  3.  Sprinkle Touch of Cherry BBQ Rub onto the bacon, pressing it into the bacon to be sure it adheres.
  4.  Bake for 8 minutes, or until very lightly brown. Take the bacon out of the oven and brush the top side of the bacon with maple syrup. Return to the oven to bake for an additional 2-3 minutes. After the 3-minute mark, flip the bacon over, and sprinkle the bacon with the Touch of Cherry BBQ Rub.
  5.  Return to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Brush the top side with maple syrup and bake for an additional 2-3 minutes.
