Combine brown sugar and ground chili pepper in a small bowl and set aside.
Hold both ends of the bacon and start twisting the bacon onto itself.
Once the bacon is twisted, sprinkle the brown sugar/chili pepper mix. Don't overdue it as too much will turn the bacon into candied bacon, rather than adding a little bit of sweetness/spice. Cover the pan you are using with bacon so no grease drips onto the grill and cause flare ups.
Place bacon twists on the grill and cook until desired doneness, between 30-40 minutes.
Hot Spots on Grill: Rotate location on grill: If there are hot spots on the grill, keep rotating the bacon so you don't have burned bacon in some spots and under done bacon in other spots. Pan Choice: Make sure the pan you use has a small lip as the bacon fat will render and you don't want it to spill over onto the fire. Bacon Choice: Using thin bacon allows you to twist the bacon tight. If you use thick bacon, it is much harder. If you use the thinnest bacon you can find, you can twist two pieces together. Rub Choice: Feel free to use the rub of your choice or keep it plain for a ramped up addition to a breakfast feast from the grill. Grill Temperature: Bacon fat smoke point is around 370 degrees, so using 350 degrees allows a great temperature to cook yet not burn. Why Twist: Typically, a slice of bacon is close to one inch wide, which limits the amount you can add to your pan without overlapping. When the bacon is twisted, it becomes about ¼" wide, which allows you to add a lot more to the skillet and cook a whole package more quickly. Don't over twist as it does make it longer, which is counter intuitive.Softer Bacon Choice: Use the technique we tried of putting the bacon straight on the sheet pan with NO baking rack. This will allow the bacon to stay softer.Preventing Grill Flare Ups: Using indirect heat and also using a sheet pan with baking rack to ensure that the bacon grease doesn't drip onto the coals + fire is the big key here. If you haven't tried indirect heating before, make sure to give this a quick read even if you aren't using a Kamado grill.
