When my parents come up to visit, we love having this--it's our way of saying "thanks", because they always do so much for us when they come up (like this time when they helped install new floors.)

Seafood Boil

4 qts water
2-4 lbs crab, broken into pieces
2-4 lbs large shrimp, in shells
1 bag clams
2 lbs sausage, cut into 1” pieces
2 lbs new/small red potatoes or mediums qtrd
2 sweet onions, cut into wedges
4-6 cloves of garlic, smashed
2 lemons, sliced into rounds
4 ears corn, broken into several pieces each

Heat water over med-high. Add beer, sausage and potatoes and Old Bay, bring to a boil. Cover and cook 10 min. Add clams, crab, corn, lemon, garlic and onion. Cover and cook 15 min. Add shrimp, cook another 10 min, until clams open.
