View Full Version : Hickory Smoked Crab Legs & Steak

I used my drum for these... but they work fine on a pellet smoker. (my drum was feeling neglected)
The ribeyes smoked for 45 minutes total and were turned half way through.
The king crab legs are already cooked so they just need to be heated through..they take on a nice bit of smoke in 30 to 35 minutes. I keep an eye on them so they do not dry out.


After smoking, I seared the steaks on the Memphis Pro... these were seared for 7 minutes per side.


The hickory smoked crab legs with garlic butter, twice baked potatoes, smoked ribyeyes with shrooms and salad



I love reverse seared steak...
The legs take on a nice mild smoke flavor too... they are some of my favorite things to smoke.

The only thing I see wrong with that, is it isn't sitting in front of me right now.

Those pics make me want to lick my computer screen!

Looks great. So you just make the crab legs like normal and then smoke them after they are already cooked?

How do you get tongue marks off the computer screen?

Thank you everybody! Smoked crab legs and ribeyes are one of my favorites. :)

TTNuge, sorry, I should have specified.. The king crab legs that I get here are already cooked and frozen .... so I just thaw them out before smoking. They aren't always uniform in size so I have to keep an eye on them so they won't dry out. Some finish sooner than others. I check to see if they are heated through. Hope they turn out well for you! :)
