Re: Crab/Lobster Pot Options (cooking, not catching)

You dont need no stinking pot for lobster! Not Spinys anyway. They are delicious on the grill. 😆

Ive never tried grilling crabs, but grilled oysters are also delicious.

If you want to do a proper crab & seafood boil...well, then you need a big ass pot...ideally on a big propane burner ashore.

Heh, you and your shallow, warm seas.

Maybe someday I'll be snorkeling with a lobster bag at my side...

Never tried grilling a cold water lobster, but it should work the same.

Not as much fun to catch though...just a hook stick, snorkel gear, and optionally a bag (I just usually toss them in the dinghy) is all you need here. 😎

I suppose a cold water lobsta you could just remove the tail and claws and just put them in a pot to make more room?

Re: Crab/Lobster Pot Options (cooking, not catching)

I've been canning for quite some time, some not so accurate info has been posted. Here is the USDA link

National Center for Home Food Preservation | How Do I? Can Meats

At less than 1000 ft elevation meat should be canned at 10 psi. I can't imagine that canning at 15 psi would present a hazard as long as processing times are adhered to, but, the textures may suffer.

Happy canning!

reread the pressure for a weighted pressure canner not a dial unit.
( for clarification most of my families canning was not done at sea level. )
also the book I quoted is just under a hundred years old and was printed by the ball canning company. Things seem to have gotten more relaxed as to specs since the printing in 1927.
My apologies.

Re: Crab/Lobster Pot Options (cooking, not catching)

Wound up getting another pressure cooker--a 21qt Granite Ware Pressure Canner that fits perfectly over the two burners, with room for the pot restrainers. Love it.

Big enough to pressure can a real batch of food, or cook a real batch of food, or heat a lot of water, or have a real low country boil :-). The smaller presto can barely fit half-pints and is more a pressure cooker.

I revamped my cooking when we first started traveling by vehicle a few years ago, and the process turned out to be a pleasurable hobby. Adapting again is equally fun!
