    Hey all, I've wanted to try bacon jerky for a real long time.... today, I finally got around to it!

    Had a package of Dailey's bacon in the freezer, yea not my own... but Dailey's is a good bacon that's local to the region!

    Sliced the slab in half!

    While gettin the bacon ready, the GMG was gettin warmed up to 175* with Apple pellets!

    Spread out the bacon on some QMats, fit em in there pretty tight... but figured the bacon is gonna shrink up a bit so no big deal!

    While the bacon was slowly workin on gettin to the jerky state, I made up a glaze for half the pieces... A Sriracha Honey glaze... 2 TBSP Sriracha sauce & 1 TBSP honey!

    Bout an hour & a half, turned the future bacon jerky! Actually turned it a couple times, blotting off the grease with each turn!

    Let it go bout another 20 min & blotted again, then with half brushed on the Sriracha honey mixture... The other half were left unseasoned!

    After putting on the glaze, turned the temp down to 165*. The bacon jerky then went for another half hour, then turned again... Another glaze of Sriracha honey on the half seasoned before! Then let it go another half hour... Blotted lightly & plated up....

    The non seasoned bacon jerky...

    Looks delicious Justin!! Since it seems from that one pic that you can still bend the bacon, the texture shiuld be great.
    Goitta admit though that's way too much sriracha for this child. LOL.
