Guest Recipe: How To Boil Crawfish Like A Pro

Meet Our Guest:

Kevin “Bah Buh Cue” Weber

Currently he hails from the great state of Mississippi, but he grew up a True Blue Ragin’ Cajun right outside of New Orleans (I believe it’s pronounced “naw-lin’s” if he taught me correctly.) Kevin knows a thing or two about Crawfish and Cookin’ (he has a grill company named after him for goodness sake!).  I asked him to gives us his Crawfish Boil recipe and he delivered! I’ve had his and plenty of other crawfish, and his are the best I’ve had! Well, enough about him, let’s talk about food! Take it away Kevin!

Mini-Fatty

Today’s post is a play on a relatively new BBQ dish called the fatty (if you do a Google search for this, make sure to enter “BBQ fatty,” not just “fatty”… trust me). Fatty recipes vary greatly, but a basic recipe calls for a rectangle (roughly 1’ x 2’) of breakfast sausage (1/4” to 3/8” thick), topped with a thin layer of finely chopped hot links. A smoked sausage link is placed at one end and everything is rolled up into one big loaf. It’s then wrapped in a bacon weave, smoked, and sliced for serving. We wanted to create something similar, but easier to eat at parties, which brings us to the mini-fatty.
