    Sliced bacon on the 26er

    Today's experiment, sliced bacon on the 26 inch Weber kettle. I've had disastrous results trying this on the pellet grill before. Wish me luck.

    Would you like me to wish you good or bad luck?

    Good luck!


      Don't burn the BACON!


      I've done bacon on the kamado several times, turns out great!


        Grill bacon is better bacon.

          All bacon is better bacon !!!

        The finished product. Turned out pretty good but sure took a while. About 1 hour and 10 minutes. Struggled to get the grill temp up over 300. The Blackstone would have definitely been quicker...

          And probably better. The BlackStone is a bacon cooking machine.

        Did ya use any smokin woods, or jes charcoals?


          Take it up a notch- lay them slightly overlapping and when they're half cooked or so crack some eggs right on the bacon.

          Jfrosty27 This was my maiden voyage with this, you'll notice different doneness with the eggs because I was staggering the timing to find what worked best. Never got pictures of successive attempts.

            I put one chunk of hickory on top of some old charcoal before dumping the hot charcoal in there. Don't know if it made much difference. Didn't expect the cook to take so long.
