Recipe of the Month: Lo Country Boil

I was asked to cook up a pot of Lo Country Boil today for a group of 25!  I don't know if the temperature got over 40 today so it was some great comfort food to sit down to.  This was one batch:

4      T  Old Bay Seasoning
2     Cap fulls Zatarains liquid seasoning
1/2  Stick butter
8      lbs small red potatoes
3      16 oz smoked sausage (fully cooked)  cut into 1 inch pieces
4      Medium Onions quartered through root stem
10    Ears corn,  halved
2      Lemons  quartered
4      lbs shrimp

(This actually took  about 1hr 45 minutes from when fire was lit till done.  Maybe because it was so cold outside!)

Add water,  seasonings, butter,  to large pot of water filled half full .                                   
Bring to a rolling boil.
Add potatoes and sausage, lemons and cook   10-15  minutes                                               
Add Onions ,  cook  5 minutes                                                                      
Add corn,  cook    10 minutes                                                                                                    
Add Shrimp,  cook 3-5 minutes.  Don’t overcook                                                                

Drain and serve.
