Try making candied bacon using a porter or stout. Baste & turn in the oven until crisp. You won't be disappointed!

Good call! Probably something with a high FG would be best...

I've had candied bacon done using maple syrup and brown sugar and it was delicious.

Punch a hole in the side of the coffee can base big enough to insert the tip of the iron. Cover the iron tip with the sawdust of your choice (hardwoods or fruitwoods only, please) and plug in the iron. Once the dust is smoldering, unplug the iron and add more sawdust as needed. If it goes out, plug the iron back in. You can also do this with a portable electric burner and a pie plate. If you want to get really fancy, order an Amaz-in smoker for a nearly no fuss process.
I do this ALL the time with my smoker (except I use a soup can, a 90 degree elbow, regular smoking chips and keep the soldering iron plugged in all the time.) I can do about 4-6 hours of smoking with 2 hands-full of chips. It's about as easy as it gets :-)

Oops! Left out dissolving brown sugar on the beer.

Mmmm my favorite food group. Whenever swmbo cooks bacon I will eat it right out of the skillet. Funny it doesnt even burn. I love donuts with bacon on top covered with cheddar cheese.
