What size crabs you talking? A good crab doesn't need a whole lot of seasoning. A good #2 Manchac crab can be outstanding with not much more than salt and pepper.

Full crabs take up very little seasoning, regardless of how much you add or how long you soak. Poor crabs get VERY spicy very quickly...

Sorry i don't agree. But here is mine.

1-1/2" bags of swamp dust. Jar of cayenne pepper, jar of garlic powder. Boil 5 to 7 min. Let soak. Place crabs shell side down in container or ice chest. Eat. Save left overs,if any, for crab spaghetti.
