    Another Thursday & that means another day off from work. After the success I've enjoyed this summer with chicken wings & my first smoked shrimp I wanted to do both again today.

    It was 45 degrees, drizzly & we had wind gusts of about 35 mph, so I was hopeful my MES would cooperate. No problems. I put my chicken rub on my wings, & put them in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. Then I put them in my buttermilk brine for two more. After that, I took them out, applied a little more rub & popped them in.

    When the wings were first in the fridge, I went ahead & put my shrimp in a bag & added olive oil & my rub. I then put them in the fridge for a couple of hours. About 60-70 minutes after putting the wings in I went ahead & got my shrimp out, in the pan & sliced up a stick of butter to put in with them. I also gave them a light dusting of Cajun seasoning as well. Put them in then with the wings.

    The wings went about 2.5 hours, while I pulled the shrimp at the same time. I sauced my wings & stuck them under the broiler in the oven for about 5 minutes to caramelize the sauce & help crisp the skin. We REALLY like our wings like this. Dinner was excellent & I have some wings to take in my lunch tomorrow. And I ALWAYS keep a sauce there, too lol.

    Thanks Mike. Give'em a try, I don't think you will regret it.
    Thank you Rich. I just kind of did them how I did the first time regarding the butter, as it was pretty good before. I got a good marinade recipe for next time from Chef JJ, though.

    Thanks for the points!

    They turned out pretty good actually. So much so that I'm already thinking of doing them again soon. Thanks!
    Thank you OS, they were excellent! Appreciate the pernts. It was my second go 'round with shrimp & the wings have always been a favorite around this house. As far as the smoker goes, I hate to waste the space. I always try to do at least one side, but am guilty most times of not "fillin' her up" all the way lol. I also try to utilize certain "spots" in this thing & sometimes that will cost you space too. Thanks again for takin' a look, guys.

    That's Great !! [​IMG]

    It often depends on where the CSRs were cut from. Just thought I'd caution you on them.

    Might sound like a dumb question... but  Do you peel the shrimp before smoking them or not?

    Nice smoke TW.  I'm not big on wings, but the shrimp...............mmmmmm!!  I like the idea of cooking them in the pan with butter.  If you were to add a whole whack of garlic, you would have smoked scampi---love me some scampi!!!!
