Cooking Crabs - Whitey Schmidt

A couple in Buzzy's Country Store yesterday were excited about having been down to Pt. Lookout State Park where they caught "a mess of crabs" and couldn't wait to get home to steam 'em up and eat 'em. 

It reminded me of something Brady sent me just last week on Whitey Schmidt author of several crab recipe books:


Brady noted that he had met Whitey down at Dennis Edwards' several years ago. Whitey took some photos there that he later included in one of his books.  Brady also noted that Whitey told how he comes up with his new crab recipes by first testing them out on his friends at a local country store to get their reactions.  Sounds to me like Whitey knew what he was doing.  For a good article on him   (click here.)

Found this when I went looking for crab-related videos.
