Easy Bacon wrapped Scallops on the Grill!

Well today for appetizer I decided to make some easy bacon wrap scallops. These are quite tasty and easy to make. If you’re on a budget I found that here in Canada the cheapest place to buy scallops is at your local Costco.  Well let’s get BBQing shall we!


  • Fresh Scallops (preferably the large one)
  • ¼ TSP of Garlic powder
  • ¼ TSP of fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Bacon of course
  • Dizzy Pig Raging River (Optional)


In a measuring cup place the butter, garlic, ground black pepper and pinch of salt. In a microwave melt the mixture then stir and let it cool for about 1 minute.

Mix well and let it cool for a minute or two.

It’s now time to dip the scallops one at a time in the butter mixture for approximately 10 seconds each then take the scallop out and immediately wrap them whit half of slice of bacon and secure the bacon with a toothpick;

Dip Scallops in butter mixture
Cut slices of Bacon in Half
Wrap them with slice of bacon & secure with toothpick

Optional step: you can seasoned the wrapped scallops with Dizzy Pig Ragging River Rub which is my favorite rub to use on them.

Pre-heat BBQ at a temperature of 275-300 Degree Fahrenheit and cook them indirect or use Grillgrates which I find works best.

Cook them for about 20-30 minutes or until the bacon is nice and golden but be careful not to overcook the scallops inside them!

They are now ready to serve!

Bonne Appetite and Happy Grilling!
