  • 1/2 teaspoons ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper 

Mix all ingredients well 

New Orleans BBQ Sauce

  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoons oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 3 1/4 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 1/8 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/16 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/16 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dry thyme
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (1/4 pound)
  • 4 oz of good beer
  • 2 oz of Worcestershire sauce 

Put all the ingredients into a pot or pan and simmer until thickened slightly. Will cover 1 to 2 pounds of shrimp 


Start by making the steak marinade and place the steak into the marinade. Marinate for up to 12 hours. Best to do the night before.

Now devein and peel the shrimp leaving the head and tail section intact. Cut sausage into coins the thickness of the shrimp. Slide the shrimp and sausage onto the skewers as shown in the video. Set to the side

Now remove the steak from the marinade and remove any excess fat. Cut the steak into skewer sized pieces, and slide the steak onto a skewer and set to the side.

Now cut the bell pepper and onions into skewer sizes and place into a zip bag along with the mushrooms and pour oil, salt and pepper into the bag. Seal and work the oil and seasoning all over the vegetable. Now skewer onto skewers.


Start by setting up your grill for two zone cooking. Leave top and bottom vents wide open. Place the vegetable skewers onto the indirect side, put the lid on and check every 5 minutes until they begin to get a little tender. Now sear over direct heat to give the vegetables a little char for optimal flavor.

Place the skewers back onto the indirect side and place the steak skewer(s) over direct fire and sear both sides to your preference, then move to the indirect zone to finish off to your desired doneness.

Place the shrimp and sausage skewers over direct heat, and begin to baste immediately with the New Orleans style BBQ sauce. Watch carefully because the butter will cause flare ups. Flip often and keep basting until done.
