How to Make It
Stir together light brown sugar, black pepper, kosher salt, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl.
Place a lightly greased wire rack in each of 2 aluminum foil-lined 18- x 13-inch sheet pans, and arrange bacon in a single layer on each rack. Sprinkle bacon evenly on both sides with spice mixture (about 1 teaspoon per side), and rub gently to coat. Cover baking sheets loosely with foil, and refrigerate 8 to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Uncover bacon, and bake in preheated oven, rotating pans halfway through baking time, until deep golden brown and crisp around the edges, about 40 minutes. Let cool on racks in pans about 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter.
