Basket for 100 qt. crawfish potPosted by tiger rag 93 on 2/20/13 at 10:54 am
I recently acquired a 100 qt. crawfish pot with burner from my pops. The only problem is the basket he gave me is about 25 qts. I was wondering were in BR would be a good place to purchase just a basket for the 100 qt. pot.

interesting, I'm intrigued. Never thought of this. Do you use one for everything, or crawfish in one, veggie in another? It doesn't keep them too close together? Got any pictures of someone doing this?

Not sure about what's available in BR but if they have a restaurant supply store go there with the pot or measurements and they should be able to help you. I know I bought a heavy duty 100 qt. stock pot a while back and they do have baskets for it. If you come to New Orleans try Caire Restaurant Supply. Good prices too.
I used to use something like that for catching sand crabs in GI when I was a kid, so I was pretty surprised when I saw him doing this for crawfish. It seemed to work though and he was able to get the crawfish out surprising fast.
