Best to go grid on fire ring or raised? And how hot?

    Just not long...maybe on skewers. I'd go lemon and butter in a CI skillet.

  • I've done them grid on the fire ring with a perforated pan or dish at 400 for about 4 min. per side with internal temp at 145 for the scallops.  Shrimp half that time or until they pink up.  Agreed with @henapple on the skewer.  They are a pain to turn individually.

    I plan on EVOO, coat in Italian bread crumbs and pour lemon butter sauce over it after grilling. Just wasn't sure the method of grilling I should use i.e. temp, grid height, smoke(if any) etc. I have one of those perforated grilling pans I could use, could do them in a CI as well.  I had planned on skewers just on the grid unless something else works better.  I've got some very large jumbo shrimp and some very large scallops.

    Yakatori style.  Direct, raised grid, skewers suspended across bricks.  Soak the skewers and bunch up the food.

    huh, does that change the cook time much?

    No, but it raises them a bit more from the flame and takes them off the grid.

    Not an answer to your question but it should help.

    Thanks, had no idea. Mine came from Kroger and I have no idea if they are "wet" or "dry" I'll know to ask next time

    I'm thinking I'll put the scallops on first and go for a few minutes before I put on the shrimp. Pics later(unless I really screw it up :D)

    Turned out pretty good. The lemon butter sauce was awesome, went well with the garlic mashed potatoes.  The scallops lost some of the breading because of the thin layer of ice coating they still had on them.  Not sure why I didn't just break it all off, oh well. The wife said it was as good as Carrabba's Spiedino de Mare (she loves Carrabba's so it was a compliment :D)  Very enjoyable meal. Thanks for the tips.  imageimageimageimage
