Videos: Bacon Bites

Chef Tom cooks up the famous bacon bite recipe from BBQ Brian Misko’s “Grilling with House of Q” cookbook. A slab of cured bacon, cut into large strips and smoked, and then then direct grilled before being sliced into cubes. Delicious!

Bacon Bites


  • 2 lb slab bacon
  • Mustard, for binder
  • Plowboys BBQ Yardbird Rub
  • House of Q Apple Butter BBQ Sauce


Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 pellet smoker to 250ºF.

Slice the bacon into 1” wide slabs. Rub all surfaces with a small amount of mustard. Season all surfaces with Plowboys BBQ Yardbird Rub. Let set up for 5-10 minutes.

Smoke bacon slabs until the internal temperature reaches 200ºF (about 75-90 minutes). Turn the cooker up to 400ºF, then brush the slabs with House of Q Apple Butter BBQ Sauce and move the bacon directly over the firebox. Cook another 15 minutes. Remove from cooker. Rest 5 minutes. Slice into cubes for servings.
