Bacon jerky

A friend mentioned that she had had some bacon jerky and it was wonderful. Unfortunately, she never found it in a store again.

So, since we can use our toaster oven as a dehydrator, we would like to try making this. Stirling googled and found this video. What do people think? Suggestions, corrections, and tips from people with experience with making jerky, especially bacon jerky, would be great.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

First... I have never made jerky.. That said, this seems like something I'd try..

Finished product doesn't look too much like "jerky" but, sure looks worth a try.. If it doesn't come put totally like jerky, hey... Its bacon and sriracha and honey.. win/win/win

Disclaimer: My experiences may not be as someone else might think correct.. Life goes on..

I've never made bacon jerky, but I have made bacon candy. That video recipe looks pretty similar to bacon candy, but at a lower temperature (I do bacon candy at 350). I like maple syrup on mine, or a mix of maple syrup and brown sugar. I haven't tried any kind of hot sauce, but it actually sounds good -- I will try that in the future. Probably just a little hot sauce.

I do the same thing with pecans in the winter, around xmas.
