Not trying to be a jerk here, but it may come off that way. But here it goes........
I live in Charleston, South Carolina and have been watching the demise of the shrimping industry, here and the whole US. WE must buy wild caught...U.S. SHRIMP!.Not just for the sake of the shrimpers, but for OUR OWN HEALTH!
The post that started out with "THE SHRIMP BOATS IN" then goes on to say that the shrimp was bought from Costco and frozen at that. That shrimp never saw a boat....it was raised in filthy ponds that have chicken coops over them.....you are eating shrimp that is fed chicken S@#T.
ASLO.........there is nothing finer than SWEET local shrimp dusted with your favorite rub and cooked on a BGE! I usually just get a cast iron pan piping hot, throw some cherry wood in the EGG......garlic butter and then throw a bunch of local shrimp in the pan.....close the top (for concentrated smoke....as the shrimp will only be in the EGG for a couple of minutes....DO NOT OVER COOK! One thing about the EGG....it even makes that tasteless,tainted stuff from Asia taste good.
Sorry about that rant....but, I've watch a bunch of shrimpers go out of biz......IT'S even tough to get LOCAL reataruants to serve LOCAL shrimp. I know it's all about size and uniformity, but I think taste and quality should be a factor as well. Good eatin', Paul
