I highly recommend pre-cooking the bacon. The shrimp cook so quickly that the bacon doesn’t have time to get crispy in the smoker. Cook bacon for about 5 minutes in the oven @ 375 F. Then cut in half or thirds.

Take a slice of pre-cooked bacon and wrap shrimp. Secure with a toothpick or skewer, that’s all there is to it. Don't forget to dust them with brown sugar and Country Bob's Seasoning Salt.

Fire up pellet grill or smoker and get it up to 225F using your favorite type of wood/pellets. Today we used 100% pure apple wood pellets from Smokin Brothers. Or you can set up your grill (gas or charcoal) to cook indirect.

Once the smoker is maintaining a steady temperature, it is ready for the shrimp.

At the 30-minute mark check for doneness and at this time brush on your Country Bob's BBQ Sauce.

Most shrimp will turn pinkish when they are done and this is a good indicator but you do not want to overcook shrimp or they will get rubbery. Shrimp should be near perfect in 35 minutes @ 225 degrees F.
