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
