  1. just did my crawfish boil yesterday and i LOVE swampfire. use it every time i boil. i will have to give Louisiana a go.

  2. Oh yum that looks very tasty you guys!! i need to try and cook some of those up soon!!

  3. Man I like your channel and now that I’m fishing up in Wisconsin watching videos from back home, from Mobile, but I gotta admit I like my bake or grilled lobster a little more than crawfish so I don’t think I could bring myself to do it.

  4. I’m from Illinois and just visited my brother and his family in Baton Rouge and we did a Crawfish boil. It was the first time either of us had tried and it turned out awesome. Definitely going to save this video for the next time.

    1. Were you going to add on to this comment or am I supposed to extrapolate what you intended to say? I appreciate you being interested enough to comment on a 5 month old comment though!

  5. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥😍😍😍thx for that recipe!!! I am getting all of that stuff quickly bc this video is making me hungry! love your vids btw and I am considering naming one of my baby bass Moby bc he has got the same personality!

  6. The pond looks insane! Also I watched the last crawfish cook video probably 10 times, this one is just as good!

  7. Nice job BamaBass and Liz. Louisiana chimin in here. Cook crawfish the same way you do lobster, except once the pot starts smoking 3 minutes. That water boils up and fills the pot. Almost like a steaming effect. Take the water hose to the outside of your pot, it’ll cool it down and stop them from cooking. Also, it drAws all the juice inside the crawfish. Less water less seasoning . 👍🏼👍🏼

  8. Love your videos man, I have a video idea I feel is right up your alley. I recently saw a youtuber fishing using meat purchased at a grocery store. I would love to see you test beef, pork, chicken, and even some of the fish that’s sold there, see if your fish eat it, like it and if I can use it for bait or if that youtuber was just a 1 off.

  9. Man i need to try a crawfish boil now!!! I keep watching these videos and it looks so good

  10. Love this video! I was born and raised in Alabama. I now live in Texas and miss conecuh soooo much. I just found them at my local grocer and I was soooo excited!

    1. Kortne…Greetings from Mobile Alabama.
      My wife & I had our camper down at Gulf Shores for the last 4 days…I did a shrimp boil for us & all my daughters friends…I added 2 packs of Conecuh sausage to my shrimp…totally the best sausage in the south!!!
      Much love from Mobile Alabama.

  11. I have a comment regarding purging with salt. First of all, everyone I know that boils crawfish does it a little differently. So, if you like how they turn out, then there’s nothing wrong with it. You’re also right that you can purge without salt, but I’ve found using salt really speeds up the process.
    I will empty a sack in an ice chest, pour 1-2 lbs of salt. Then add enough water to cover the crawfish. Drain the water.
    Insert plug, fill it again (just enough to cover) and drain. After that I give them a quick rinse and they’re done.
    So, I can purge a sack in about 10 minutes. I don’t think the crawfish taste any differently, but it saves some time, which can be helpful if you are cooking a bunch and/or you have people asking “when is the next batch going to be ready”. 🙂

    1. Why would salt speed up the purging? I’ve never tried crawfish so I’m curious.

    2. @Gaijilla himself The theory is the salt causes the crawfish to purge everything they’ve consumed.

    3. LSU ag center put this to rest. Unless you are doing a comercial 2 day purge then adding salt does not cause the crawfish to purge. It’s sad that we spent tax dollars to settle this debate with empirical data but the truth is adding salt does not clean them out any faster, only time does that.

    4. @Rob Snider Yeah, I found out a truly cleaned crawfish is one that has been washed with fresh super oxygenated water. The process was developed originally as a way to hold inventory. However, it was discovered that the crawfish purge themselves within 24 to 36 hours regardless of the time in water or out.
      So, over the last few boils for this season, I tried purging with salt vs filling an ice chest full of water vs just giving them a good rinse. There was really no difference. So, my last two boils, I just rinsed them and they were great. Just rinsing them saves time and saves water, and I don’t think anyone could tell a difference.

  12. I’ve never cooked crawfish before but I followed this recipe today and my friends and family and I loved it. Thanks for the informative video and keep making 🔥 content.

  13. Me and my family tried ur way with the same seasoning and we loved it!! It was very delicious 😋

  14. You inspired me! I’m in the back woods of AZ. Made a big trap baited with a can of chicken with holes punched in it and threw it in the nearest waterhole. Caught 6lbs. of crawdads in it overnight and made a feast. First time I ever ate any. Thank you! We have to haul our water to the house, so I see California’s point about rinsing them for 20 minutes haha.

  15. We dont cook lobster in louisiana at our crawfish boils (for those who dont know in louisiana a crawfish boil is like a backyard barbeque)

    1. @Deven Perez as someone who was raised on authentic New Orleans crawfish boils, I agree with this comment. You are right. Lobster is grand.

    2. @Nikki Nunez adding Cajun seasoning and something being Cajun is completely different mane

  16. Wow! a lot of crayfish. Thanks for sharing your cooking recipes

  17. From Australia, always wanted to come to Louisiana and experience this. 🤤
