My sister and I do this one, with a couple of changes: we add a sliver of frozen pepper Jack cheese along with the jalapeno in the shrimp cavity (frozen so it doesn't melt away completely during grilling), and we don't bother with the BBQ sauce - basting with white worcestershire sauce mixed with melted butter makes these DIVINE!

Please explain -- why haven't you posted more Robby's recipes? These prawns are superb and the recipe is more flexible than you might realise. The night I was going to cook the prawns, the whole house was in chaos. Toothpicks and fiddly slices of jalapeno were out of the question. So I cooked the bacon and set it aside. I melted some butter in a pan, then added the prawns, jalapenos, barbecue sauce and finally the bacon. The result was delicious. I promise to make your appetizer version some day, but this was an outstanding and impressive way to end a frentic day. Thanks so much.

made these as part of a nice BBQ lunch for my parents, what a great combo of flavors. I did mess up and overcook my bacon so it was a bit too crisp to wrap around the shrimp, i just went ahead and threaded shrimp, jalapeno piece, and bacon on skewers and did them as kabobs. Tasted great, i used left over sauce from http://www.food.com/recipe/should-be-illegal-oven-bbq-ribs-8701 on these.

Delicious! I used homemade barbecue sauce and fresh jalapeno peppers, with the seeds removed. It was very good and great on the grill. Thanks for sharing!

Loved the flavor of these shrimp. My hubby is a lover of anything bacon. He doesn't usually go for seafood but the bacon convinced him. Thanks for the yummy dish.
