Default Pig Candy (again)

I joined this site because it offered a diverse variety of Q options and methods. I had become set in my ways and made the same rubs, marinades and recipes for whatever I cooked. Which is usually some form of game animal, hogs being the most frequent with wild sheep, goats and the occasional Axis deer thrown in. So I delved in with an open mind and feel like a kid in a candy store.

I saw and thread relating to HDD and decided to give "store bought" a try. What a revelation that was. I ordered it a couple of days ago and recieved it the afternoon. Since there is a lot of heavy rain today (freeway was closed with 8" of water "ponding" on it) my only option to try it out was the oven. So I pulled out some maple cured bacon and decided to make pig candy.

Sprinkled some HDD on both sides of the bacon followed by brown sugar. Placed in on a rack over a pan and set it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. Flipped them over and baked for another 25 minutes or so until the sugar was carmelized and the edges were slightly browned. Then came the hardest part, waiting 10 minutes for it to cool.

AWESOME, is the only thing that I can think of. There were no leftovers to refrigerate.

I am going to a pre-Xmas party this Sunday and i'm going to make this for my buddies. The first piece of bacon is free, after that they'll have to pay!
If God didn't want man to eat animals. He wouldn't have made them out of MEAT!

I made some this past Thanksgiving but made the mistake of pulling it off too quick, it wasn't as crisp as some of the earlier batches I have made but I sure didn't hear any complaints and there was none left over. I had a family reunion and there were 23 people and the fun part was that none of them knew what Pig Candy was and the other was teaching them how to make it. Lots of smiling happy faces.
