Smoked crab

I just got some wood pellets for smoking and got this fantastic idea of smoking crabs.  I saw these nice live crabs at the market.  My first crab was the French brown crab but since it was frozen, I didnt like the meat.   The smokiness was great though. 

Both crabs were first cooked and one of the crabs were opened before smoking.  I wanted to see if it made any difference to the taste between opening and not opening them.    There were a lot of crabs to choose from at the market.  I purposely picked crabs with softer shells as perhaps the smoke would penetrate better. 

The next step is tasting.   If they are both good, then maybe I can smoke hairy crabs.....
