Bacon Question

I am making bacon using a dry cure, and then fry test, smoke to 150 IT; rest for a day and slice method (my usual method).

Question - I did Jeff's Smoked Maple-Brined Turkey for Thanksgiving and loved the mop sauce.

Since it is only maple syrup mixed with Jeff's Original Rub can I put that on my bacon before smoking? Will it give me a maple hint to the bacon or am I just wasting my time?

Yes you can definitely use that before smoking, you could also use it in the dry cure.

And yes it will give the bacon a maple flavor.
