I havnt been crabing with friends when Im visiting ........ other then that the grocery does fine when their in season.

    I only had Blue Crabs once. Covered in Old Bay. Convention 2005 in Battimore. Man, beer NEVER tasted so good as that night washin down them crabs. I wonder if I could pull that off in Colorado? Build a steamer from a horse tank.......... I bet I can buy fast froze crabbies......

    It's that line. I feel the same but I dont rub peoples noses in it and I'm not looking for conformation from others so I never mention it and I never have problems.
