Step 1

Soak grilling wood for at least 30 minutes. Put the Grilling wood on one side of the grill and replace the grate. Oil the grate and heat the grill.

Step 2

In a small bowl, mix together the Bourbon Smoked Sugar, Pure Cane Sorghum, and Bourbon.

Step 3

Cover each strip of bacon with the Bourbon Smoked Sugar and Sorghum mixture. Place the strips of bacon on the side of the grill that is not directly over the Grilling Wood. Grill for 5 or so minutes on each side. When taking the bacon off the grill, place it on parchment instead of paper towels (the bacon will stick to paper towels).

Step 4

For the oven:

Heat oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment. Cover each strip of bacon with the candy covering. Bake for 20-30 minutes, and place the bacon on parchment.
