I made it a little on the warm side this time. I started with 2 cups brown sugar, 1 cup crushed red peppers & 1/2 cup rub. I used Farmland thick sliced bacon, laid one side down in the mixture & patted it down to get an even coating on one side only. Put in smoker at 250 (rub side up!) till done, misting once an hour with AJ / JD. Then I cut each one in half & took the whole mess to a b-day party for a couple of my g-kids.
On a side note, my youngest boy was grilling burgers & hot dogs for the b-day party. I grabed a burger, put on a slice if cheese & then added three 1/2 slices of the pig candy. Beats the hell out of a bacon cheeseburger at the local drive through.
