Snails! Will it BBQ?
Will it BBQ? Snails!
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 Snails and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!
Signature Pork Rub
InstructionsIn a saucepan melt a 1/2 cup of butter then add 1 cup of white wine, then add some signature pork rub. Then in a foil pan add your snails and pour the sauce over top of it, set aside some for dipping. Smoke for 45 minutes over hickory or other stronger tasting woods.
So, Will it BBQ?
The wine and butter sauces was great, it had a really nice taste to it but the snails just had way too many issues to be considered good, so no, it will not BBQ. The taste was okay, similar to a clam but the texture and toughness were terrible. It was like chewing rubber. You should remove the tough foot of the snail to make chewing slightly easier.

Hey guys, just watched your “Snails” video… I believe the problem is you overcooked the snails… Much like doing squid, snails need to be cooked for a very short time or they turn into inedible rubber bands…
I’m not sure this is going to pique your interest in trying this again, but when properly cooked, snails should have a consistency more like snot…
I was definitely open to trying it again as I read the first part of your comment… but yeah, the “snot” consistency is now a bit of a turn-off… But, as we said in the video, the sauce with the Signature Pork Rub was so good, maybe it is worth a second go at it sometime.
If I get a veto on anything then I want to use it NOW, so you are saying the consistency can get actually get WORSE!!!
@PapaSop I don’t buy too many packaged sausages these days (thanks to Walton’s!) but these were very good. They were on sale for $3.99 so I figured I couldn’t go wrong!
I used the above seasoning on the pork along with an extra dusting of cayenne. The ‘Chicken Red’ works really when used liberally on chicken or pork. I don’t normally use premixed seasonings but this one is good and work fast to infuse flavor. It gives everything a great color. It’s salty and garlicky with a little heat. I stumbled upon it by chance and have only seen it at a grocer an hour from me. I stock up any time I get that way.
Very nice. Johnsonville? Wow, from my home land. Pretty much how we judge all brats. Enjoy!
Forgot to mention the taste of the chops after all that. Very good, unique. Will do again.
@PapaSop no deals on chicken but I picked up some bone-in loin chops and some chorizo to go with my grilled jalapeños and asparagus! Everything turned out perfectly moist and juicy. The brats (Johnsonville) were better than expected. If the Excalibur chorizo brat seasoning is as good as those I’ll be quite happy.
