  • 3 lbs Large Shrimp peeled & deveined
  • 2 lbs Sliced Bacon cut in half
  • ½ cup Maple Bourbon Seasoning or your favorite bbq seasoning
  • 2 tbsp Canola Oil
  • Chopped Chives for garnish
Maple Bourbon Glaze:
  • ½ cup Unsalted Butter
  • ¼ cup Maple Syrup
  • 1.5 oz Buffalo Trace Bourbon
  • 1 tbsp Hot Sauce
  1. Begin by adding all the shrimp to a large food safe bowl and lathering with oil. Season generously with Maple Bourbon or your favorite BBQ seasoning. Next, wrap each shrimp with half slices of bacon (go even smaller on the bacon if needed) and add to your skewers. I recommend using two prong skewers or two skewers as it will keep them more secure. Add all the shrimp to the skewers then set aside until ready to cook.
  2. Preheat your grill for two zone indirect cooking at medium high heat temperature (around 350F).
  3. Add a basting cast iron skillet over the flames to preheat. Add your Buffalo Trace Bourbon to simmer for 2-3 minutes, then add the rest of the Maple Bourbon Glaze ingredients to melt. Let simmer for 1 more minute, then pull off and let cool.
  4. Once the butter is done, pull off and add your shrimp to the cool side of the grill to cook for 3-4 minutes per side. Once you flip the first time, begin carefully basting with the Maple Bourbon Glaze. When the shrimp are done, pull off and rest for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Garnish the shrimp with chopped chives, serve and enjoy!
