Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 pound raw shrimp peeled, tail on
  • 2 tablespoons fresh garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter salted

Instructions

  • Preheat the smoker to 175-180 degrees F. You can go hotter if you want but this works just fine for us on a typical day.
  • Use a baking tray or aluminum pan for your shrimp. Place the raw shrimp in lines inside the pan.
  • Coat the raw shrimp with the melted butter and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste and pop them in the smoker.
  • When they’ve reached 145 F internal temperature they can come off. This usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour depending on how well insulated your smoker is and how windy it is outside. There’s no need to open the door, turn them, or check them really until the thermometer tells you they’ve reached our goal temperature!
