  1. Was just wondering what type of wood do you use to smoke shrimp. I have always used hickory or oak, to do chicken or beef . Thought would try shrimp

    I like a sweeter wood like apple or cherry but anything that you normally like will work. How are you thinking about doing the shrimp?

    Shrimp take such a short time that I think a stronger wood would be more appropriate. I like hickory.

    Never smoked shrimp yet but, I had mesquite smoked shrimp at a steak house and they were awesome. I think they just had a light smoke to them.

    Chef,if you can get Cherry,it is great on seafood;if you can't get any down there,I would be willing to trade something.I find good Cherry up here all the time,and the price is good.If interested,PM me and we'll talk.

    I used peach the last time!!

     Here....take a look!!!!!!  

    Have a great day!!


    IMO, just the smoke from peach has one of the most delectable aromas. Peach smoke ranks right up there with Hoppe's 9 for good smells in my book. 'Course, I don't think that cooking with Hoppe's 9 would be such a good idea.
