Ingredients
  

  • 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

Instructions
 

  • 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.
