Can you make these without a smoker?
No, you cannot make this food without a smoker.
A smoker is necessary to infuse the bacon with flavor and prevent it from drying out. Without a smoker, the bacon will not taste as good and will be more difficult to cook evenly. In addition, the bacon will not have that signature smoky flavor that makes it so special.
But you can also make these by air fried, and I think you’ll miss out on some smokey flavor, but since you are using barbecue sauce and rub, these will still have a lovely bbq taste.
Note tips for cooking
When it comes to making sure the noodles are fully cooked, the key is to keep an eye on the clock. The general rule of thumb is to cook them for about two minutes less than the package instructions indicate. This allows for the noodles to finish cooking while absorbing the flavors of the sauce. If you’re unsure if they’re done, err on the side of undercooking and then give them a quick taste test. You can always cook them a little longer if needed, but you can’t undo overcooked noodles.
