What about faking the bacon? Smoke some malt over hickory. I bought a bottle of Bakon and I really liked it. You could use that if you didn't want to make your own. I did end up making my own, I cooked the bacon in a pan until it was crispy, then just tossed a few strips in the vodka and let it sit for a week. It wasn't over powering.
I'm surprised no ones mentioned Rogues Voodoo Doughnut Ale.

At $13 for 750ml bottle I'll pass. The donut I'll eat next time I'm near Voodoo, if the surly server will handle my request.

If you want to get a certain flavor, like maple, add it when you bottle. Maple syrup is sugar and yeast will have its way with it. So if you add it at bottling the flavor of the maple will come through better.

If you want bacon flavor just use a smoked malt. Get the smoked malt...bacon in beer is a waste of perfectly good bacon. Really...bacon beer is stupid...Smoked pork does not belong in beer, it belongs in your gut.

I second the just smoke malt over hickory. People refer to my smoked porter as bacon beer all of the time. People link flavor associations. The brewing networked interviewed Alaskan Brewery. People think their beer tastes like smoked fish (Alder wood smoked grains). If you smoked with apple people would probably think you had a sausage beer. The same goes for pumpkin pie beer, people only want to taste pumpkin pie spices so don't bother with the pumpkin.

Easy to do with a charcoal grill. Mist the grains with a spray bottle to lightly dampen. Smoke sticks to wet grains easier, however wet grains can grow mold/get funky. So just lightly mist before smoking. Put grain is a stainless steal mesh, I used a screen door screen. Soak the Hickory in water so they smoke more than they would burn. Takes about 15-20 minutes. Pull grains off to cool down. Make sure that you don't burn the gains. Although a few burnt kernels isn't that big of a deal if you are making a porter.

I love the idea, but how do you calculate the right amount? Since this would be in place of priming sugar, I would prefer to get it right instead of having my first bottle bombs! Is there a rule to go by here?

Wasn't really an issue since it only took 4ozs of Torriani Maple syrup for the 5gal batch to make a notable presence.
