Beer Bread and New Orleans Style Shrimp on the UDS

I've definately made this's one of my favorite "finger foods". :)

 I fried up a few cubes of bacon.

Made a batch of beer bread
3 cups self rising flour
1/4 cup of sugar (more or less to suit taste)
a pinch of salt
and 1 beer

Brushed the bread with bacon drippngs and smoked on high heat in the UDS until the top sounded hollow when tapped.

While the bread baked I made my spicy shrimp sauce using the bacon drippings... (recipe in link above)

Added the shrimp and stirred to coat before placing in the drum...

These didn't take long at all... I gave the shrimp a couple more stirs for even cooking.

Served with plenty of napkins and cold beer.....

I loved the shrimp... but my favorite part was the beer bread dipped in the spicy shrimp sauce.  :)
Hope to make this again soon!

On the bread: How much is one of your beer?

Those shrimp again! I've got to start diggin' a hole:) Gonna borrow a welder from a friend this weekend and try and get the finishing touches on on my UDS, not counting paint and other details. I'll have to look into the blog thing and post a picture or two. A. Chris

cowgirl said...

lol Yes those shrimp again. :)
Hope you let me know how the UDS build goes Chris. I would really love to see pics if you get the time. You might be able to use JB Weld in place of welding. Just an idea.
I made pita bread in mine today... that was a first but they tasted pretty good! :)

Thanks Chris..

Looking good Jeanie. I love shrimp. I have had a bad experience with it once though. I bought a big bag of jumbo shrimp once and I took a few out for supper. I put the bag of shrimp away, but somehow I put it into a drawer in the kitchen instead of the freezer. It was like, oooops. I really hope to never do that again. I eventually found the lost shrimp though.

Bacon in cube form? Spicy shrimp? Slopping up spicy shrimp broth with beer bread? Sounds like a little bit of nirvana in Okie land... Looking good Jeanie.

JazzCat said...

As always Jeanie, your cookin' is lookin' Fantastic! Love that shrimp cook!!

Sid said...

Ok, did the shrimp thing for dinner last night. Made enough for two sittings. Ate it all in one. Somebody should make bacon out of me! As delicious as I expected! I can see why it's one of your favorites. Can see this happening again in the not to distant future.

cowgirl said...

Oh my goodness! My mouth is watering. I've not seen anything that looks that good for a long time . . . or maybe it is because I'm real hungry, but I don't think that's it. Hey, Steve over at (he's one of your followers) made this Motorcycle Rocking Horse for his granddaughter, check it out. Very Cool. Now, I'm going to the kitchen to add shrimp to my shopping list. This is a recipe, I'm ready for. Yum!!!!!
Have a great day, Connie

cowgirl said...

Thank you Connie! It's nice to meet you.
I checked out Steve's horse... he is very talented.
Thanks for stopping by Connie! :)

That looks really good Jeanie, I should try it


David said...

When I die, I want to come back as a pig so you can make me look good, and people will look at my belly and say "YUM." Seriously - that's some fine snacking food right there!

cowgirl said...
