    Had a bag of shrimp at home so decided what the heck and chose to smoke 'em last night.
    • 2 lbs. bag of raw 21/25 Peeled & De-veined shrimp
    • 1.5 T Smoked Paprika
    • 1 T Lemon Pepper
    • 2 tsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper
    • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
    • 1 T Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
    Tossed all items together then drizzled about 2 T Olive Oil and tossed again. Let sit while the Brinkmann electric smoker came up to temp.

    Added water to smoker and Apple Wood chunks.

    50 minutes later.....

    They were perfectly done. Made a little lemon vinaigrette to go with them and all I can say is that I can't wait to do them again this weekend. Had them on a salad last night and they were even better this morning after having spent the night in the fridge.

    Now, if only each one was bacon wrapped.  But seriously, very nice dish.  What temp did you smoke them at?

    Thanks and bacon is always a plus. Maybe next time.

    My electric smoker is a very basic 3 piece Brinkmann. It doesn't have a temp setting and no vent to control temps so it's usually somewhere in the 250 range. I "guestimated" on the timing based on some other folk's info on here and just knowing my own smoker.

    Hey those look good, and i have ruined a bunch trying to smoke 'em. Grilling is simple and good, but smoking them has eluded me. 1 1/2 hours at 250, I'll have to try that.

    Nice job.
