Ingredients:  
Crab Boil (enough for 3 gal of water) - preferably Zatarain's
2 lemons (quartered)
1 onion (quartered)
2 whole cloves of garlic
1 box of salt (Kosher)
5 lbs red potatoes (cut into bit size)
10 ears of corn (half or in thirds)
5-6 lbs Lg shrimp (21-25)
2-3 lbs of chicken strips
2-3 lbs of Andouille sausage (cut to bit size)

Directions:
Directions:
Bring water, crab boil, lemons, onions, garlic and salt to a boil (15-20 mins). Add potatoes and chicken mix well and cook for 10 mins. Add corn, mix well, cook for 2 mins. Add shrimp and sausage, turn off heat as soon as it comes to a boil again. Let sit for 5-10 mins before serving to let flavor soak in. Drain off water and dump food on table to serve.

I generally prep everything the night before, making one large bag of all ingredients ( I keep everything separated) for one pot. It makes it easier if you are making multiple pots; all you have to do is pour the items in when it is time.

Personal Notes:
We have done this recipe for the Special Olympics Golf Tournament for many years and has been a great hit. The sausage was added by me to add a kick to the flavor and taste. Works best on an outdoor burner, not sure if I have ever tried it on a stove top.
