    I use this for a quick sauce.

    Along with this.

    Add these to taste. Parmesan cheese, Smart Balance, basil and gran garlic.

    All mixed up.

    Pasta was pre cooked, sauce heated in pan with ingredients, shrimp were raw.

    Smoked at 165 with hickory until shrimp were cooked, I am thinking maybe 1 1/2 hour.

    It tasted 10 times better than it looks, poor presentation doesn't help sorry, I was too hungry to plate it.

    Thanks for watching.

    I will give you points for originality. The only thing I have issue with is the sauce in a jar. Try this sometime. This is for a big order of alfredo.

    2 cups heavy cream
    1 cup milk. at least 2%
    1 package of shredded parma cheese
    1 teaspoon granulated garlic
    1 teaspoon crushed red pepper.

    heat cream and milk to a simmer, add other ingredients and stir until cheese is melted. add more garlic and pepper to taste. I also like some black pepper.

    This is the basic recipe we used at a restaurant i worked at. It was awesome and easy.

    i'm sure you know how to make it even better Ron, seeing as you used to have a restaurant. This is mostly for anyone who wants it and is like me and can't stomach the jar stuff. It always makes me sick, but I love alfredo so much, I had to learn how to make it myself.

    Now THAT is a turn on originality! Points to you Ron, for pushing the envelope on smoking food. Looked pretty dang good, jarred sauce or not!

    Thanks for the recipe, I used to make it in the restaurant from scratch, too old and lazy now.[​IMG]

    Thanks man, this jar sauce needs some help though. It is lacking any definite flavors. With additional ingredients it is good and fast and easy.

    Thanks Rich.

    As far as sauce in a jar, that is one of the best - especially if doctored!

    I buy real, shaved parm. cheese and thow it in the food processor with granulated garlic and the dried spices...then add it to the sauce.

    Funny, alfredo is simple in the ingredients, but still - kind of a PITA to least I feel that way.

    Way to be Ron! My wife doesn't like smoked food quite as much as I do - but bar none, her fav dish is shrimp alfredo. I will be doing this soon...

    What did you think of the flavor compared to baking it, or the traditional method of tossing in a pan on the stove top? Was there a noticeable improvement in the flavor by smoking it? Would you recommend hickory or apple? I have an abundance of both, but no other kind of wood on hand right now.

    Thanks for the View!

    Interesting idea doing it all together instead of just the shrimp. Have to give that a try sometime.

    I liked it better but then I like everything better smoked. Try using both woods their a good match.

    Now onto another project, turkey pastrami.

    Presentation aside it looks great Ron, and if you say it tastes even better than it looked then that must have been a great meal.
    Great job!

    I would put this sauce against any homemade after it is altered. But then that's just me. The first ingregient is creme then water then Parmasan cheese. Just needs some help is all.
