Cooking with Grunt Style: Candied Bacon

On this episode of Cooking with Grunt Style, we will teach you how to make glorious candied bacon.

Prep Time – 5 minutes

Marination Time – 15 minutes

Cook Time – 15 minutes


Brown Sugar – 1 pound per pound of bacon

Black Pepper – to taste

Thick Cut Bacon – Enough is never enough, but use the 1 pound bacon to 1 pound brown sugar ratio

Secret ingredient #4 explained below



Charcoal or Propane tank, depending on the grill

Large mixing bowl



1.  Prepare your grill for direct cooking and mix your brown sugar and black pepper in a large bowl.

2.  Add half strips of bacon to the bowl, tossing the mixture to coat the bacon. Cover the bowl to allow the brown sugar to liquify, producing a glaze over the bacon. While you wait it’s time for special ingredient #4, so crack open your favorite brew.

3.  Start loading the bacon onto the grill; flipping it frequently to avoid burning and enjoy more of ingredient #4.

4.  The bacon is done when it is a deep red color, approximately 15 minutes. Ensure you enjoy this quickly as anyone that smells it may try to steal your candied bacon. However, at this point your ingredient #4 container should be empty and can be used to ward off the would-be thieves that will try to steal your candied bacon.
