This delicious Pig Candy recipe combines sweet and savory for a delicious, maple-bacon treat.
- 1 lb thick cut peppered bacon
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Arrange the bacon strips on a broiler pan.
Combine brown sugar and cayenne pepper in a bowl and set aside.
Warm up the grill to around 300-350 degrees.
Place the broiler pan with the bacon on the grill and cook for about 15 minutes, then flip the bacon.

Coat the bacon with the maple syrup on both sides and cook for another 5-10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like it.
Remove from grill, let cool, then serve.
