Just chuck it in whole, you remove the parts you don't need afterwards, and after 10-13 mins boiling remove it drain it it and place in the fridge for best results...

I agree and use seasoning like you use with shrimp and half a lemon squeezed in the water.  If you peel or break them all the good juice & flavor will run out and not be as flavorful.  Always cook whole & clean when eating them.
Using a sharp pointerd knife stab/cut between the eyes to pentatrate the brain area. This will kill the cray. Then cook whole  gray as usual.
