    Smoked up some shrimp for New Year's Eve.  Got 2 pounds of 26's, shelled them and left the tails on.  Sprinked about 3 TBSP (a little too much) of a seasoning I got from winning a hockey game bet, that would normally be used in a crab cake recipe.  I didn't have anything else mixed up and this was the closest I had.  Put them in a bag to get acquainted with the rub for about 30 minutes.

    Got the $5 Smokey Mountain going with charcoal and hickory chips for the fast 20 minute smoke.  Temp got a little high (250 - wanted to be at 200), but checked them at 20 minutes and we looked good.

    Tasted great, although as I mentioned before, I had a little too much seasoning on them, but they had a good smoke flavor.  Served with seafood sauce, but they tasted fine without it.  Fortunately, not too many got eaten (only two of the four of us do seafood), so I have plenty for lunch salads this week.

    Sorry - no Q-view as I was crunched for time and didn't think about it.  Will definitely do these again with a better fit on the rub.

    Oh Al - you have shamed me into this.  OK - so it's not q-view, but it is the container with the remaining shrimps from the evening.  Hope this counts!

    We did two pounds worth, and since there were only two of us eating it, and other stuff equalled lefts.  Looking forward to my salad tomorrow.
