I was just down at South Padre Island last week and picked up some freshly caught large Gulf Shrimp. Decided to try this recipe out.
Cleaned, pealed and butterflied the shrimp.
I then sprinkled some rub on them, placed in zip lock bag and put in the fridge overnight.
Before the Cowboy game, I started to prep them. Here's the fixings (a little 1/2 cooked bacon, cream cheese mix and shrimp)
Got them all wrapped up and ready to go in the smoker
Put on the smoker, with the Cowboy game going on in the background.
After about 40 minutes, there were done. (I had to hurry to get this pic as the family was ready to dive into them)
This was the first time trying this and I would do a couple of things differently. One would be do spice up the cream cheese mix as it was kind of bland, even with marinating the shrimp with rub. I also used probably a couple too many wood chunks and the shrimp were a bit too smoky. Overall a good cook and they were good to eat while watching the disappointment of the Cowboy game.
