Crawfish are now available for pre-order every week!
These will not be graded and sized yet as we are still very early in the season.
All pre-orders must be picked up on Friday and we strongly encourage you to plan your boils for Friday as well! As a fair warning the crawfish are still not fully hard shell, so shelf life is minimum at best! In other words, these guys may not make it if you hold them until Saturday or Sunday! This should change as they get heartier later in the season.
How does this product come?
Pre-orders this year will be done only by the sack. Each sack will average about 34 pounds.
What is the price?
Price will change week by week. Every Monday on our website (
) the prices will be posted.
How much should I get?
Plan on ordering at least 2 to 3 pounds of crawfish per adult at your boil. Bigger eaters like myself, may need 4 to 5 pounds.
How do I purge them?
The golden rule with crawfish is that you must purge the little buggers to remove all the muck that comes with living down in the mud. To do this, right before boiling, pour the sack of crawfish in a small children's pool or ice chest, cover with one box of salt, and add enough water to just cover the crawfish. Gently stir for 3-4 minutes, drain, and then rinse the crawfish with a hose. While purging, throw away "floaters", which are dead crawfish. You don't want these going in your boil.
How to Pre-Order:
Pre-orders must be done either on Monday or on Tuesday.
and follow the prompts. Every pre-order must be paid for on the site to be locked in for a reserved bag. Every week we will order a little extra, but if you don't make this deadline we cannot guarantee that we will be able to fill your order.
Live Product Risk:
Keep in mind that this is a live product that has had a very rough year, and if this product is not taken care of it is very easy to lose. Groomer's is not responsible for any loss of product once it leaves our doors, so be sure to inspect your bags. We will pack your crawfish with ice for travel in either a cooler you provide or in our own boxes. Should you choose to store your mudbugs, keep them in a cool, moist environment. The best place is in a cooler with ice on the bottom, newspaper/paper towels to separate and damp newspaper or paper towels on top. Be sure to keep the lid cracked so they can breathe!
