The perfect treat for a summer gathering or special occasion, these Smoked King Crab Legs are an elegant and delicious showstopper. King crab legs, which typically come from long-legged Alaskan king crabs, are a delicacy that are instantly elevated when smoked on the pellet grill. Serve with a lemon-infused butter and plenty of napkins.
In order to emphasize that sweet and savory flavor that is so common in crab recipes, we recommend using our Pennsylvania Cherry Hardwood Pellets.
Note: This recipe uses Louisiana Grills Lemon Pepper Garlic & Herb Seasoning.
While you don't need to flip or rotate the crab legs during smoking, it is important to make sure you don't overcook them or the flesh may become tough and rubbery.
