Thumbs down I Tried A Smoke Signals Recipe

So I was flipping through this month's issue and saw the bacon wrapped shrimp and wanted to give it a go. I'm not a big seafood guy, but I do eat shrimp on occasion, so I figured bacon and shrimp would be great ... WRONG.

Almost everything that could have went wrong did ... I don't know what it is, but I just can't seem to get bacon to crisp up when I try to cook things on the grill ... any help?

Here's the whole cook if you want to check it out and tell me where I screwed up ... I'm sure there's a lot of places

Before they went on the grill ... looking nice



Even tried the indirect heat it called for.



I ended up having to turn the heat up a bit to get them to cook ... and it was still just a mush of bacon fat. Half of the toothpicks fell out ... it was just a mess.



I couldn't even get a good looking pic for the finishing touch.



I don't know what happened, but mine do NOT look like the shrimp in the magazine ...
