    I am wondering about the scallops. (I love love them!!!!) A Chef friend who is a competition smoker told me scallops would get rubbery. Did you find that....or with the wonderful bacon they stayed tender? I would love to try that....thanks for sharing!

    I've got to try this.   I am also interested to know what seafood cheese is.

    Looks good!

    A pre-cook on the bacon will save many delicate dishes.

    I hate it when bacon wrapped seafood bites will ruin both the bacon and the seafood!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    I'm thinking as the above posters as well.

    My daughter will be back from Victoria BC. and wants a seafood night with her Papa on Christmas-eve. I've had some of the best of the freshest seafood while visiting there.

    Who am I to show her how to prepair fresh seafood!

    Please help these old bones offer her something worthy!

    Just did a sample run of these this morning,  I wanted to try them before I did a whole pan.  These are totally awesome!  Just put in a full pan of bacon.  To me the bacon could be crisper.  This is the cheese I used.   tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Seafood-Cheese-Dip

    I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!!   My bird is in!

    I hope everyone has a "Smoking"  day!!!

    Pote oyster sounds good!   Just a note.  Spray your pan with pam and they won't stick.  Just got my full batch out.  Totally awesome!  I may have smoked them a bit long, still awesome!  I will be doing this again.
     
  17. Rick, those look fabulous!  Scallops are one of my favorites.  Going to have to try this one.  Your friend there has great taste.    
     
  18. Looks like I will be making these today for some pre-football action. They look awesome!! Nice job!
