That is a cool idea. Do you contain the pellets or just lay them on. The first thing that came to mind was cutting the bottom out of a tuna can and set it on the burner.

Sorry I didn't elaborate on the crab boil. They pegged it real good. Old bay is the closest thing I've found to it. Kick it up with some red pepper and it's close.

STAND up wind when you use it for boiling. The longer you let it soak the spicier it gets.

Do you purge them in fresh water?

Nepas,
In the video he said he rinsed them twice in the cooler. I guess that would be purging them. Ron said that the water was running clear after the second rinse so he didn't need to do it a third time.

Neat video, Ron!

There is a place near Springfield that has fresh crawfish flown in a couple times a week during the summer.  They sell them raw, or boiled up and ready to eat by the pound.   Might have to look into that..

My wife's uncle told us to never buy bugs that are already dead, Fresh movers are better.

Good to know!   These things must be flash frozen, then shipped up.

Nepas,
I know your picture is of you out hunting but it looks like a shriveled up thumb when you use it as an avatar! Just thought I thought would through that out there.

Great looking yard birds NePas, bet they tasted even better. Also cool idea of using the pellets.
ronbeaux, great vidieo. Crawfish is something on the must try list.
Quarlow have you checked sobies or foodland becuase we have old bay seasoning here in our stores. It usualy located on the bottom shelf of the spice and seasoning area.

I've never even heard of those stores! Where might I find them. I'll google it.

NePaS - Good looking chickens.  Interesting idea with the pellets.  I don't have a pellet pooper and so don't have any around.  When I first got my OBS, the bisquettes were a few days behind.  So, I used some hickory chunks on the hot plate to season the OBS.  Got a lot of smoke.

I've never done crawfish.  We have the larger variety up here in the northeast.  :D

As I suspected there is none of these SOBEY's stores within 1000 miles of me and the closest Foodland is in Ontario. Oh well. Thanks though.
