  • ½ lb bacon thick cut
  • ¼ cup brown sugar optional


  • Pre-heat smoker to 200°F. Rub brown sugar on bacon if wanting a sweet bacon. If not, omit the sugar. Place bacon directly on smoker rack or on a cooling rack atop a baking dish.
  • Smoke for 30 minutes and then increase the temperature to 400°F. Smoke another 15 to 20 minutes until bacon is crispy.
  • Remove bacon from smoker and plate. Enjoy!
