I don't think you really need to flip them. I did them low and slow, over
indirect heat, and they came out fine. If you want to use bacon, you
can always precook it a bit to speed things up.
My next attempt, I used some thin sliced chorizo, almost like a pepperoni,
and some prosciutto. Those both came out much better than the bacon!
In fact, those are what my avatar currently is!
