Sterling Davis / @slothstradamusbbq / YS640

Sweet, spicy, salty … otherwise umami goodness. This shrimp’s got it all, plus it’s pretty quick and easy. Check out Sterling Davis’ recipe for Gochujang Saewu Gui (Korean Glazed Shrimp) off his Yoder Smokers YS640.


1 lb. cleaned shrimp with tails removed
4oz gochujang paste (found in the international foods section of most grocery stores)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
4 minced garlic cloves
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon sriracha


Combine all ingredients well for a marinade. Set aside a small amount as a glaze and topper for the cooked shrimp.
Place shrimp in marinade and let chill in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes.
Preheat YS640 for 350 degrees direct cooking.
Place shrimp on skewers.
Cook shrimp 3 minutes each side over direct flame.
Place marinated shrimp in a cast iron and place iron over direct flame. Add 2 tablespoons butter and cook shrimp evenly for 5-8 minutes or until done.
Top with remaining marinade to taste, fresh cilantro and diced jalapenos (if you want an extra kick!) and serve.

Smoked Chipotle-Garlic Guacamole

Sterling Davis / @Slothstradamusbbq / YS640

With Game Day around the corner, appetizers are on everyone’s mind. There is no shortage of delicious apps floating around the internet right now, and I figured I might as well toss one on the pile.

Perfect with a bag of tortilla chips, thrown on a chimichanga, or the base layer of amazing tacos, this versatile guacamole is sure to become a crowd favorite.

Here is what you will need:

• 6 Avocados
• 1/2 Chopped Red Onion
• 1 Tomato, chopped
• 1 bunch Cilantro, finely chopped
• 1 Can Chipolte Peppers (strained and rinsed)
• 2 Jalapeno Peppers (seeds in for more kick, seeds removed for less spice)
• 2 Limes
• 1 Tablespoon freshly minced garlic
• 1 Teaspoon Cumin
• 1 Teaspoon Chile Powder
• 1 Teaspoon Salt


1. Preheat Smoker to 180 Degrees
2. Cut Avocados in half and remove the seeds, place avocados on the smoker cut-side up for 20 minutes
3. Prep all other items. Mince Fresh Garlic and chop Red Onion, Tomato, Cilantro, and Jalapeno.
4. For this recipe, I took 3 Chipotle Peppers and ran them through a food processor.
5. When the Avocados are done smoking, remove from smoker and place them in a large bowl. Using a fork, mash the Avocados as fine as you prefer. I like some chunks of Avocado so I do not mash them super fine.
6. Add the Chipotle Peppers and mix them thoroughly with the avocados. This does take the pretty green away from the guacamole but it is worth it, trust me!
7. Mix in Onion, Jalapeno, Garlic, Tomato, and seasoning and mix together well. I add the Cilantro and Lime and mix it one last time.
8. Done! Serve in whatever medium you desire!

Smoked Garlic Parmesan Wings


Will Turner / @will_turner13 / YS640


2 lbs. of wings
5 Tablespoons of unsalted butter
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan
3 teaspoons of garlic powder
1/4 cup of hot sauce
Fresh Parsley
Bleu Cheese or Ranch
Meat Church Holy Voodoo Rub


First I preheat my Yoder Smokers YS640 to 325 degrees. While the smoker is warming up, I lightly season the wings with the Holy Voodoo rub by Meat Church. The wings are placed on the top rack of the smoker and are cooked to an internal temp between 175-180. This will take about 40 – 45 minutes. Once the wings are off, toss the wings in melted butter, hot sauce, garlic powder, and freshly grated Parmesan. Garnish with parsley and serve with bleu cheese or ranch.
