Line 2 baking sheets with foil. Place a wire cooling rack on each. Lay bacon on wire racks leaving a half inch of space in between the slices.
Cook bacon for 15 minutes. Bacon will be darker in color but still be floppy.
While bacon is cooking, stir together the rest of the ingredients in a bowl.
When the 15 minutes has passed. Take the bacon out of the oven and, using a basting brush, coat bacon with the sugar mixture and return to oven. Cook five minutes.
After the five minutes have passed, take the bacon out and flip. Apply another coat of sugar mixture to the other side of the bacon and cook another five minutes.
Repeat this process until the bacon is cooked to your liking and is coated in candied sugary goodness!°
*Alternatively, you could put the bacon in a smoker for the initial 15 minutes of cook time at 350°F. If you choose to use the smoker, make sure it is only for that first 15 minutes. Any more will overwhelm the bacon with smoke flavor.
