Sweet Heat Pear and Raspberry Jalapeno Smoked Shrimp

That's a tuff one to say three times fast.

In a recent spice exchange, I received a bottle of Raspberry Jalapeno Sauce from friend.. Beer-B-Q in Kansas City and a bottle of Sweet Heat Pear Pepper Sauce from Phubar in the Netherlands.

I decided to try both sauces out on some of my shrimp....







First I brined the shrimp in salt water for a few hours, then dipped some of the shrimp in the raspberry jalapeno sauce. Wrapped some of the shrimp in bacon and brushed the skewered shrimp with the Sweet Heat Pear sauce...

I smoked the shrimp in my drum at around 295 degrees...using some olive wood.












I brushed the Sweet Heat Pear sauce on the skewered shrimp before serving too...


The Raspberry Jalapeno spicy smoked shrimp....



The Sweet Heat Pear sauced shrimp....








They were sooooo tasty!

Can't wait to try the sauces on other things. :)

As always the food looks scrumptious.
But I have to ask. Aren't you a little bit worried? Another inch or two shorter and you could be covered in sweat heat pear sauce and be on that plate.
