Cooking for a crowd has never been easier with this Low Country Boil recipe for a crowd!
Summer is here and at our house that means ALOTTA family gatherings, cookouts and parties!
Finding an easy recipe - (easy to make and easy on the wallet ) when feeding a crowd can be a challenge. This low country shrimp boil is the perfect dish to make when cooking for a crowd!
Almost all of the prep work can be done ahead of time which means no one gets stuck in the kitchen cooking for 10-20 people.
We cook our low country boil outside in a turkey fryer! So you can stand around with guests and drink a cocktail while you are cooking dinner! Win Win!

6 ears of corn cut into 3 pieces each
3lbs Shrimp - We used frozen detailed/deveined with tail on (bonus - I got them on sale for $4 each!)
If you have not tried Old Bay Cocktail Sauce, you are missing out!
