    I was Smart & Final looking for some Tri-Tips for tomorrow and they had some bacon on sale so I figured why not. I have never seen or used this brand but it looks great, nice and thick. So I fired up the Rec Tec this morning for the initial burn-in while I got the bacon ready.

    I coated the bacon with the only real maple syrup I could find and added a little white pepper.  Set the smoker to 250 and flipped the bacon at 1 hour. It's still on the smoker so I will post a picture of the final product in a pit.

    1 hour in

    It ended up being just a little under two hours.

    Looks good and it looks like you ate half of it before you got it out of the smoker.  [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I admit there was a sample piece or two missing, but just forgot to take a picture before I started pulling it off.

    Awesome. This might have to happen this weekend. It looks delicious and I just happen to have a bunch of maple syrup my grandma just brought back from Vermont.

    That looks good. I too wondered, " How many Samples " it took to know it was done?[​IMG]...JJ
