Those two little words got your attention, didn’t they?? Well if they didn’t, try BACON candy!

I met Danielle (Diva Q) at the American Royal BBQ Contest last fall, and even sort of broke my way into the Traeger tent to get a pic snapped with her. (Pinned here: https://twitter.com/ConnieBeene1) I promptly put this recipe book on my Christmas list:

I made a couple of edits to the original recipe, cuz that’s what I always do, and I’m sharing it below. We made more today to share at work, but in actuality, not sure it’ll make it that far. Words of caution….super easy to burn it on the smoker (or grill), so keep it low and check it often. Diva’s original recipe says to use chipotle powder, but take it easy, because it’s POTENT! We used this on the batch today, and it came out delish also :

A delicious option from the Kosmos family of BBQ goodies

Pig Candy

Ingredients

1 lb thin sliced bacon
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1.5 cups brown sugar
1 tbsp chipotle powder (or to taste), or your choice of BBQ seasonings

Directions

Place the bacon slices in a single layer on a large disposable, perforated aluminum pan. Brush each bacon slice with maple syrup. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar, then chipotle powder or your favorite BBQ rub/spice.

Place the pan on the grill (approx 350 degrees) and grill until the bacon has absorbed the brown sugar and is crispy, about 1 hour. Remove the bacon from the pan and place in a single layer on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet. Set aside at room temperature until the surface of the bacon is dry, or close to it. If you have any left at this point (doubtful), refrigerate in an airtight container with parchment paper between the layers and use within 1 week.
