Jesus take the wheel.....my goodnes, that looks amazing! I LOVE shrimp & grits, gonna make this one for sure.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 . View attachment 480835 View attachment 480836 View attachment 480837
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. View attachment 480840
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. View attachment 480842
Made up some cheesy grits. I used a aged white cheddar that I picked up at Aldi the other day. View attachment 480838
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.
