I used to frequent Sara Moulton's cooking board, until EZboard was hacked. There was one lady in Georgia that always had fantastic recipes. She said when she had a brunch, she cooked her bacon on the gas grill. I believe she said that she put them on a piece of foil with holes punched in the bottom.
My husband says that would make a terrible mess on the grill, with all the dripping grease. Have any of you tried cooking bacon this way?

Constance, I remember being at the Weber Grill store (standing in line to by my grill) and I saw them grilling bacon - However, they had a special tray I think, it was years ago so I don't remember it very well. I have put mine on George Foreman grill and it works great. I don't know if you have one or not, but try it if you do.

Bacon grilling does *not* work unless you use a drip tray. I know this, because I had a *heck* of a fire going on my Ducane one time because I thought it would be a good idea to try it. You should have seen the flames licking up!

It also makes the bacon black from all the smoke, which aesthetically is *not* pleasing.

Wow. I never would've guessed that there were so many people interested in the subject of baking bacon!



I was just happy to do it...

Dude, bacon rocks! I echo Emeril's saying that "pork fat rules." For me, bacon is at the top of that list!

It's almost true: bacon makes everything better.

The one glaring counterexample: the bacon-tini.

Don't do it. It's bad. Real bad. I was really drunk. And it was still really bad.

But other than that, it's hard to miss with bacon - mmmm

Think I'll put some in the casserole I'm makin tonight! lol

Iron Chef Cat Cora even made Bacon Ice Cream, and the judges liked it!

Bacon-tini? I don't think I want to know . . . . .

I can't think of anything that adding some bacon to wouldn't work . . . . . but I'm not trying all that hard either . . . . .

Crispy oven baked bacon is a favourite of my brothers, and he still does something that we started as kids, sprinkling a little icing sugar on top before you put it in the oven. It is excellent this way, and a must for all who love maple syrup over their bacon.

Some chef-dude was telling me basically the same thing at the bar last night. He drizzles maple syrup over the top, and it turns into some sorta glaze....
