That sounds great. I grew up in Michigan (Saginaw) but then worked in Baltimore, San Francisco, and now Seattle. I grew to love crabs in Baltimore, so I think I'll pick up some here for our next camping trip and do just what you are doing! And in Baltimore, we steamed them just as you describe, not like the boiling that is popular with the bigger crabs here. As a salute to the NW, maybe I'll bring the smoker along and throw in some salmon... Like I said, I'm hungry!
