1 1/2 to 2 cups salt
2 tbsp peppercorns
2 tbsp Louisiana hot sauce
2 tbsp Creole seasoning, or to taste

4 ears corn, shucked, halved
2 feet andouille sausage
6 lemons, halved
16 Skinned new potatoes
4 onions, peeled, quartered
4 heads garlic, halved horizontally
4 whole artichokes

24 scallions trimmed & cut into 6" lengths

2 tbsp salt
2 1/2 tbsp paprika

1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tbsp dried thyme

Put all seasonings in a 10 gallon stainless steel pot (that has a
straining basket in it) over a "Louisiana Rig" and bring to a boil.
Taste boil for seasoning and correct to your liking.

Put potatoes and artichokes in pot, bring to boil and cook 5 minutes.
Add remaining vegetables and sausage. Add blue crab and enough
crawfish to fill pot to the top. Cover, bring to boil and then
cut off the heat. Let steep 5-10 minutes. The longer it steeps
