Campfire Beer-Candied Bacon
Thick slices of bacon are slathered with a spicy, sugary beer sauce and roasted over a smoky campfire for breakfast heaven!
- 1 lb. thick-cut bacon
- 1/2 cup IPA beer
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 t. black pepper
- 1 t. crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/2 to 1 t. cayenne pepper
- roasting sticks
Build a campfire with a hot bed of coals.
Weave bacon strips onto skewers, leaving a little space between folds.
Shake beer, sugar, and spices in a jar until sugar dissolves. Brush mixture generously over bacon strips.
Cook over the fire for 5 minutes, then brush with more beer sauce. Flames will flare up from the dripping grease.
Continue cooking, rotating every 5 minutes & brushing with more beer sauce, until bacon is done.
