Not smoking, but grilling

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by influencer, Jun 3, 2013.

  1. Well technically I did smoke a little, but just quickly to get a little flavor. Invited my brother and his family over for dinner, had some fresh cut t-bones, shrimp skewers, grilled corn and mac & cheese. Put a little more fine tuning on the steak marinade and made a new marinade off the top of my head for the shrimp using what is commonly used on shrimp marinades as a base(olive oil, lemon juice).

    I broke the golden rule of smoking/grilling and didn't write down my recipe. As luck would have it, those were the best shrimp skewers I've ever eaten, which got a second, third, fourth and fifth nomination by my wife and brothers family.

    Guess this gives me a reason to get more shrimp and try again, see if I can duplicate the results and WRITE IT DOWN!

    Skewers consisted of potato, green pepper, vidalia onion, jumbo shrimp, carrot & broccoli.

    Sorry no q-views, having them over for dinner was a spur of the moment thing so everything was rushed to double the dinner, [​IMG]

    Hello. Here's a good Marinade to try and you can expand on it if you want , Garlic, Onion, Cumin , etc. :

     This a very good flavor and should help tenderize you Steaks.

    Thanks Tex I will give that one a try for sure !
  6. The steaks were amazingly tender, I have the recipe for the steak marinade, its the shrimp. Best. Darn. Shrimp. Ever.(IMHO). I have it narrowed down to a few spices, just gotta work out the combination and quantities again. 

    But I will give that dressing a try as well
