Many praline bacon recipes call for nuts but we find that the crunch of well cooked bacon is all you need for texture.
  • 1 lb. Sliced Bacon
  • 1/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Maple Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Chipotle Chili Powder (or to taste)
  • Grill Topper or Cast Iron Griddle (our preference)
  1. Set up Grill for indirect cooking and stabilize at 350°F.
  2. Mix Sugars and Chili Powder. Set aside. (Or add to a shaker for even distribution.)
  3. Add bacon to griddle in 1 layer and cook until fat starts to render. Pour off fat and return bacon to grill.
  4. Sprinkle sugar mixture evenly to the top of the bacon and continue to cook (be careful here, the sugar can burn easily).
  5. Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes before serving.
