Get at least 5 lbs of crawfish per person.
Buy red potatoes, corn on the cob, garlic cloves, and seasoning....and lots of paper towels.
Go to liquor store and get a bunch of cardboard 6-pack 'flats' to serve it on. Also get several cases of beer (domestic macrobrew, designed for all day comsumption).
Google the directions...but start by cracking a beer.

Louisiana Crawfish Boil Recipe - Allrecipes.com

I love crawdads, but have never cooked them. I should give it a try too! Hope this helps!

I'd suggest for a seasoning that you get some 'OLD BAY'

Start with a smaller test run to see what you actually like or not
you might even come up with your own ideas

Are you cooking live crawfish or crawfish tails? The season for live crawfish is pretty much at an end. If you're buying them frozen, they're generally precooked. The tail meat from China is precooked--Louisiana crawfish tails are sometimes frozen uncooked with the fat.

I've never heard of using Old Bay for crawfish. Crawfish usually call for Tony's (Tony Cachere).
(Btw--they "call" for it by snapping their claws.)

Oildog is pointing you in the right direction if you have live crawfish.

Where are you, Bulldogdad? Our live crawfish season has ended in Houston. Maybe we all need to pay you a visit!
