WHAT YOU'LL NEED
PELLET GRILL (I used my Louisiana Grills Black Label 1200)
REUSABLE ALUMINIUM CASSEROLE DISH
PELLETS (I used Pitmasters Choice Premium Pellets, Fruit Blend)
("SCALEANDTAILOR10" for 10% off Pellets)
Crab Legs (Set of 2-4)
Butter (1/2 cup) Garlic (3 cloves, minced) Italian Seasoning (1 tsp)
(Optional) Citrus Spice Rub From Louisiana Grills)
DIRECTIONS (45 minutes - 1 hour)
For this Smoked Crab Leg Recipe, we will be steaming the crab legs first and ending it with a nice smoke bath. Using your reusable aluminum container add your crab legs.
Using a small microwavable dish add your butter, seasonings, and garlic. Microwave in 20-second intervals until the butter is melted. You can use a fork to stir in between if you like. Slowly pour over the crab legs and let marinate 1-2 hours before.
Preheat your pellet smoker to 300 degrees, 20 minutes before planning to throw the bbq crab legs on. Cover the aluminum casserole dish with aluminum foil tightly. The goal here is to create a tight seal (so double up if you have to) to create steam. Place directly on your grill and cook covered for 30 minutes. Once your crab legs are fully cooked, uncover and give them a nice creamy smoke bath to really kick up the flavour of these smoked crab legs for another 15-20 minutes. Enjoy immediately.
