    If you’re going to try clams I suggest steamers or as we on Long Island call them piss clams because when you bbq them they will open up when fully cooked . The ones that don’t throw out they are dead and are poisonous. use a mix of lemon , butter and garlic.MMM,MMMM

  • @mswoody6-4 Thanks for the tips! With Octopus when you eat it without reheating is it rubbery if you cut big pieces? Everything I read said no matter what you should still slice it thin or it will be tough to chew. I’d love to do one with little neck clams for seafood next, it’s not exactly a revolutionary idea but sometimes it’s nice to do something just cause it is tasty!

    A preboiled octopus is already cooked, seafood such as octopus, squid,shrimp, etc when reheated to much, when eaten tend to chew like rubber. You should try bbqing these item’s fresh. It will give you a better prospective as will it bbq. Where I work every chef and cook will not reheat shrimp, squid, octopus, etc. Due to the fact that it will become tougher to chew.

  • BBQ Octopus Will it BBQ? Octopus!

    In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Octopus and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!

    Octopus Prep Time

    10 Minutes

    Cook Time

    10 Minutes

    Ingredients

    1 Boiled Octopus

    Utensils Needed

    Non-Stick Mesh Basket

    Instructions This depends on if you have purchased a boiled Octopus or not. We purchased one that was if you purchased one that was not you need to boil it first for about 30 minutes or steam it. Some people say that steaming it makes it sweeter. When you buy a preboiled one like we did all you need to do is separate the legs from the head, and if you want, sprinkle seasoning or olive oil on them and put them on the grill for a few minutes. We found it hard to get a char on the outside because of the high water content of the meat. It is important that you slice it very thin when eating. So, Will it BBQ?

    Absolutely! This worked really well in my mind as the Octopus had a very mild fish taste, similar to crab, or more accurately the fake crab meat you buy in stores that is usually some sort of flake or white fish. The real star here was the dipping sauces. We made one that was just a stick of butter in a pan that we added some Signature Pork Rub and it was excellent. All the sauces we dipped it in were excellent though! If you want to wow dinner guests this might be the best one we have done for that! I said it above and I will say it again here, it is VERY IMPORTANT to slice this thin. Thicker pieces become incredibly chewy and difficult to eat but sliced thin I thought it was wonderful! This is the shorter version, for anyone interested we have an extended version available as well to see all of our reactions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbNZTj4FabA.

  • BBQ'ing Squid Will it BBQ? Squid!

    In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Squid and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!

    Grilling Squid Prep Time

    60 Minutes

    Cook Time

    10 Minutes

    Ingredients

    1 Squid
    1 Pineapple

    Utensils Needed

    Non-Stick Mesh Basket
    Boning Knife

    Instructions If you purchased an entire squid, as we did, then you need to start by separating the hood from the tentacles. You can do this by making a clean cut just above the head. Then you need to remove a ball-like piece from the head, this will contain the beak, it comes out easily just feel around for it and squeeze it out. Then you need to reach up into the hood and remove the internal guts. You should also be able to pull out the quill at this point, the quill is a clear plastic looking piece that is roughly the size and shape of a feather. Next clean everything very well under water. Then lay the hood flat and either cut or pull off the wings. Then cut through the upper half of the hood leaving the bottom half intact, this will make the squid more tender and allow you to stuff it with more pineapple. Stuff it with pieces of pineapple and sprinkle on the seasoning of your choice. Then go ahead and grill it until it has the desired consistency, about 3-5 minutes a side should do it. Get some dipping sauces ready and enjoy! So, Will it BBQ?

    This was one of our more “interesting” ones. I like calamari in pasta dishes and when it is fried, grilling it was very good, but the texture was not as good as when it is fried, the hood was by far the best part though. The tentacles were not something I would eat again and the “wings” were at best okay. We have the longer version of this video available Here if you want to watch the entire thing.
