  • Pellet Grill (Woodcreek 4-in-1 pellet grill by Cuisinart)


  • 4-6 pounds Snow Crab clusters
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup butter melted
  • 6 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp sweet Paprika Seafood Seasoning By Cuisinart
  • Italian Parsley fresh flat-leaf for serving
  • lemon wedges
  • lime wedges
  • 1 tsp dried Parsley


  • Set the temperature on your pellet grill to 250˚F and allow it to preheat for 15 minutes.
  • Mix the butter, garlic, parsley, and seasoning in a saucepot and place it on the grill. I like to smoke some garlic, lemons, and lime at the same time for serving. Oil the grill grates before adding the Legs on.
  • Set your Snow Crab legs on the grill for about 20 minutes and baste with your butter mixture about every 5 minutes. after the 20 mins, I recommend searing them 2min each side on high heat. This is to ensure the legs are warm and have a nice looking charred on the outer shell when you serve them.
  • Squeeze some grilled lemon juice over the shells.
  • Pull your snow cram legs off your smoker and serve immediately with a few melted butter mixture bowl for dipping the crab meat. Serve with grilled lemon and lime wedges, Italian parsley, garlic bread and a side of potatoes.
