Prepare pellet smoker for indirect smoking at 350° F using hickory pellets.
Slice bacon into 1/4' thick slices or substitute extra thick cut bacon.
Place bacon slices on a greased wire rack and smoke for 10 minutes on the pellet grill.
Combine the maple syrup, 1/2 the brown sugar, cracked pepper, and ground cayenne in a small bowl.
Remove the bacon from the grill and place on a foil lined baking sheet.
Brush each slice of bacon with the maple syrup mixture.
Place the sheet pan on the smoker and cook for 45 minutes or until the bacon starts to turn brown.
Combine the remaining brown sugar, cracked pepper, and cayenne in a small bowl. Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture over each slice of bacon and return to the smoker for 5-10 minutes.
