I love grilled shrimp but I have never really cared for it with tomato based commercial barbecue sauces. I just find them too sweet for the already sweet shrimp.

I have been using Koss Sauce for several of my recent cooks. It is a barbecue sauce but it isn’t as sweet as most and doesn’t have the big tomato base taste of most. I thought it might go well with shrimp.

I tossed 16 medium shrimp with creole seasonings (you can make your own or use a commercial blend) and then Koss sauce.

I preheated my Louisiana Grills pellet smoker to 220 F with a grilling grate in the smoker. I smoked the shrimp for 15 minutes.

I brushed the shrimp with the Koss sauce remaining in the bowl and smoked for 10 more minutes.

The Verdict

This is incredible. The Koss Sauce has a touch of tart with just enough sweet to balance. By using a small amount for a glaze it doesn’t overpower the shrimp and just gives it a nice colour, a complex taste and a great bit of spice.
