Excellent flavor combination.... needs some tweaking though. Made exactly as written... used "Jumbo" shrimp which from Sam's is 31-40 shrimp per pound (which required 1/4-1/3 slice bacon). I also used what was pretty thinly sliced bacon. Even with the jumbo shrimp and the thin bacon, I was in danger of having little pink rubbery things to eat for dinner...so I didn't let the bacon get as crisp as I would have preferred. I think it might help to know what "large shrimp" are... are they colossal? Prawns? What are the definitions of colossal vs prawn? In any event... these were in fact very, very good... but some further guidance on the actual *size* of the shrimp would help. I picked up some Webers BBQ rub to use... and was the perfect mix of sweet and spicy...I didn't need to press it in.... it melted right in as the recipe said it would. All things considered, these were a hit... and very filling. Will be trying these again with bigger shrimp + the same thickness of bacon... it will be absolutely perfect.
