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


3 lb Crab Legs, Thawed and halved

1 cup Butter, Melted

2 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice

1 Tbsp Traeger Fin & Feather rub or Old Bay Seasoning, plus more to taste

2 cloves Garlic, Minced

1 large Disposable Aluminum Foil Pan

Lemon Wedges, for serving

chopped flat leaf italian parsley, to garnish


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. Transfer to the roasting pan.

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.

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

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 cooked through.

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

*Cook times will vary depending on set and ambient temperatures.
