All crab loving men like love this recipe!

About 2 dozen blue crab (or other crab will do)

Kosher or sea salt

Cayenne pepper

1 pound of butter (4 sticks)

3 Tablespoons of liquid crab or shrimp boil

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 Tablespoon lemon pepper seasoning mix

1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 Teaspoon paprika

6 large lemons, quartered

Clean the crab thoroughly, and then crack the claws but do not remove the shells.

Sprinkle the crabs generously with the salt & cayenne.

Mix the butter, liquid boil, lemon pepper, garlic powder, worcestershire, and paprika in a saucepan.

Squeeze the lemons, and add the juice and the lemons to the pan, mix well, and heat the butter mixture over low heat until the butter is melted.

Take your basting brush and brush about 1/3 of the sauce all over the crabs.

Place the crabs, cavity side down on your grill or barbecue pit over a medium to low fire.

Close the lid and cook for about 10 minutes.

Tuen the crabs over and fill the cavities with more of the butter sauce.

Close the lid (at this point the smell is wonderful) and allow to cook for another 10- 15 minutes. This will vary according to your heat and size of your crab.

When ready brush the remaining butter sauce on the crabs & serve & enjoy!

Pass the ice cold beer!
