How to make Candied Bacon or “Pig Candy”

It's spooky season, which means it's also candy season! That's why Chef Tom has fired up the Yoder Smokers YS640s Pellet Grill for a Candied Bacon or "Pig Candy" recipe that's way more treat than trick!


Candied Bacon or “Pig Candy”


Ingredients

  • 1 lb thick cut bacon
  • Blues Hog Raspberry Chipotle BBQ Sauce
  • 3/4 cup Noble Saltworks Smoked Maple Turbinado Sugar
  • Killer Hogs TX Brisket Rub

Instructions

Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640s Pellet Grill to 275ºF, set up for smoking.

 

Arrange the bacon on a rack over a foil lined sheet pan. The edges of the bacon may touch or slightly overlap.

 

Brush the bacon with a thin layer of Blues Hog Raspberry Chipotle BBQ Sauce.

 

Cover the surface of the bacon generously with Noble Saltworks Smoked Maple Turbinado Sugar, then season with a light layer of Killer Hogs TX Brisket Rub.

 

Transfer the pan of bacon to the second shelf of the grill. Cook until the sugar is melted into the bacon and the bacon is slightly crispy, about one hour and thirty to one hour and forty-five minutes.
