You Can Smoke Anything With Meat

The girls and I went crabbing over the weekend and came home with five nice size blue crabs, with thanks to Farruggio…

To be honest, I wasn’t looking forward to bringing them in the house to steam them – and the cooker was already fired up for wings and shrimp, so we decided to go “All In” and throw the crabs on too…

Now, I’ve tried beef (ribs, chuckie, brisket, tendeloin, and rib roast), chicken (wings, thighs, quarters, halves, and wholes), pork (ribs, loins, butts, kielbasa, and bacon explosion), and shrimp…

But what about blue crab? Can you smoke something that is typically steamed, has a hard outer shell but no fat, and is still alive?

YES! YES! YES!

The crabs didn’t walk away, took about 45 minutes, and came out fantastic. The meat turned dark, which is a little odd, but it was great. They were still moist and came out of the shell without trouble…

A definite do over…

And it got me thinking – what can’t you smoke? So far, nothing…

Now we can add “You can smoke anything with meat”…
