The chefs at the food channel are going to show you how to do a crab boil the best way possible. First, you are going to need a large pot connected to propane gas and to fill it up with 8 gallons of water to boil. Next, you want to add the seasonings to the pot which are, 2 cups of salt, a healthy amount of black peppercorn, 4 bags of seafood pickling mixtures, 3 small bottles of cooking oil, and a nice amount of hot sauce for some kick. You want to add the top back to the pot and let that sit for 5 minutes, and then you add corn, artichoke and 7 minutes later add the sausage, onion, garlic. After 7 more minutes you want to add the shrimp, asparagus, and crab and cook another 7 minutes, turning off the heat when water is returned to boil. The whole process should take about 35 minutes and then you're ready to eat.
