Crown Royal Maple Bacon Pig Candy


1/2 pound thinly sliced bacon

1 cup Crown Royal Maple Whiskey

1 cup light brown sugar

1 -3 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust for your heat preference)

1/4 tsp finely ground black pepper

In a plastic container or glass bowl pour the whiskey over the bacon. Make sure the bacon is fully submerged and place in the fridge overnight.

The following day in a small bowl mix the brown sugar, cayenne and black pepper.

Preheat your oven to 350F or your grill to 250F/300F (Indirect)

If using an oven : Line a baking sheet with foil and place a baking rack over the tray. Spray baking rack with non stick spray. Place the bacon strips on the baking tray and sprinkle on the brown sugar/pepper mixture.

If using a BBQ or grill indirect- try frogmats. Or you can still use the baking sheet & foil combo as above.

Times will vary – in the oven approx 20-30 minutes or on the grill indirect approx 45 minutes to an hour until the brown sugar has been thoroughly absorbed and the bacon crisps

When you remove from the oven or grill let the bacon rest for 1 hour to dry out. Fantastic in so many things or on its own.
