    When I used to help a local seafood business cook crabs on weekends, the steam generator was almost instantaneous and the steam so hot that a bushel only took 15 minutes. Most crab houses use that kind of setup too. Or used to.
    even with big steam, 20-25 minutes of cooking time I thought was the norm. Two longtime friends, one a steamfitter and one a boilermaker, and myself having some electrical skills have spent more than an afternoon or two at Capt. Billy's, Robertsons, Port Tobacco and Shymansky's trading services for beer and sometimes even food Would have liked to marry into the Shymansky family but she loves that cop.....
