Shrimp and grits is something ive always enjoyed but never made it myself. After searching the net ive noticed a lot of variations on the dish so figured I'd just make it my own.

Started out with some super colossal shrimp. Butterflied and stuffed with jalapeno cream cheese and wrapped in bacon. For the bacon I used some of the pre cooked stuff .

Placed them on a rack and dusted them with some BBQ rub. I used wannarub this time

I set the kettle up for indirect heat. Put on a couple chunks of smoked sausage first.

Shrimp is on. Only takes a few minuts for these.

The last few minutes I brushed on tome tiger sauce for a glaze. Then took them off the smoker. Total time was about 15min.

Made up some cheesy grits. I used a aged white cheddar that I picked up at Aldi the other day.

Then plated up. Grits down first...then some of the sausage cut up and the stuffed shrimp. It then got another dusting of rub and a drizzle of tiger sauce. Last some chives to garnish.

Fantastic looking dish here! I have a hard time with grits because of the texture. I would dive right into this though.

Yep....not completely cooked to crisp but into the microwave for a few seconds and its done... I swore I would never buy any but seemed like a good short cut on this cook and worked out good. The shrimp cooks so fast that the bacon would never get cooked unless you pre cook it some first.
