    I originally posted this elsewhere but VegansBEWARE asked about the photo on my facebook page a little while back. So I am finally getting around to posting it.

    I wrapped scallops in some buckboard bacon that I had made previously

    Getting started


    Wrapped them in bacon then onto the kabob skewers to make them easier to move around. Sprinkled a little garlic salt and some pepper


    As things are cooking


    When they were almost done I dabbed a little garlic butter on them. Here they are pulled off the smoker


    Close up


    They were great. Definately will do these again. Thanks for looking

    Those look great. Question about scallops though. do they get all rubbery if they are smoked from over cooking? I know if you over cook them on the stove they become unedible.

    I am sure it is possible to overcook them on the smoker, but I watched em pretty close. That is also why I used buckboard bacon-since it is so much leaner, it crisps up faster. These were great, but you are right. There is a fine line between done and overdone.

    Those look awesome. I'm only 2 hours away and I've got family in Omaha...if I left in the morning, I could be there in time for lunch.

    Wow, those look incredible. Sea scallops are probably my favorite seafood, even over lobster tail.

    This will make my to-do list for sure.
     
  11. Glad I asked about them! Those look AWESOME!!! Might have to try them out...someday, hopefully soon.

    I think at smoker temps you have a bigger window before they are overcooked. Broiling or Grilling a couple minutes can be over cooked but at smoker temps it takes longer. The buckboard bacon got crisp about the same time that the scallops looked done. It worked out pretty well

    how long did you cook the scallops and at what temp? Did you just smoke til the bacon crisped up? I love scallops and Im interested in trying this. Those look awesome.

    Temps were about 240F. I went more by feel of the scallops and look of the bacon for doneness-if I remember right it was about 45 minutes.
