We went on a camping trip for a sales pitch on the Chesapeake Bay. We did not plan on crabbing, but while fishing off the pier we managed to catch six good size crabs. I did not have a pot or seasoning for them, so I made do with what I had. This wasn't the best crab I ever had, but it was darn good for an out-of-the-hat try.
Get your grill fired up; you want it good and hot. Make two aluminum foil packs wrap around the craps, three crabs to each pack. My crabs were alive, this is not easy. If you put the crabs on ice, they will stay still, somewhat.

Layout lemon slices on the bottom of each pack. Next lay the crabs on top of the lemon slices, topped with the dry ingredients and lemon juice. Wrap foil tight and place on grill or over the campfire. Cook about 20 to 30 minutes, until the crabs are nice and pink, almost red. Let stand to cool a bit before eating.

Servings: 2
Preparation Time: 20-30 minutes
