Today we are making Frog Legs in the smoker! That’s right frog legs. We don’t have frog legs around here that often, so today is a special treat for us. This is a very simple frog leg recipe that will produce delicious frog legs every time.
When preparing your frog legs, always remember that less is better. Don’t hide the delicate flavor of the frog legs with a bunch of seasonings.
Brining is not critical for frog legs because they will only be in the smoker for 30 minutes to an hour. With that said, I do use a brine for 1-2 hours. After brining, rinse the legs with water to get rid of any excess salt.
After removing from the brine, rinsing and patting dry (with paper towels), I use about ½ cup of olive oil per 2 lbs of frog legs and mix 4 teaspoons of Walker & Sons Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning.
Set the smoker at 225 degrees. I’m using my Masterbuilt Electric Smoker. Also, I am using a combination of Alder and Cherry wood. The lighter wood will not overwhelm the oysters.
