Bacon Wrapped Shrimp and Steak Kabobs on the Grill

So many things I make for dinner don't involve recipes... and this is one of them.  So simple but so yummy!

Shrimp - the larger the better
Salt and Pepper
Oil or Pam Spray
Metal or Wood skewers

If you use wood skewers, soak them in water before using so they don't burn over the fire.
The bigger the shrimp the better because little shrimp cook too fast - before the bacon is done.  Then you end up with little leather shrimp and tasty bacon.
I cut our bacon either in half or into thirds depending on the size of the shrimp I'm using that day.
Wrap tightly and then thread on a skewer.
I've partially pre-cooked the bacon before and it works 'fine' but you also have to wait for it to cool down before you can handle it to wrap the shrimp.  As long as my shrimp are good sized, I don't usually pre-cook the bacon anymore.
Cut up the steak into 1  inch pieces and thread on the skewers. I usually put them on different skewers because they never cook at the same rate.
Drizzle with oil of choice or spray with Pam.
Season with salt and pepper.
Cook over a medium hot grill - turning as needed and placing the ones cooking 'fast' to the side and moving so they are all cooking at the same rate.  When the bacon is crisp and done, the shrimp and steak are too.  Bacon takes the longest to cook.  

Metal skewers are pretty darn cheap and available through Amazon;
