    Smoked Snails

    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!

    Snails

    Prep Time

    10 minutes

    Cook Time

    45 minutes

    Ingredients

    Snails
    Butter
    White Wine
    Signature Pork Rub

    Instructions

    In 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 It was great on the steak. I’ve never had the flat iron cut before. I was really surprised how tender it was. After I pulled the meat from the smoker I was concerned that I may have overcooked it as it felt a bit firm. I coated it in a blackening seasoning and seared it with smoking hot butter until I got a decent crust and then let it rest for a few minutes. It was perfect.
