I am thinking crawdads will turn out like lobster and shrimp that I have tried. Rubber. Much better boiled or cooked over high heat.

Wow, does this bring back memories...

When I was a kid in Tennessee in the early 70's, we would go down to the creek and catch crawdads. Then go to a flat rock, put some dried grass/straw/whatever on the rock, toss on the mud bugs, light the grass, add more grass on top and when the fire was out, we'd eat 'em! I guess that was my first experience smoking food! Very Happy

So, I would suggest grilling indirect with a wood chip packet on your coals.

Sounds kinda like my childhood, except we wouldn't cook what we caught we would use'm for bait! Bass love crawdad's.

I do have and idea I want to try but not sure just yet how to go about it, but given enough info on this subject I'll figure it out. I need to fine some frozen crawdad's firs then go from there. No where in north Alabama can you find live one's that I know of, well except a bait shop but those are to small!

TMB, if you can find a nice, clean, cold spring, you will find crawdads. At least here, you will. The bigger the spring, the bigger the crawdads. Make a trap, throw some ole stinky chicken parts (from your next smoke), in there and it is chow time. I cook mine in Zateran's (sp?) crab boil. Good Stuff Exclamation

Edit: I suck the heads too. Rolling Eyes

I just posted a Crawfish Bisque recipe.
It isn't grilled, but it IS good.

off the top of my head, soak some corn husks in salt water and line a wire grill box, the kind some people use on trout. spread out the bugs and grill till done, worth a shot
