    For the Dressing: Mix all ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and set aside.

    When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 400 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

    Lay bacon strips directly on the grill grate and cook for 10-15 minutes or until fat is rendered and bacon is crispy.
