1/4 cup Cattleman's Grill Steakhouse Seasoning

2 tbsp Big Rick's Chipotle Ketchup

Place the shrimp in a brining/marinating container with the Sweetwater Spice Tres Chiles. Place in the refrigeration for 30-45 minutes.
- Combine the ingredients for the rémoulade in a bowl and mix well to incorporate. Store in the refrigerator.

Preheat the Yoder Smokers YS640 pellet grill to 450°F, set up with GrillGrates, for direct grilling.
Remove the shrimp from the brine/marinade. Thread the shrimp onto flat skewers. Season with the Cajun seasoning on all sides.
- Grill the shrimp until slightly charred. Flip the skewers and continue grilling until the shrimp are opaque, and the internal temperature reaches 140°F. Toast your French bread on the grill.
