    We have shrimp alot, here's what we do. Marinate the 21-25 count size peeled and deveined, tails on shrimp from Costco, in 1/4 cup EVOO, along with 1 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp. granulated garlic, 1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper and 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper. Mix this all together, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Skewer on pre soaked skewers and cook at 325-350 for approximately 2 minutes a side, until opaque in color. Nice little kick from the peppers.

  • Appetizer(s):
    1.) Moink Balls:
    2.) ABTs:
    3) Drago's-Style Chargrilled Oysters:

    (there are MANY variations to #1 & #2 listed above - do a more thorough search & you should find MANY different variations you can try, or use ingredients that you know you & your family will like & modify it for you!!)

    1.) Personally, my favorite (and best) cooks so far have either been a combo hot tubbed / Trex steak w/ DP's Raising the Steaks or Cowlick rub (depending on whether you want a Montreal Style or not), or the recent pork spare ribs I just did.

    Best of luck, and take lots of pics!!

    Jalapenos, chillies, and cubanellas.  You need a pepper rack.  Core and remove the pulp and seeds.  Stuff with pepperoni and grocery store "Mexican cheese" mix.  I top off with a funnel made with the pepperoni and a cap of cheese.  I lock the cap in with a tooth pick.  For the Cubanellas you can use a wedge of Jack.  Chorizo is also good to use.  Use indirect heat and cook at 300 or less for about 25 minutes.  You can also wrap in bacon, but that increases the cook time.  They come out hot, and have juices inside so be careful.  The jalapenos are the hottest, but they all can be spicy and it varies from pepper to pepper.
