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.

Damn Travis. Now that looks freaking phenomenal! Also a big fan of Aldi products.
Thanks cowboy! Aldi has a lot of stuff I cant find anywhere else. Great selection of cheeses and one of the only places here that I'm guaranteed to find lamb.

Making this tonight for the family. One question, did you smoke this or grill? I think you mentioned indirect heat? I may just grill it in my smoker using real charcoal and some wood chips....but if y’all think that’s crazy, I’m open to suggestions. Really looking forward this this!

Absolutely.... I'm going to share the link that I base mine off of.
Recipe calls for 4oz of sharp cheddar...i use 6oz
It also calls for 2Tbls of heavy cream...i use 1/3 cup...i like them creamy and this seems to work well.
Here is the link.
