1. Preheat broiler. Place 6 strips of bacon on a rack on top of a broiler pan.
2. In a small bowl mix the brown sugar, chili powder, and pepper. Lightly top each strip of bacon with about 1?2 to 1 tsp. of the seasoned sugar mixture, patting it down to make sure it adheres well.
3. Broil for 3 to 4 minutes, or until crisp and brown, but not burnt. Keep a close eye on the bacon, as it can go from undercooked to overcooked and burnt in seconds.
4. Gently turn the bacon and sprinkle each slice with another 1?2 to 1 tsp. of the sugar mixture, pressing down lightly to make sure it adheres to the meat. Broil for another 3 to 4 minutes, or until the bacon is cooked to your liking.
5. Remove from the broiler and repeat with the remaining bacon and sugar mixture. Serve warm or at room temperature.
