As you already know, its mudbug season everywhere and I remember a time when folks didn't want to touch crawfish, now everybody loves them for the most part. I've always been leery about eating boiled crawfish in Texas because like everything else, folks here try to "put their own twist" to something simple like pouring "sauce" onto a seafood that you will have to PEEL to eat, which to me, is kind of ass backwards. If you want sauce, peel, then DIP...but I digress.

So on my last visit to Louisiana, I shared a TikTok video and wrote an article about the proper way to boil crawfish from a store owner who routinely SELLS OUT of his crawfish every week. But some nerds disagreed with his method (which I didn't show completely to protect his recipe) which is what folks do in the internet era but I got wind of something going down in April that I invite ALL crawfish lovers to go to and put up or shut up.

If you love crawdaddies like I do, then this is the SUPER BOWL of Boils right here!
