During the process of evaluating Lucky Dog Hot Sauce I did a cook on the Weber Jumbo Joe that turned out great; delicious, easy and impressive looking. So here we go with Surf and Turf on the Weber Jumbo Joe!!
I started with a pound of peeled shrimp (21 count). I poured two tablespoons of Lucky Dog Hot Sauce (Red Label) over the shrimp, mixed well and refrigerated for an hour. I ended up putting these on skewers right before grilling.
I got the Weber Jumbo Joe set up with a load of hot coals taking up a little more than half the charcoal grate. I seasoned some Flanken cut beef ribs with a little salt and pepper and put them onto the hot side of the grill. It is tough to find this cut of beef rib but if you do they are worth buying. The Flanken cut is essentially a thin cut ribeye steak with a little bone attached.
I let the ribs go about three minutes with the lid closed then flipped.
After another three minutes I moved the beef ribs over to the cool side of the grill and put the shrimp skewers over the hot coals and closed the lid.
Three minutes of grilling and I flipped the shrimp. Nice looking stuff!
I let them go for another three minutes then took everything off the grill. My total grill time was just under 15 minutes and everything came out great. The heat and flavor from the Lucky Dog Hot Sauce really carried through and gave a nice “afterburner” profile to the shrimp.
(Here are a few other ideas for grilled shrimp skewers.)
The only complaint I had with this cook was that I didn’t get to spend more time with my grill.
If you decide the Jumbo Joe would be a good addition to your backyard you can pick one up here at Amazon. I highly recommend eventually getting the hinged grate as well. It comes in handy on long cooks and can be used to drastically increase capacity.
