  5. sprinkle them crabs with old bay seasoning, whole bunch
  6. cover steamer
  7. let em cook for 30-40 minutes until it looks like cooked crab from red lobsters
  8. done
Crabs have to be alive. duh
Either keep them cool in sea water or over ice
If they in sea water they will expel the sand from themselves over time
if they in fresh water, they will get mushy from osmosis
