not sure if direct or indirect. I was thinking direct about 400 but dont think bacon will be done without ruining the scallops. any advice??

Thanks Pat

    Render the bacon to partially done first, then wrap the scallops. Both will be done at the same time. The cook is so short that direct/indirect really doesn't matter so do it the way you are comfortable with. Direct at 400 will work fine.

  • you can use thin bacon and wrap it from bottom to top of the scallop using direct heat to cook the bacon to be done when the scallop is.

    Yep! I do them just like you do. I dust with a little raging river and grill them at around 400. good luck, Tom

    I did six very large ones last night, also wrapped in proscuitto like yours.

    400 Degrees direct, raised grid (large grate mates) on my Small egg for about 30 min.

    Also had some nice Stone crab claws as an appetizer.
