Pig Candy Recipe by Smoke on Wheels BBQ


  • Bacon (cider-cured is a great choice)
  • Dark Brown Sugar
  • Plowboys Yardbird rub
  • Cayenne / Chipotle Powder (if you want a little zing)
    • NOTE: Andy prefers normal/thin sliced bacon for this to create the best texture.


  • Mix 1 tsp each of the cayenne and chipotle powders together.
  • Spread bacon onto waxed paper, and sprinkle the plowboys rub with pepper mixture.
  • Coat liberally with brown sugar, pressing into slices evenly as you go.
  • Flip bacon and repeat.
  • Place on wire rack (coated in pan spray)
  • You can also place a pan under it to catch grease if your cooker does not drain it well.
  • Cook in 325º cooker, until bacon is cooked and brown sugar is caramelizing nicely. (20-30 min)
  • Take off of rack, and rest on waxed paper until ready to package or serve.
