Signature Bacon Rubs – BBQ Spice


Learn from the Bacon Master, Chef Jay Bogsinske, as he reveals his mouthwatering signature bacon rubs.

Take a pound or two of Smithfield Farmland Log Smoked Bacon and lay the strips on a parchment paper lined sheet pan. Lightly dust bacon with a shaking of your favorite spice rub. Saint Marc’s favorite is Apple Pie. Turn bacon and dust the other side. Bake for 14-18 minutes in a 325 degree oven on low convection. The aroma and flavor is intoxicating!
