I am using a pound of Lobster Anywhere Black Tiger Shrimp, Dizzy Pig Seasonings Dizzy Dust, and PS Seasonings Cherry Bomb BBQ Sauce for the marinade. I took the thawed shrimp and covered them in the Dizzy Dust then poured half the bottle of the Cherry Bomb to cover the shrimp in a bowl. Let that sit for 30 minutes while you fire up your Big Green Egg to 350° set for direct grilling.

Skewer the shrimp evenly. I got 4 shrimp per skewer with this batch.

Take some of that reserved BBQ sauce and pour it in a small container to use as a glaze while the shrimp is cooking.

Place the shrimp on the Big Green Egg (I am using a MiniMax here) and let cook 3-4 minutes before flipping. Glaze the shrimp as it cooks. Flip the shrimp and keep glazing until you see that deep color and char form… another 3-4 minutes.
