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.
