Quick Smokey Shrimp Kebabs

Shrimp is always a favorite and when you add a touch of smoke it becomes even more special. Shrimp doesn't take much time at all in the smoker to absorb flavor. To make meal prep even quicker, use pre-cooked frozen shrimp for your next kebab extravaganza. Just be careful not to over-smoke or over-cook the shrimp. A few minutes in the smoker and a few minutes on the grill is all it takes for this visually impressively and tasty meal.

Smokehouse Wood Chips (Apple or Alder)


2 tablespoons olive or canola oil

1 clove pureed garlic

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon cumin

2 tablespoons orange juice

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon white rice or vinegar

1 tablespoon soy sauce

In a medium bowl, mix all glaze ingredients until thoroughly combined.

(Vegetables and fruit can also be marinated in the glaze, double the recipe if using as a glaze and a marinade.)


Prepare Little Chief Smoker or Big Chief Smoker by filling with wood chips. Always make sure clean foil lines the smoker pan to avoid off-flavors. Plug smoker in and pre-heat until chips begin to smoke.

Remove shrimp from marinade and place on teflon screens atop smoker racks. Place shrimp in smoker and smoke 10-15 minutes.
