  • 14 oz Klement's Smoked Sausage Loop cut into 40 slices
  • 2 zucchini cut into 40 slices
  • 40 shrimp raw, tail-on
  • 1 batch Smoky Barbecue Sauce


  1. If you like pre-soak 40 wooden skewers in cold water for at least an hour.

  2. I also sliced some zucchini - you can get about 40 slices from the smoked sausage, so I cut 20 from two zucchini. So you'll also need 40 shrimp! I used raw, tail-on shrimp.
  3. Thread one slice of zucchini, one slice of sausage, and one shrimp onto each skewer. Any order will do but it makes for a nice presentation if you keep them all the same and curl the shrimp around the curve of either the zucchini or sausage.

  4. Cook them on the grill (or if cooking inside you could use a grill pan) for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce according to the separate recipe instructions.

  6. Once the skewers are cooked, lay them out on a platter and drizzle them with some of the sauce. Pour the remainder in a small bowl for dipping.
