What Are You Going To Need?

To start things off, you are going to need ingredients to make the crackers and of course some toppings. In this section, we are going to take a look at what you are going to need to make delicious spicy paleo maple bacon crackers. 

Everything you are going to need has been listed below:

  • One Sleeve of Club-Style Crackers or Your Favorite Crackers
  • One Pound of Bacon
  • Half a Cup of Dark Brown Sugar
  • A Quarter Cup of Hey Grill Hey Sweet Rub

Bear in mind that you can change up some of your ingredients to suit your tastes and preferences. 

Step-By-Step Instructions 

In this section, we are going to show you everything you need to know about making a delicious batch of spicy paleo maple bacon crackers. 

1. Get Your Oven Preheated

The first thing you need to do is preheat your oven. It should be at 250 degrees Fahrenheit (ca. 121 degree Celsius) before you put anything in the oven. 

2. Get Your Crackers Ready 

You need to prepare your crackers for baking. For starters, you should arrange your crackers on a flat roasting rack located just above the baking sheet. 

3. Place The Bacon On The Crackers

Your bacon should be cut up into little pieces and fit nicely on your crackers. In fact, they should be a little bigger than the crackers.

Simply place each of your pieces of bacon on a cracker, making sure that they do not overlap too much. 

4. Season Your Crackers

It is not up to you to add a seasoning of choice to your crackers. We recommend that you start with maple syrup or brown sugar.

Regardless of which one you choose, distribute it evenly across the bacon before you sprinkle some sweet BBQ rub or chili flakes on top. 

5. Allow Your Crackers And Bacon To Cook

Place your flat roasting rack from the baking sheet to the smoker. Make sure that the smoker lid is closed before you leave.

Now you need to allow your bacon crackers to smoke for about ninety minutes. Feel free to check your bacon crackers at the sixty-minute mark. 

In essence, you are looking for your bacon fat to be rendered and the brown sugar or maple syrup to be entirely dissolved into the meat.

You can cook the bacon for longer or shorter, depending on what you prefer your bacon to be cooked to. For example, we prefer delicious little crispy pieces of bacon. 

6. Allow The Bacon Crackers To Cool And Eat Up

Your delicious paleo maple bacon crackers should be done and ready to eat. Just allow them to cool completely before you eat them.

You can eat them on their own or with toppings of your choice, we love them with a little sprinkling of fresh chilies. It adds just a little zing to this delicious snack.
