    Hi, The seasoning sound yummy enough but I found it odd that a recipe called BBQ Crab Legs doesn’t have me going near the BBQ?

  2. Katie Lee Turner says:

    How long to boil? I keep finding comments anywhere from 5-10 minutes and I don’t want undercooked crab!

  3. Tonya Evans says:

    If you ever had the real deal, you’d know it’s not exactly BBQ sauce. It’s the seasoning that creates the “flavor.” You also don’t cook the legs on an actual grill but I am sure you could, or broil your legs (I prefer crab legs to be broiled and not boiled or steamed. too slimy for me)

  4. Joecrabshack says:

    Not true on that comment about bbq sauce being “just a flavor combo.” I worked there and they actually use special bbq sauce seasonings and flash fry the crab. This recipe is completely wrong. Old bay is only used on regular crab legs.
