Bacon wrapped heaven

I am sure most of you who have eaten at one of my parties know.. The bacon wrapped shrimp and scallops are amazing...

So here is how and since it is so simple, even you can do them.

1-2 pounds of big shrimp (deveined and shelled)
1 pack of bacon (any kind will do cheaper the better)
1 bottle of Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce (original flavor is fine)
Skewer sticks (soaked in water for a couple of hours ahead of time don't worry I always forget too)

Cut the bacon into about 2 inch lengths then take the pieces and put one thin layer of bacon around the shrimp and skewer (this will take some practice) you may need to stretch the bacon to get it go fully around the shrimp.

You should Pre-Heat your grill to medium-low heat. You can go hotter just remember they cook REALLY fast. Once the bacon is cooked and shrimp is white (not a minute longer) apply the BBQ sauce to your skewers and as soon as you have the sauce on all of them flip the first skewer and then continue to flip them all over, once flip start taking them off again starting with the first one you sauced.

You can simply replace scallops anywhere you see the word shrimp for something different.
