Bring 2 gallons of water to a boil in a very, very large pot over high heat. Add the onions and squeeze the lemons into the water then drop in the rinds. Stir in the garlic, crab boil seasoning, hot sauce, salt, peppercorns and cayenne. Let this mixure boil for 10 minutes.
Drop in the potatoes and boil for 15 minutes, then add the corn. Return the water to a boil and add the crabs. Cook for 5 more minutes, then remove the pot from the heat source.
For the classic serving method, line a table (such as an outdoor picnic table) with layers and layers of fresh newspaper. Drain the pot and then dump the hot corn, potatoes and crab onto the paper. Serve with melted butter, if you like.
