Hey ya'll I learned to eat crawfish while living in Biloxi, MS and going to their festival. Do you all boil them in real spicy boil mix and suck the heads, too? I love it cooked Cajun style, though I'm not big on sucking the heads out.

Greywolf, I think a road trip from Florida is needed to find out. Put those dates on the calendar and come find out if they are spicy or not. I think some suck dem heads and some just eat the tail. You should come on up next June 4-6th and find out.

I hear you on that, it'd be nice to go to the east coast again.
I grew up in Iowa and my wife was from Los Angeles and when we moved to Biloxi is when I first learned about eating crawfish. Prior to that, I only used them for fish bait. I told my wife before we went to the crawfish festival that there were a lot of poor people in the deep south and even though they had resorted to eating their fish bait, I wanted to check this out. After eating my first one, I told I'd forget about using these things for catching fish, I'd rather eat these instead of the fish anyways. We learned about a new culture and that crawfish just aren't for bait! We also know a little about eating lobster from when we lived in Maine!

I sure would like to come up. I'lll bring some cajun boil mix with me just in case you all don't cook them spicy! I know how up there you all consider Katchup to be spicy!

I don't think the spice will be needed. You see Wild Bill has been doing this since 1989 at this festival.

I think he has pretty much down to a science. I am not sure it is even possible to buy them live at the festival. But you and your wife should come and join us for the fun.

Tickets go on sale October 15 and we are going to be in Camp Madisonville again. Just a reminder for new comers, you need a camping ticket and festival tickets. This is not a cheap event, but it is worth every penny you pay. Plan on arriving friday midday and staying through monday morning.

CF rally

Met Carl and Elaine this past weekend and they convinced us that it is a must do for next year.... I don't think I'll be growing my pinky nail to a ridiculous length so that I can scoop out the head as I had seen an elderly woman do down on Lake Pontchartrain a few years back.

Thanks for the links Carl, we'll get on signing up next week.

For all Crawfish Fest First Timers...When you get your tickets MAKE SURE you request Camp Madisonville. That's the area with water and electric. And remember...Advance tickets go on sale 10/15/2009...Get 'em while they're hot.

Slight online problem

Ordered tickets this morning, but there were problems with the website; selecting Camp Madisonville and getting the right totals. Michael emailed back that they would be working on it this morning.(5am EST).

Frank,
Should we go ahead and purchase the tickets even if "Camp Baton Rouge" is the only available selection???
