Bacon Jerky (Easy, Smoked, & Crazy Good)

Bacon jerky has the same amazing flavor that you get from cooked bacon, but is less crispy and will last longer when stored

– Bacon – Water – Brown sugar – Liquid smoke



Pellet Smoker

Cooling Rack

Add the liquid smoke, water, and brown sugar to a bowl and mix well. Pour this over ½lb of thick cut bacon strips placed in a gallon ziplock bag.

Place a cooling rack on top of a baking tray. Lay the bacon on the cooling rack / baking rack making sure to not overlap the bacon slices.

Just like the oven, place the bacon on a cookie sheet or directly on the smokers rack and allow to smoke for 4-6 hours. If using a smoker, you can omit the liquid smoke in the marinade.

During drying small amounts of grease might be seen on the surface of the bacon. Simply pat the grease off the bacon with a paper towel to help speed up the drying process.
