    This was to be my Christmas dinner.... it was a couple of days late, but better late than never. [​IMG]

    King crab legs on the drum....


    a pouch of pototoes and onions with butter and Harley's rub....





    and ribeyes.....




    The legs are cooked so they only took about 35 minutes to heat up and soak in the smokey flavor...






    the crab, steak with mushrooms, tatoes and salad...












    Thanks for looking!

    Nice Legs Cowgirl! [​IMG]

    Just curious, did the smoke enhance the delicate flavor of the crab legs? I am sure it could overwhelm quickly if not put under your careful eyes. Great job as usual.
     
  10. Are those them new "pre-slit" crab legs like Aldi's is now selling? I love king crab except for all the wrestling to get the meat.

    Another fine meal!

    How long did you keep the potatoes in there? I assume there is a range between still raw and "creamed" pototoes too?

    WOW! That plate looks great!
    Any tips on the crab legs? I bought a case and ate some for Christmas, did them in the oven, never thought of smoking them...
    Thanks for sharing!
    Godspeed,

    Thanks folks!
    Thank you Scarbelly!
    Paul...that's all I need. [​IMG]

    Alex.. me too! I love crab legs and rib eyes.

    lol BBQ Engineer! I use a low heat and bring the legs up to temperature slowly..they take on a delicate smoke flavor. Since they are already cooked it doesn't take long. This batch took about 35 minutes.

    Tender loins, these were the pre-slit king crab legs. I got them at a Dillons grocery store. It sure makes them easier to eat! [​IMG]

    Geert...thank you!!

    Smokeguy, I should have specified! The rib eyes and tato pouch were grilled. The potatoes take about 20 minutes and need flipped every once in awhile. [​IMG]

    Big Train and Band Collector... I appreciate you looking. Thanks for the kind comments too. :)


    Bigslick, I just keep a close eye on them. I like to use a low heat too...they seem to take on more smoke that way without drying out.
    Hope you have great luck with yours. :)


    Thanks again folks!

    Now all I have to do is figure out how to add Mahi Mahi to your menu. That was the first thing SWMBO uttered upon seeing your beautiful pictures. Your masterpieces are a true inspiration.[​IMG]
