Aw, yeah, baby … you read it right: today we put the world’s BEST bacon hot sauce (bar none!) on our bacon!

 

Introducing: Porcus Candied Bacon Strips!

Porcus-Candied-Bacon

In addition to Porcus Infernum hot sauce (click here to buy), here’s what you’ll need:

  • 20160131_143535* 1 lb THICK CUT bacon
  • * 1 bottle Porcus Infernum (the world’s best bacon hot sauce)
  • * 1/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar (may need 1/2 C or more, so have extra on hand)
  • * 1 Tbsp Dark Brown Sugar
  • * 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • * 4 Tbsp dark beer (we used an imperial stout from Adroit Theory Brewing)
  • * 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup

For starters, let’s pre-heat the oven to 350F.

 

Next, gently pat down each slice of bacon with a decent layer of brown sugar, on both sides.

Although I’ve done it with as little as 1/4 Cup, it’s quite easy to use plenty more! EXTRA CREDIT: for extra hot version, sprinkle some Thai Dry onto each side of each strips of the bacon that you want hotter.

 

Place the bacon strips on the cooling rack(s) and place in the oven for 10 minutes, then flip and allow to cook for another 5~10 minutes. While doing the first stage of cooking the bacon, take the other ingredients (Porcus Infernum, beer, Maple syrup, and 1 Tbsp of brown sugar) and whisk together well.

Once the fat starts rendering (about 15 minutes or so) it’s time to start the basting routine:

Every 5~7 minutes, turn the bacon and lightly baste with the Porcus & beer

Continue flipping every 5~7 minutes until done (approximately 35~45 minutes).

Once cooled, grab your favorite beer and . . .
