Shrimp and Sausage Boil

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 10


  • 1/2 cup Shrimp & Crab Boil Seasoning - Dry seasoning not the liquid
  • 4 quarts water
  • 2 bottles (12 ounces) beer
  • 4 pounds baby red potatoes - washed well (if they are bigger, cut in half or quarters)
  • 3 pounds Johnsonville Smoked Rope Sausage - cut in 2 to 3 inch pieces
  • 10 ears corn on the cob - cut in thirds
  • 4 pounds large shrimp - deveined with shell on
  • melted butter
  • Seriously Good Cocktail Sauce
  • 4 lemons - cut in wedges


  • In a really big stock pot, bring water, seafood seasoning and beer to a boil.
  • Add potatoes. Cook over high heat for 8 minutes.
  • Add smoked sausage and corn and continue to cook for another 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add shrimp in shells and cook until shrimp turns pink, about 4 minutes.
  • Drain all cooking liquid.
  • Serve everything on a huge platter or even easier line a picnic table with a large plastic table cloth or butcher paper.
  • Then, dump the shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes in the center of the table.
  • Serve with warm, lots of warm melted butter, cocktail sauce, lemon wedges and loads of napkins or a few rolls of paper towels. It's messy but so fun!


A large outdoor turkey deep fryer works for doing this! Just boil the water and beer in it and add the rest. Keeps any mess outside! Love that!
