Smoked Shrimp - Stuffed and Bacon Wrapped

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

I just got Jeff's newsletter, read the bacon wrapped shrimp with great interest, but I have a question for ya'll.

 

 

25-35 minutes at 225 doesn't get me crispy bacon :-(

I just made a batch of ABT's the 1/2 slice of thin Oscar Meyer (don't say it) was still chewy and earned me a complaint from She Who Must Be Obeyed :-(((((

 

Do you folks pre-cook bacon or am I missing some deep dark secret? 

 

 

Any thoughts?

Your going to have to kick the heat up to get crispy bacon. I have put ABT's in the microwave for a min to crisp up the bacon.

Happy smoken.

Tsquared -  did you precook the bacon as was suggested in the newsletter?

I have a question about the newsletter, too.  What does "grate level" mean

It refers to tracking the temp at the area where your food is - here are a couple pics showing thermometers measuring temp at grate level  Thumbs Up

no, we haven't tried this yet.

Shrimp are in the freezer, now if I can only get out of the office :-)

Even pre-cooked, the bacon will not be crisp like in breakfast bacon strips.  It's just the nature of bacon and the temps for smoking.  It will be done and will add that wonderful bacon flavor to the shrimp which is the goal.  Just don't expect crispy bacon.
