2 teaspoons olive oil

2 tablespoons Barbecue Seasoning

12 ounces smoked sausage rope

12 ounces shrimp jumbo, tail-on, peeled and deveined


Prepare the grill and preheat to about 175 degrees C or 350 degrees F. (Make sure to clean the grates before preheating.)

Slice the sauce into the same thickness as the shrimp about 1-inch thick.

Use paper towels to pat dry the shrimp, then place them into a large mixing bowl.

In the bowl with the shrimp, add BBQ seasoning, sausage, and olive oil. Toss everything until well incorporated.

Thread the ingredients with skewers. Make sure to shape the shrimp into a letter “C”. Repeat the process with the rest of the ingredients.

Place them over the preheated grill, then cook for 3 minutes on each side or until done.

Transfer onto a clean serving plate.

Serve and enjoy!


Make sure to soak the wooden skewers in water for half an hour before grilling to prevent them from burning.

You can use metal skewers instead.

Make sure to double the recipe if you are serving more than 6 people.

Do not overcook the shrimp. 3 minutes on each side is just enough to cook them.

Make sure to devein the shrimp. Peel them and remove the vein on the back of each shrimp.


Q: What is Barbecue Shrimp?

A: Barbecue Shrimp refers to shrimp that has been marinated or basted in a barbecue-style sauce and then grilled or broiled. The sauce often includes ingredients like ketchup, vinegar, sugar, and various spices.

Q: How do you prepare Barbecue Shrimp?

A: First, the shrimp are cleaned and deveined. Then, they’re tossed in a barbecue-style marinade and allowed to sit for a while so they can absorb the flavors. Finally, the shrimp are quickly grilled or broiled, often while being basted with more sauce.

Q: Can I make Barbecue Shrimp in advance?

A: You can certainly prepare and marinate the shrimp in advance, but we recommend grilling them just before you plan to serve for the best flavor and texture. Grilled shrimp can get rubbery if reheated.
