My New Favorite Way to Cook Bacon — In a Traeger Grill
Almost every man loves bacon, and if they don't, you can make the argument they might not be really a man. Everyone loves bacon, and I am one of those guys that would just about die if bacon went away. I have always cooked bacon in a pan on the stove or even over a fire, but the other day I got an idea.
I took the entire slab of bacon and put it in the Traeger without breaking the slices apart. I put it in an aluminum boat so the grease would build up and fry it slowly. I turned the heat to 210 degrees for about an hour, then flip it over and turn the heat up to 450 degrees. After I flipped it over, I cooked it for another 30 minutes to let the bacon crisp up.
The end result was some of the best bacon I have ever eaten. It was crispy but still pulled apart kinda like burnt ends from pulled pork.
Is it worth one and a half hours to cook? I say...YES! For sure!
