Choosing the right Crawfish Paddle
If you are familiar with boiling crawfish, you know that you need a crawfish boil paddle. Whether you choose to use a wooden crawfish paddle, or aluminum crawfish paddle, is all on preference. Both do the same job, the only difference is cleaning after the boil. Large wooden stirring paddles are cheaper than a stainless steel paddle. A wooden stir paddle costs $10 less than an aluminum or stainless crawfish stir paddle.
Whichever crawfish paddle you decide to buy, be sure to clean them thoroughly after each use to remove the salt. This practice will keep your boil paddle around for years to come.
