Fried BBQ Shrimp

Fried BBQ Shrimp

My father-in-law is a huge fan of fried shrimp. The last time he came to visit we decided to dust off the deep fryer and make some fried shrimp. We started with some fresh shrimp, dredged them in egg wash and coated them with bbq rub seasoned bread crumbs. The results were fantastic!  The tastiest shrimp that I have ever had!

1st Annual Smithfield BBQ Classic

Smithfield BBQ Classic

The 1st Annual Smithfield BBQ Classic was one of the best BBQ contests that I have ever been to!  The location, the guinea pig style competition and the company of Smithfield were all great.  The town of Smithfield is charming and the Smithfield staff were hospitable and amazing!  Arlie Bragg and Big Poppa Smokers put on a great competition. I mentioned before that this competition was a guinea pig competition.  This means that all of the teams received their meat from the organizer (Amazing Smithfield Prime pork and a Snake River Farms Wagyu Brisket).  Yep, everyone started with the same meat.  I love this concept.  It also included a Kids Que contest (Liam competed) and a delicious pot luck dinner the night before the competition.

Spicy Barbecue Buffalo Wings

Spicy Barbecue Wings

I love chicken wings! I love them so much that I purchase wings in bulk.  You can never have too many wings.  In my opinion the best way to cook a wing is over an open flame on the grill.  That way you get crispy skin and that smokey caramelized flavor that you can not get with any other form of cooking.  I always get asked how to make a spicy barbecued wing.  Well this is the simplest way to do it.  This recipe is a simple way to make any of your favorite barbecue sauces shine as a wing sauce.
