Smoked Shrimp anyone?
 
I`ve been bouncing around an idea in my head for some time now to Q shrimp. I just got them injected (in the shell) and marinating now for tomorrow`s burn. They`re size 12 shrimp. I`m thinking of keeping them high in the Bandera for lower temps and more smoke. Temps should be around 200. I`m guessing an hour or so to cook`em?

Anyone with experiance in this?

What did you inject them with? Marinate?
I've never smoked shrimp, but I grill them all the time.

I wouldn't do it.

Bash I story about the shrimp is a classic.

Shrimp are all lean - they cook fast and get terribly tough if overcooked. Even boild or steamed they'll go rubbery on you in a hurry.

I grill them.

Speaking of shrimp: I think a small shrimp boil is in order for tonight. A little Old Bay, some potatoes, perhaps an onio, some corn, and the guests of honor!

I'm so frigging hungry right now after talks of
grinders and Portillos that everything sounds
wonderful - even smoked shrimp bombs.

I'll wait for Phil to post the recipe, but it had crab meat stuffed in there with bacon and more. Tasted like smoked chit. so we put it on the grill to crisp it up a bit. now it was crispy chit. Then we smothered in Blues Hog, that was the birth of the bash bite on the front page: "Raspberry Cumin Chit"

I marinate a 32oz bag for 2 hours in butter, soy sauce, teriyaki and honey (melted together then cooled) then smoke for 1 hour at 225 (my wife never eats shrimp but she loves these)

All Ill say is DONT!

Grill em.
absorb smoke like a sponge and your eating soot. If anything, go high temps and cookem fast. Will post good recipe later after work.

I agree with Phil, hot and fast, don't over cook them. We are talking almost no time at all on the grill.

Over cooked shrimp suck (rubber mod). Cook them over some nice hot wood coals on the grill side of the 'dera. IMO you'll wreck some really nice shrimp in the smokebox.

heres a recipe. Courtesy Dave Klose.

Need big shrimps, chicken tenderloins, finely chopped crabmeat and some room temp bacon. Pound the tenderloins flat and very thin, cut them into pieces just big enuf to wrap a shrimp in.

marinade chicken and shrimp in red wine, coke, cayenne pepper, fresh garlic for about an hour.

split the shrimp up the back, not all the way thru, but enuf so you can stuff some crabmeat in it.

stuff the crabmeat in the back, wrap the chicken around the entire shrimp and wrap that in baccon.

skewer and grill brushing often with the marinade. (heat the marinade to kill the coodies).

Variation, a crabmeat stuffing of your choice. I also added some cheese just becase i didnt thing the caloric value was high enough. :twisted:


Grill them till the bacon is cooked, but be careful not to overcook the shrimp. Works well on a kettle with the lid closed, but cracked on the side so u still get high heat.

did this at bash I but smoked them instead of grilling. They sucked. Was like eating Kingsford. We tried rescuing them by grilling and covering them with sauce but then they tasted like grilled sauced sucky shrimp.

Have grilled and smoked shrimp before. Grill ...YES.....Smoke......FOR THE LOVE OF GOD......DON'T DO IT. Shrimp is too expensive to waste on the smoker.

I always thought thin, delicate cut/types of meat do not do well on smoker, but great for grill. Thicker {roasting type} meat thrives on smoker.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Rest of the pix after the cook.

Toss them babies on the grill till they turn pink and sit back to enjoyl.

Just to clarify, it was Bash 1, not 2.

And the proper bite was: Smells like an arm pit, tastes like dirt
