Directions

Cook the bacon in a large pizza  pan medium 350 indirect feet up heat until the fat has rendered and the bacon starts to get crispy and set aside, reserving 1 tablespoon of the grease in the pan.

Add the onions and saute until tender, about 5-7 minutes.

Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about a minute.

Add the vinegar and deglaze the pan.

Add the coffee, brown sugar, maple syrup, bourbon, bacon, chipotle chilies, cumin and pepper, balsamic, reduce the heat and simmer until reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 1-2 hours.

Process the jam in a food processor to smooth it out a bit but not too much as you want to have the texture of the bacon.
