a different Bacon discussion.

Making ABT's recently, my family discovered that the bacon that wraps the peppers is about the best ever. Anyone ever cook store bought bacon right across the grate?

  • No, but I have cooked it on a griddle on the grill.  Works great.

    Pig candy. Lay out your bacon and sprinkle with turbinado sugar and cayenne. Go indirect with a drip pan at 400* flipping once until it's crispy.

    Edit: If you just want beautiful cooked bacon omit sugar and cayenne

  • I cooked some right on the grate last night to put on some venison burgers. I did it indirect at 400 dome. It smoked like a freight train and I had to keep an eye on it so the ends hanging over the plate setter didn't burn, but it was some tasty bacon when it was done. I did have to let the bacon grease burn off for a few minutes before I put the burgers on.

    I do it all the time.  If you keep it around 300 on an indirect cook it is hot enough to cook the bacon evenly and in reasonable time - but not typically hot enough to get a grease fire on the platesetter.  Depending on how much I am cooking I sometimes use a drip pan the is not directly sitting on the platesetter (elevated by foil balls) to catch the grease.  It is the best bacon I've ever had.

    I've cooked it folded back and forth on skewers and that went over big.
  • Thanks!
    I forgot to mention that the strips closer to the edge will cook faster so when you turn exchange the furthest out to the closest in.
