4 fresh cobs of corn, cut into 3-inch chunks

4. Cover the crockpot and  cook on Low heat setting 4-5 hours.

 

5.  Add sausage and corn, cover and cook 2 hours longer.

 

6.  Increase heat setting to HIGH and add  in your shrimp. Your crockpot will be very full, so do your best to stir a little and squeeze your shrimp in :)  Cover and cook 30-40 minutes or until shrimp are pink.

My husband and son both love shrimp and I don't. When I make it I just eat the corn, potatoes, and kielbasa. My son loves that he can eat everything off the middle of the table with his hands,lol.

Same - something like rib chunk may be a good fun substitute?
