Honey Heat Candied Bacon! ⁣


• 1 pound of thick-cut bacon⁣
• Caribeque Honey Heat Rub (to taste)⁣


1. Preheat your smoker to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (163 degrees Celsius) and set it up for indirect grilling. Make sure to use a mild wood flavor that complements the bacon, such as apple or maple.⁣

2. Lay out the bacon slices on a baking sheet or a wire rack, ensuring they are evenly spaced and not overlapping.⁣

3. Generously sprinkle the Caribeque Honey Heat Rub on one side of each bacon slice. The rub will provide the sweetness and the desired heat for your candied bacon. Adjust the amount of rub according to your taste preferences.⁣

4. Once the smoker reaches the desired temperature, place the bacon directly on the grill grates or use a grill mat to prevent sticking. Close the lid and let the bacon cook for approximately 25-30 minutes.⁣

5. After the first 15 minutes, check on the bacon and flip each slice over. Apply a light sprinkle of Caribeque Honey Heat Rub to the other side of the bacon slices.⁣

6. Continue cooking the bacon for an additional 10-15 minutes or until it reaches your desired level of crispness. Keep a close eye on it to prevent burning.⁣

7. Once the bacon is done, remove it from the pellet smoker and transfer it to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess grease.⁣

8. Allow the candied bacon to cool for a few minutes before serving. The Caribeque Honey Heat Rub will caramelize on the bacon, giving it a delightful sweet and spicy flavor.⁣

9. Serve the candied bacon as a delicious appetizer, snack, or accompaniment to breakfast dishes.⁣

Enjoy your homemade Honey Heat candied bacon!
