Servings: 8 people
Remove the stems from the Brussels sprouts. Cut them in half lengthwise, remove any any excess leaves or brown spots.
Place the Brussels sprouts on a large baking sheet, and drizzle them lightly with olive oil to allow the rub to stick to them.
Add chopped bacon to the baking pan, and sprinkle Brussels sprouts and bacon with Sweet Rub.
Preheat grill to Medium-High heat (375 degrees F).
Either on your grill or stove top, preheat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Place your bacon in the skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes or until the fat is rendered and the edges have started to turn golden brown and crisp.
Lay out a large sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil. Transfer the Brussels sprouts and bacon to the foil. Create a packet by sealing the sides and top tightly. For crispy bacon and more firm sprouts, poke several holes on the top of the pouch with a fork.
Place the foil packet on the grill and grill for 20-25 minutes. Use two tongs to shake the packet 2-3 times while grilling to mix the contents of the packet. Flip the packet after 10 minutes (this is where it's extremely important that you seal the packet well)!
Remove the foil packet from the grill, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
