Bacon Burnt Ends
Weber Performer Grill
Disposable Aluminum Pans
- 3 lbs Slab Bacon
- 4 tbsp Dry Rub
Set up your kettle so that the coals are lit on only one side and the vent opening of the dome is opposite the coals. Place the grill grate in and bring the grill temperature to about 300 degrees F.
Cube the bacon into 2 inch chunks then season on all sides with dry rub.
Once your kettle has reached temperature add in a few handfuls of wood chips, I like apple, cherry or hickory for this recipe.
Place Burnt Ends in a wire cooling rack on the opposite side of the coals. Cook for 1 hour.
Check color and if your happy with the color transfer to an aluminum pan, cover with foil. Continue to cook over indirect heat for another 90 minutes to 2 hrs until Bacon Burnt Ends are tender. Use a toothpick or probe thermometer to test for tenderness
