"and a great first step would be shoulder shrugs done with barbells and dumbbells."

Mine do fine with deadlifts and bent over rows. I haven't even done a single shrug in well over a year.

Personally, I like to follow up my deadlifts with 3-4 sets of shrugs. They'll be sore for a couple days after that.

I had been shrugging for a couple years with not much to show for it. Since I added deadlifts I've actually started to see a difference in the last 6 months or so.

One exercise I felt really help build my traps, was behind the neck parallel bar pullups. Ever since I added those to my split, I've noticed a difference

Olympic lifts and their pull variations. Anecdotal evidence: Olympic lifters and their sizable traps. You won't catch them doing much, if any, isolation work for anything.

To the contrary, theres a guy in his 30s here that does shrugs, usually bbell, with anywhere from 550 to 600 lbs. I guarantee his traps he bigger that yours or hotchits. And he never does any deads. So he would probably laugh that they are essential & the only way to get huge traps.

I have big traps. I always get comments about them. I haven't been able to do deadlifts for 6 years (due to chronic knee problems). But I shrug using the the Smith machine, with the bar held in front and rear. What I learned long ago is that my traps respond best to a lot of sets. I do at least 10 sets once a week with about 400 lbs.
