Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Low Country Boil originated in the low country of South Carolina, around Charleston. It is often served on heavy brown paper or even newspaper for ease of cleanup.

If you like it spicy, you can use more Old Bay seasoning and/or can serve with a hot sauce on the side.
