Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Arrange the bacon strips in a single layer (not touching) on the parchment paper.
Using a pastry brush, brush each strip of bacon on both sides with the warmed maple syrup, then sprinkle brown sugar evenly on both sides.
*Alternatively, put the brown sugar in a bowl, add all the maple-coated slices of bacon, and toss gently to coat. Let any excess sugar fall back into the bowl.
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 300F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Arrange the baking sheet with the bacon on the grill grate.
Cook for 30 minutes, or until the bacon browns and appears to be crisping. Remember that bacon will crisp more as it cools.
Allow the bacon to cool slightly (the sugar will be hot!) before transferring to a platter.
Serve and enjoy!
