It really isn't hard to season a 2nd batch if you know what you are doing
the issue isnt the 2nd batch. it is the 3rd and 5th and 10th batch of the day. Hence the different procedures.

ive seen commercial rigs boil in clean water then transfer to room temp seasoned water for the soak. (I think sammys did this too). i have seen placed that "steam" them in 4-5 fingers of water that contain the same amount of seasoning as you would put in a full pot. Then they come out a few seconds after it reached boil and put in an ice chest to finish cooking.

and ill tell you if im cooking for more then 3 sacks and need them out quick, and i dont have 3 pots. i can get a ton of crawfish out at 15 min intervals with 1 pot and 3-4 ice chests.

I've seen a few caterers do it.

Almost all catering companies do it. If you are cooking large volumes of crawfish and want consistency, you must do it.

I will say they peel easier, rather than letting them soak after they boil

The fact that Jordy lumped all of Acadiana Together as crawfish “dusters” is a joke.

Crowley just happens to be a hotbed for crawfish farms

Anytime a crawfish farmer (or anybody from that area) invites me to a boil, I’m there. Even if they use the dusting method, the quality of crawfish more than makes up for it

New Orleans et al typically gets shite crawfish to work with in comparison unless they have good sources

For one sack I put about 1/3 a pot of water and a bottle of liquid boil. Once that's boiling I add the crawfish and cover. When I see steam coming out of the pot I time for 2 minutes. I then add to an ice chest and put a box of tony's more spice, a jar of jalepenos, and some lemon juice. I then close the chest, shake well, and let sit for about 15 minutes. They peel really easy.

Notes from one of my boils this spring. They were good.

11.55 lbs potatoes, Bag of baby carrots,8 onions, pack of mushrooms, 6 garlic heads, lb of Hillshire sausage,

Boil a sack at a time. Add to water:
2 busted boil bags (3-4 is better)
16 oz liquid boil
Zatarains Crab Boil Jug boil 3 lb 5 Oz LBS.
Lemon juice 8 oz
1/2 salt carton
6 garlic heads sliced in half.
1/2 jar cayenne
Jar of chopped jalapeños
4 oz vegetable oil.

11:50 Flame start
12:20 garlic pods sliced in half and dumped in.
12:22 Drop Crawfish
12:32 back to rolling boil.
Turned down heat. 7 minutes low boil.
Let soak 20 mins. (Should have been longer and just wait till they sink in the water. )
1:00 Pour crawfish in an old or styrofoam ice chest (Most plastic ice chests will warp.) with a helper simultaneously pouring Tony’s and a whole Worcester bottle 16. Close the lid and do not open for 20 mins at least, while veggies boil.

Add 3/4 carton salt and 1/3 jar liquid crab boil.
1:06- 11.55 lbs potatoes, 8 onions
1:14 carrots, sausage and
1:20 corn and mushrooms
1:30 turn off fire
Pour on veggies on table then dump the crawfish on top.

Who has trouble peeling crawfish ever? You don't have to peel that first shell ring.

Lol try most places west of the basins and most catering companies and most crawfish restaurants that serve large volume.

And most people aren't dumping straight Tony's in the ice chest. It's usually a blend seasoning that's designed to melt good in the ice chest.

We season water and bring to boil and drop crawfish , after they come back to boil time for 4 minutes . Kill fire and soak for 15 minutes . Take bugs out and put in large ice chest . Dust lightly with slap yo mama and sit for 10 minutes . Drink another white can and serve . Works every time .

Who is Jordy? Serious question.

But if he lumped all of Acadiana together as the place where everyone dusts, then he's ignorant.

Just wet your finger stick in the dust and lick it off. Pouring all over the crawfish don't do shite to flavor the crawfish tail. It just make the shite far more messier and burn the outside of your lips. If you want it spicer learn how to properly season the water

You don't just pour it over the crawfish, ding dong. The spice penetrates when they are steaming in the ice chest.
