Surf & Turf on the Drum

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
I did a reverse sear on some ribeyes, smoked some king crab legs and twice baked potatoes in my drum...

The ribeyes were rubbed with olive oil, then seasoned with cracked black pepper and kosher salt.

I smoked the steaks for about an hour before adding the crab legs and stuffed potatoes..

Seared the steaks over a flame for about 6 minutes per side...

sprinkled the tatoes with crisp bacon and served garlic butter with the crab legs...

Thanks for checking out my supper. :)

That is one of m favorites meals. The wife and I cook crab legs everyone once in a while. They are awesome. We just put them in the microwave but I have been wanting to do some on the smoker.

It's got to be one of my favorites too! :) Since the legs are already cooked, I just put them in the smoker long enough to warm through and absorb some of the smokey flavor. (about 30 minutes)
they are soooo good. PDT_Armataz_01_12.gif

I love reading your posts, each one looks better than the last, and I always think that the new one is the best until the next one comes along. Great Job.

That looks awesome !!! I need to get some nice legs like those. I prefer lobster, but sometimes I get sick of it. Crab will be a nice change.points.gif

Thank you Pandemonium, RdKnB, Geert, BearCarver, Rstr, and Meateater!

Hhookk... I would have shared! biggrin.gif

Mossy, I really like the way my drum exhaust works. The smoke/heat rises evenly around the food before exiting. I got the design from this forum ... it's been a few years since I built it.
The air intake idea came from BBQ Bubba.. I had used it on my smokehouse firebox and really liked it...so I used it on the drum.
The exhaust holes idea came from either Tim ( cajun 1 ) or Invader Q...they were both very helpful with the drum design.

I'm really happy with the way it works. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Thanks again friends!

Looks great!

One question. When you do the crab, do you smoke from frozen, or thaw them out first?

The classic steak and crab always makes for a wonderful meal. You always do a fine job, well done!

Thank you AK1! I smoked them from the thawed out stage. I suppose they would work frozen but I've not tried it that way.

Jim, thank you so much and thank you for the points. biggrin.gif

Thank you lu1847, I appreciate it. biggrin.gif

I would have shared if you lived closer. :)
