Tried making the pineapple bacon shrimp tonight

Followed Foghorns recipe as best I could, these were a huge hit and definitely will be made again. Not sure if they did the originals justice but they sure were good! Many thanks for sharing this recipe!

    I tried them the other night too. I don't see how you cut the bacon in thirds. Not nearly long enough. Maybe my shrimp were huge, but I needed to use 3/4 a strip of bacon to wrap around mine. Pretty good, but the store bought bacon sucked. I wont ever look at bacon the same anymore now that I make my own.

    On the menu for Sunday dinner. We'll see how they turn out.

    Agree on the bacon but my shrimp were definitely larger than suggested, I need to try making my own, seems a little intimidating at this point but I guess nothing ventured nothing gained

    While they may be rough hewn, that is some good-looking chainsaw art.

    Search threads "All this bacon talk". Maybe a few more. Buy pork belly, cure it ~7 days. Cold smoke it. Slice it. Eat it. Talk about how good it is. Love it

    A cold smoker is next on the list!

    Those pictures look like you hit the nail on the head. As for the bacon stretching, there are some factors that affect things: How long is the bacon? How big is the shrimp? What temperature is the bacon (it stretches more as it gets closer to room temperature)? We sometimes have to cut the bacon in half (instead of 1/3s), but with the 26-30 ct shrimp using 1/3 of a strip of bacon is usually best for us.
