Method

  • Fire up. Prepare a grill for high heat cooking, approximately 400°F.
  • Prep. Cut the potatoes in half. Cut each ear of corn crosswise into 8 even sections. Cut the smoked sausage into ½-inch slices. Remove the ends from the lemon and cut into ½-inch slices.
  • Combine the potatoes, corn, sausage, shrimp, olive oil, and 1 ½ tablespoons of the Old Bay seasoning in a large bowl and toss until evenly coated.
  • Place the seasoned ingredients in a disposable aluminum half pan. Add the lemon slices, butter, beer, and water. Sprinkle the remaining Old Bay over the ingredients, and cover the pan tightly with foil.
  • Cook. Place the aluminum pan on the grill and cover the grill.
  • Allow the packet to cook until the shrimp is cooked through and the potatoes are fork tender, approximately 25 minutes.
  • Remove the aluminum pan from the grill and carefully open the foil to allow the steam to escape.
  • Serve. Serve immediately in the pan or spread out on sheets of newspaper.
