3/4 cup (6 ounces) Chesapeake-style seafood seasoning
8 lemons, 4 thinly sliced, 4 wedged for condiments
1 large yellow onion, sliced in rings and separated
1 large bell pepper (any color) sliced lengthwise in 1/2-inch strips
5 pounds red potatoes, scrubbed and halved, if necessary, to make no larger than 4-inch circumference
1 1/2 pounds smoked sausages, cut into 3-inch lengths and browned
2 pounds medium unshelled shrimp, deheaded and rinsed
8 small ears of corn, halved
1 pound drawn butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups seafood cocktail sauce


Fill a 5-gallon crab pot 3/4 full with hot water; add Chesapeake-style seafood seasoning and the 4 sliced lemons, and bring to a rolling boil. Add onion, pepper, and potatoes and boil for 20 minutes. Add sausage and boil an additional 20 minutes. Add shrimp and corn and allow to boil for 4 minutes, then turn off heat and leave for an additional 5 minutes in the water. Drain the entire mixture and ladle all items into 1 or 2 very large serving bowls. Serve immediately with butter and cocktail sauce.

Note: Chesapeake seafood seasoning is a regional specialty used in everything from seafood dishes to poultry and vegetables. The two most famous brands are Old Bay Seasoning and Wye River Seasoning.
