@megburk: I thought that sounded like a lot of Worcestershire, so I watched the video. Martha uses 1/3c in the video. As she says, leaving the shells on just adds to the eating "experience" - using your hands. I would think that the shell would impart flavor. However, you must lose a lot of the "bbq" sauce this way, so peeled might be better if you really want to get a good amount of sauce. Also, more fork friendly!

Will this be as good with peeled shrimp? Also, 1/2 cup worcestshire sauce seems like it would overpower the dish. IS that the correct amount? I am quite the novice so any advice would be helpful! Thanks!
