Bacon Pops on a Stick w/ Old Bay Maple Glaze

Peggy Sue Ross


You will need to have the butcher cut the bacon very thick to support being on the stick. Use a smoker to slowly turn the pops into perfection. The sweet and spicy Old Bay Maple Glaze tops them off at the very end. They will be messy, but oh, so good!
