well, I've had bacon shrimp on other people's grills and certainly ABT's and neither the shrimp nor the jalapenos were over cooked by the time the bacon is done. Didn't inquire, my mouth was busy. But it works. Magic, religion, or coals at just the right temp I guess.

I love bacon wrapped shrimp on the grill. They come out just fine for me, too.
I used to precook the bacon part way, but I found the bacon is much easier to work with raw, when you can stretch it as you wrap. Obviously the larger the shrimp the better, but I like my bacon a little on the limp side anyway. It's all about reaching that happy medium.

I usually don't like bacon wrapped stuff because what other people consider cooked bacon, isn't usually cooked enough for my taste. When I get a filet mignon wrapped in bacon, the first thing I do is pull off that limp, yucky bacon.

A couple of weeks ago we went out for supper to a Greek restaurant. I ordered the fisherman's platter, which included scallops. I was not pleased when my scallops arrived wrapped in bacon. But, it was wonderful. On close examination, I believe the bacon wrapped scallops were deep fried.

I hate limp bacon too. When I make shrimp wrapped in bacon I cut thin streaky bacon in half. Never over wrap. Grill at a very high heat and then the bacon is crispy and the shrimp tender and juicy. I also brine the shrimp for an hour or 2.

I, too prefer bacon that is still recognizable as meat. Bacon shouldn't shatter when dropped.
