I love to grill and love my smoked pulled pork. Also love shrimp. This combines smoke with shrimp. I like to use a grilling skillet, but feel free to use skewers. Adapted from a Steven Raichlen recipe. Prep time does not include the time to soak the wood chips. Shrimp marinating time is included in prep time.
