Smoked Little Necks on the Weber

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Decided to do some Little Neck Clams on the Weber today.

 

 

 

 

I used Pecan wood for the smoke.

 

Made a sauce to dip them in

- White Wine

- Butter

- Garlic

- EVOO

- Fresh Parsley.

 

They were great (my 5 year old ate over half of them)

 

Smoke ON!

Awesome! Points for a cool unique post. Any shots of finished food in sauce? I've heard you cook until shells open quarter inch?

Thanks!

Yes, you cook them until they open about 1/2 way.  We just dip them in the sauce, I carefully transfer them to keep the liquid from inside the shell from spilling out,then dip in the sauce.

Sounds like a good way to spend a Sunday afternoon....man when my second is born my wife will be going after me to get this one done! You have her upset, I've never thought of this before. I quote her exact words "you're telling me you could have done that for me?"

It is super easy... 

 

- Rinse the clams

- Inspect to make sure none are cracked or already open (I am a pain at the store, I make them show me every one before putting in the bag)

- Fire up your weber/smoker/grill

- Toss on some wood 

- Make the sauce

 

My recipe

- 1/4 stick of butter

- 1 cup white wine

- 4 TBS EVOO

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 tsp salt

- 1 tsp onion powder

-  Dash of pepper

-  5-10 Parsley leaves torn

 

In a small pot over med heat, add butter, stir gently as it melts, after it has melted add the rest of the seasonings except the parsley, stir in olive oil.

Let it sit on a low simmer for about 10 minutes, stir in wine and let the wine cook down.  leave on light simmer while you cook your clams.

 

When you are ready, stir in the parsley and you can either pour the mixture over the clams or dip the clams in the sauce while you eat them.  Another method is to cut up some bread, butter and brown on your grill while cooking the clams.  Use the bread to dip in the sauce and top with a clam.

 

Smoke ON!
