How to Make Candied Bacon

After letting the bacon rest overnight in maple syrup, the key is to smoke the strips of bacon at 225°F for 30 minutes on each side.

Note: It is recommended to use Competition Blend Hardwood Pellets with this recipe.

This recipe uses Pit Boss Mandarin Habanero seasoning.

  1. Place the bacon in a deep dish. Add the maple syrup, cover and refrigerate 2 - 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Start your Grill on ''smoke'' with the lid open until a fire is established in the burn pot (3-7 minutes). Preheat to 225°F.
  3. When the grill has preheated, place the bacon directly on the cooking grids and sprinkle with brown sugar and Mandarin Habanero. Check every 15-20. After 30 minutes, flip and rotate bacon and baste with syrup. Allow to hot smoke for another 20 to 30 minutes or until the bacon is done to your desired liking.
  4. Allow to cool on a rack and serve.
  5. Can be refrigerated in an airtight container.
