Not tried it myself, but I would just substitute that with a Knor chicken stock cube. Haha When I get home I will look the ingredients up in the book for you and post then on here. Something different.
Those cubes are mostly salt. I would make a homemade chicken stock instead: take the bones, skin, and neck of a roasted chicken, put in a pot of water and hold just below a simmer for a few hours. strain, skim any floating scum and fat, and use that water to mash with.

For our smoked bacon porter we use a good quality bacon, it is from a local butcher. It is a lean salt cured shoulder cut bacon. The key is as little fat as possible. We then bake the bacon @350 on parchment paper to suck up the grease. Then the bacon is added to the secondary. 1lb uncooked per 5 gallons add a nice subtle bacon flavor.

I don't want breakfast at your house!
A buddy and I drove three hours to Portland to try it at rouge's brew pub.
I couldn't finish it.
The other beers were good and our other stops were good so between that and satisfying our curiosity it was still a worth while trip.

For the syrup, for all that's holy, DON'T use the grade A crap. Go with grade B syrup if you want to actually have flavor in there. I used some grade A in a brown ale and couldn't even tell it was there. Now all I use is grade B (stuff tastes so much better/stronger than grade A) for anything/everything I use maple syrup with/in. I'm about to bottle my 14% maple mead/wine that used all grade B syrup. Smelled divine while in process (a full year). I would occasionally vent the aging vessel (an adapted sanke keg) and the smell coming out of it made my mouth water. Once I see how this batch came out, I plan to mix up another. I have around 9-11 quarts of the syrup on hand still (so sue me ) so I should be good for a 3-4 gallon batch of any strength I wish.

How long do you leave the beer in secondary on the bacon? And how "subtle" is the flavor?

I was at the brewpub so I gave it to my buddy. He didn't like it either but he hates to see beer go to waste and he drinks Busch at home. He drank one and a half of those nasty things.
The next time I went to a Rouge brew pub they had another Voodoo beer.
Banana peanut butter? I don't remember but this time the bartender gave us each one of the sample glasses. Not good. Pissed off one of the bartenders in there good while I being me. By accident. She ignored us the rest of the night.

The good news is that the second time we went to a Rouge brew pub we also had other entertainment lined up and all was good.
When we get out of town, we have to line up as much fun as we can have. Life in a small town.

I've come to the conclusion that Rouge brew pubs aren't worth the effort.
They range from strange and nasty beer to pretty good. Above average in fact. Great seems to elude them though. They do charge like it's great.
