  1. Fill a very large pot about 1/3 full with water. Add the garlic, bay leaves, dry and liquid crab boil seasonings, salt, pepper, oranges, lemons, artichokes, and potatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer, and cook for 20 minutes.
  2. Stir in the corn, onions, mushrooms, and green beans; cook 15 minutes more. Stir in the sausage; cook 5 minutes more. Add the crawfish, return mixture to boil, then simmer until the crawfish shells turn bright red and the tails pull out easily, about 5 minutes. Test for doneness by peeling a crawfish. Be sure not to overcook, or crawfish will become tough.
  3. Drain well. Serve crawfish hot, Louisiana-style, spread over a picnic table covered with newspapers.

Edit on my recipe, use 40 pounds not 4 pounds of live crawfish.

Boiling crawfish is really idiot proof. It is hard to do a bad job if you keep your essentials the same every time. Always include garlic, onions, lemon, and crawfish boil seasoning. We always i...

This was a great variation on mine. I have never used mushrooms or artichokes. Corn on the cob can be used instead of baby corn. Great crowd pleaser. We used it for our daughter's Christenin...

I think this recipe should read "40 lbs of crawfish" not "4 lbs". I have not cooked this recipe, but I have cooked lots of crayfish and this recipe seems like a good one.

Outstanding! Combined several to get my own.
