BBQ Shrimp- Cold Smoke Technique

We are going to show the versatility of cold smoke techniques by infusing smoke into some raw shrimp that have been marinated in BBQ sauce. I’m using SmokinLicious® Sugar Maple Minuto® Chips in Size 8. In addition to the smoker and chips, you will need to place your marinated shrimp in a bowl covered with plastic wrap or in a food storage bag, and a lighter. Get ready, for a fun, quick way to fabulous smoked BBQ shrimp, in an instant!

Tip-Using a bag and the smoker unit to infuse the flavor

Tip-Using a bag and the smoker unit to infuse the flavor

So simple to do, cold smoke generators let you direct the smoke just where you want. I’ve taken my uncooked shrimp and marinated them overnight in my favorite BBQ sauce. Any sauce will do whether homemade or store bought. I set up my Gourmia® Mini Smoker with Size 8 Minuto® Wood chips from SmokinLicious®, inserting the smoker’s tubing directly into my marinade bag. I seal the bag around the tubing, turn on the smoker, and light the wood chips. As soon as I see the smoke start to the fill the bag, I turn the smoker off, pull the tubing out, and seal the bag completely.



BBQ Shrimp- Fun to Do, Tasty Results!

You can leave the smoke sealed in the bag until you are ready to cook the shrimp. Any method of cooking will do – in the pan, baked in the oven, on the grill – whatever your pleasure! So much flavor you will think you just smoked for hours on a traditional smoker. Unlock your imagination and get smoking with SmokinLicious® and Gourmia®!
