Units of Measurement:
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon ground fennel
2 Teaspoon kosher salt
1 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 Pound pork belly or slab bacon, diced into 1-inch cubes


  • 1

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 350°F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

    350 ˚F / 177 ˚C

  • 2

    Fold a 12-inch x 36-inch piece of aluminum foil in half and crimp the edges so there is a rim. Using a fork, poke holes in the bottom of the foil. This way, some of the bacon fat will be rendered out and the bacon bites will be crisp.

  • 3

    In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, ground fennel, salt and black pepper. Stir to combine. Place the diced pork belly into the sugar mixture and toss until well-coated. Transfer the pork pieces to the foil.

  • 4

    Place the foil directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and bake until the pieces are crispy, glazed and bubbly about 20-30 minutes.

    350 ˚F / 177 ˚C

    Remove the bacon bites from the grill and serve warm. Enjoy!
