How to Grill Bacon VIDEO

Can you grill Bacon? Yes, this is something every griller will try at least once but, I do not recommend grilling raw bacon without use of a pan or bacon grilling rack. Throwing uncooked bacon directly onto your grills grates will cause quite a mess inside your grill that you will be cleaning for hours.

Instead there is a much simpler solution.

Pre-cooked bacon. Pre-cooked bacon is readily available and if you don’t want to pay the extra cost for it you can cook regular bacon before tossing it onto the grill. For our video we used Hormel black label thick cut bacon.

Grilling pre-cooked bacon is simple and quick.

Pre-heat your grill to high heat, once your grill is good and hot place the strips of bacon directly on the heat. Wait about a minute until you see the fat bubbling out of the top, then flip. After another minute or so (the fat bubbles should be covering most of the bacon by now) flip the bacon again. In another minute remove the bacon and place between two paper towels blot dry and eat.

Do not close the grills lid or leave the bacon unattended.

This will result in a very crispy bacon with additional grilled flavor. A perfect topping for a cheese burger. Quick and easy.
