Would that work just as well to just ad the crab meat. When I eat crab I like to clean the whole thing first.. then eat.

I've never had one of those funny looking "round" crabs. I was meaning to get some last time I was there, but never got around to it.

Joanie,

That looked delicious, I wouldn't have minded being one of "your folks". I could have eaten your portion. :D I've pondered moving near the Northcoast just to be closer all the good cookin'. As always, thanks for sharing on You Tube

Thanks, guys. You are welcome.
The cc is best made with parts rather than pieces, Dan. If you add picked pieces they tend to break down more quickly. Besides, the best part for folks is getting messy and sucking out that succulent meat in the legs. If you want to make Ciopinno, that generally includes some other types of seafood such as a firm white fish, shrimp, clam, etc. then you could probably put in the pre-picked stuff, but part of the flair pf my folks version is to have the crab in shell parts in the crab ciopinno. We cooked them that meal as part of their Christmas present......had to find something they really need, but spending quality time with 'em and eating good are some of the best presents we can give each other.

Joan,

The dish looked so delicious. The only problem is that it made me hungry for crab and I am iced and snowed in today.

You guys did an excellent job with your video...Cooking Channel, move over! There are some new chefs in town.

Thank you, Todah......I like to joke that Dean & I are the Bobby Flay & Rachel Ray of Outdoor Cast Iron cooking now.... :lol:

As for the crab, we've had a fluke of warm weather here for the past few weeks, so the season has been good for crabbing. My brother went out and got some recently, but you have to take advantage of the weather and the limited season.....you could always go try it with ..... sheesh..... canned crab meat, or "snow crab", but this recipe was especially created for the fresh meat.

Stay tuned for more as this weekend is our local Dutch Oven Society (FDOS) kickoff for the new year and we'll be cooking/filming as well.
