Default Need new shrimp boil spices

Does anyone know of a shrimp boil product that is just a tad spicier than Zattaran's or Old Bay? Perhaps even a home recipe. Don't want them as spicy as some crawfish, but just a little spice would be nice.

I use less than an ounce in a gallon of water and add some Old Bay and boil potatoes and corn at the end sometimes to go along with a steak.

I always use Swamp Fire for the flavor and the heat but you can dilute it down more than recommended to knock the edge off the heat.

You could add a pinch of cayenne to the Zatarains. If you try it be careful or it will be too hot and spicy.

Cubs crawfish on 98 right before the lillian bridge florida side. They are a swamp fire dealer. Best price in town.

Add some Slap Yo Mamma cajun spice (from the red can not the yellow). It's pretty spicy so take her easy till you get it where you want it, I put this stuff on everything it's really good. You can pick it up for sure in that hot sauce store in the mall in Pcola, they have a ton of good stuff btw. And I know there are some stores like Publix that carry it as well.

* 1 on Slap Yo Mama......... that's wicked stuff. Use it on a lot of things including popcorn. Be careful and don't over-do it though.

Swamp Fire is good and hot. Take it from a Louisiana native. A friend of mine mixes Zatarains and Swamp Fire, half and half. Also, Zatarains makes an extra spicey mixture, although I haven't seen it in Florida. I just add red pepper to mine if I want them extra spicey.
