Trenholm Venom Caramelized Bacon

12 strips thick-cut bacon
1 bottle Trenholm Venom hot sauce
2/3 cup demerara or coarse brown sugar

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Pour hot sauce into a long, shallow dish. Pour sugar into a separate long, shallow dish. Drag each strip of bacon through the Trenholm Venom hot sauce and then roll it in the sugar to coat it lightly.

Place each strip of sauced and sugared bacon on large sheet pan with sides. Cook the bacon in the oven for 12-15 minutes until bacon is caramelized. Drain on a wire rack. Bacon will crisp as it cools.
