BACON!! My family has never had better bacon than pellet cooked bacon. Set your controller to 250į and let it gently take your bacon to perfection. There is no need to flip during the cook. Usually takes about 45 mins on my pellet cooker. If after 30-40 mins itís not quite there and you are pressed for time, kick it up to 275į to finish. Soooooo good!!! We do this at least 3 Saturday mornings/month [emoji4]

I usually do some less crispy and some more crispy to keep everyone happy.

I've cooked it that way, but then hit it with brown sugar and cayenne toward the end of he cook. Bacon candy? Pig Candy? I'm sure I saw it somewhere on here.

I'm going to be making mac and cheese for a birthday party tomorrow, so I think I'll use this method to cook the bacon-thanks for reminding me to use the smoker!

How do you deal with the grease droppings? I tried this in my oven and it just destroyed the insides and door.
I really like the process but can't get by the mess.

It's a pellet pooper...tray directs all grease to a bucket.

My favorite way to cook bacon. It does make a mess but totally worth it.

I guess I am the opposite... I see it as easy and not that messy (way less messy than most other methods). I place foil on the drip tray and the grease just makes its way into the grease bucket. The little bit of grease left in the cooker burns off with my next high temp cook :)

Well on my pellet and kamado I grill as much as I smoke so the grease drippings are always carbonized. Once carbonized it takes like five seconds to clean drip pans or deflectors (quicker than using foil). Plus I believe the grease extends the life of any metal in the grill since itís seasoning.

Cookin Pellets Perfect Mix. For the past three years the only pellets I have burned have been Cookiní Pellets Perfect Mix. I have no plans of stopping, BUT I will be picking up 8 40-lb bags of LumberJack Oak pellets that I was able to grab through a group buy (a little over .40/lb)... couldnít pass it up :)
