What's this?

For a quick and easy meal that will impress your guests, make these buttery Traegered Crab Legs.

Ingredients

  • 3 Pound crab legs, thawed and halved

  • 1 Cup butter, melted

  • 2 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 2 Clove garlic, minced

  • 1 Tablespoon Traeger Fin & Feather Rub or Old Bay Seasoning, plus more to taste

  • As Needed lemon wedges

  • As Needed Italian Parsley, chopped

Steps

  • 1

    If the crab legs are too long to fit in the roasting pan, break them down at the joints by twisting, or use a heavy knife or cleaver. Split the shells open lengthwise. Transfer to the roasting pan.
  • 2

    Combine the butter, lemon juice and garlic; whisk to mix. Pour mixture over the crab legs, turning the legs to coat. Sprinkle the Traeger Fin & Feather Rub or Old Bay Seasoning over the legs.
  • 3

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 4

    Cook the crab legs, basting once or twice with the butter sauce from the bottom of the pan, for 20 to 30 minutes (depending on the size of the crab legs) or until warmed through.
  • 5

    Transfer the crab legs to a large platter and divide the sauce and accumulated juices between 4 dipping bowls. Enjoy!
