    Looks like quite a feast! That is a fun thing to make. You egged the bread so it still counts :)


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

    Looks great.  I love those cooks where you throw them out on newspaper.  Usually, I have a bunch of mud bugs along with the shrimp.  Is that sausage in there too?  Andouille?

    @VillageIdiot, yeah there was Andoule sausage in there too. Kind of our substitute for crawfish around here because the crawfish are hard to come by.

    @Griffin I'd have to look it up to remember exactly what we did but it was basically the standard Old Bay Shrimp Boil recipe with some garlic powder, onion powder, and some tabasco. There were a few beers and whiskeys involved in this production.

    Evidently you don't know shrimp. It looks all wrong. After a illustrious football career at the University of Alabama the army sent me to Vietnam. I then spent some time playing ping pong in China. My final occupation was being a shrimp boat captain. After hiring a legless deckhand we started really bringing them in. I grew the business into a small fleet and eventually retired and worked at the local high school.

    My partner Bubba taught me several dozen ways to cook shrimp. Eventually I opened a chain of restaurants. Basically I'm sharing this with you so you'll realize I know more than you do.

    I should have known @henapple would have known a better way. He probably can spread his boil over much more expensive newspapers. My expertise with shrimp is small so I appreciate his advice. In all seriousness I'm seriously contemplating meeting him in Paducha for some Ozark Oak and that's a 8 hour drive for me.

    He better offer you some rubs too. Make it worth your while.
