    Shouldnt be a problem. I use the same sized pot on a propane burner. You'll probably need to make 2 pots full. The crawfish need to steam in a cooler for about 15 minutes after you boil them so you have plenty of time to cook the whole 20 lbs....140 lbs on the other hand took me over an hour and a half to cook. My guests were stuffed silly before I got to eat from the last fresh batch.

    Nah. A 6 pound die off on 140 pounds is within my tolerence. If half had died, that would be a different story. You need to expect a few to die in transit. Figure these things live in water. I adjust my order to compensate for a die off. Just get them in the pot as soon as they arrive and you'll be fine.

    Make sure you do EXACTLY what is in the directions they send you. One thing they dont mention, but I do, is purge the crawdads in saltwater for about 10 minutes just prior to putting them in the pot. The saltwater causes the crawfish to excrete the mud in their digestive tracks. It cleans their insides out. Dont keep them in the brine too long because it will kill them quickly.

    Forgot to mention that as soon as FedEx delivers them, IMMEDIATELY pull the bag of crayfish out of the cooler and rinse them off with the hose! The longer they sit in the cooler, the quicker the casualties mount.

    If you plan on cooking them later that day, put fresh ice on the bag and reclose the cooler. Only open the bag just before you plan on cooking them because you'll be chasing crawdads all over the place. F'ers are FAST!

    My group has been seriously considering going there during frozen fury. My concern is the new marinade courtesy of BP. *******s.

    Crawfish are freshwater and farmed pretty far inland so the spill has nothing to do with it...unless a hurricane hits.
