Bacon Bits, June 25, 2023

Dear bacon lovers,

Why does everything taste better cooked and eaten outside? Scientists say it’s because our sense of smell is heightened outdoors (vs. the often dry, stale air we breathe inside). Food also looks more vibrant and appealing in natural light.

As you might expect, bacon cooked over a campfire or grill tastes incredible! The smoky flavors of bacon are taken to new heights of deliciousness, and everyone in your group will be happy.

We’ve got full directions for grilling, smoking and cooking bacon outside, plus tasty recipes that are perfect for your July 4th celebrations and cookouts.

Stay sizzling,

Eliza Cross

How to Cook Bacon on the Grill

You’re going to LOVE the smoky flavor of bacon cooked on the grill. When the tasty strips are cooked outside over an open flame, bacon gets wonderfully crispy and even more delicious from exposure to the smoke of the grill.

Plus, the heavenly aroma is going to have everyone within five miles running over for tasty bacon!

Cook the Best Bacon on Your Pellet Grill or Traeger

Bacon cooked over the wood smoke of a pellet grill like a Traeger, Pit Boss or Camp Chef is smoky, crispy and amazingly flavorful.

Thick-sliced bacon cooks low and slow on the grill so the texture is crisp and tender, never tough. The smoke from the pellet grill adds another layer of flavor that is simply incredible.
