Default Smoked homegrown shrimp

I have been asked to post a bit about my shrimp....If this is not allowed, please move or delete this thread. Thank you!

I stock my pond with 30 day old juvenile shrimp that have been hatched in salt water and introduced to fresh....




I feed them a sinking catfish feed ....






I harvest them in the fall....




Here are some of them marinading in a mixture of evoo, sherry, garlic and some of my smoked seasoned salt.



I like to wrap them in bacon...



I smoked them with olive wood on my horizontal pit along with some shrimp, garlic, onion, cream cheese stuffed ABTs






And made a chipotle dipping sauce, but they were good without the sauce...



What I do not use while harvesting, I freeze for use until next harvest. It's been working out great for me.

How cool would that be to be sitting at home wondering what to have for dinner, how 'bout some shrimp?, OK, let me go get the net and scoop some up. Dang!

haha. I hate the term 'pron', but it is darn funny in this context.

There is always something new around here.

Thanks Brauma and Rick!
I love gulf shrimp but do not have access to good fresh gulf shrimp here, so this is my solution. I have tried "store bought" freshwater shrimp and found them to be a bit soft in texture.
I do not notice a difference in my fresh out of the water shrimp and gulf shrimp.
They take marinades and rubs really well and are great on the smoker or grill.
