The Low Country Boil recipe has been rotating around the south for decades. There are many varieties of the boil, some even include crab claws and/or crawfish and oysters. This is our adaptation, and absolutely one of our favorite meals. Warning: this recipe is quite spicy (just they way we like it!) so if you don't care for the heat, change the shrimp/crab boil seasoning to the type in the removable mesh bag.
