Smoking bacon (slices)

Hello All, new to the board. I recently bought an XL BGE and can safely say I am an addict. I am making ribs today (smoke applewood chips). I also bought some bacon slices at my butcher and wondering what everyone's method would be for cooking (how long, rub/no rub? etc...). It will be on with the ribs (at some point during the cook). Thank you.

    i don't have a link to it but pig candy is awesome the recepie is

    bacon
    brown sugar
    cyanne pepper

    combine the sugar and cyanne rub on bacon cook indirect at 250-275 until it is of your liking (doneness) remove from egg and place on a cooling rack they will stifin up as they cool. do not try to eat them right off the egg you will burn your mouth..

    sorry i dont have better directions that was from memory B-)

  • That works very well. Very much appreciated. Didn't think of brown sugar, and I will give it a try. Thank you.

  • So I burnt the bacon (no pics). However, the pieces that I didn't burn (not much) came out great. Thank you for the help and I will post pics in the future, just didn't want the first ones to be charred/burnt bacon. Ribs came out great, but were eaten before pics could be taken.

    You have to cook at a lower temp because all the sugar will burn - as you found out. Try it indirect a little slower and lower!
  • Was low and slow, but unfortunately, so was I - and this is why I had burnt bacon. Experience is life's best teacher. :-D
