Preheat your grill to medium heat- 400F
In a small bowl, whisk the brown sugar with the cayenne and chili powders.
Arrange the bacon strips on a sheet pan.
Sprinkle half the sugar/pepper mixture evenly over the bacon.
Carefully flip bacon pieces over and sprinkle with remaining sugar/pepper mixture.
Transfer bacon to preheated grill and allow to cook for 5-7 minutes.
With tongs, carefully flip the bacon over to it’s other side and allow to cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.
Depending on how crispy or chewy you like your bacon it may be finished earlier or later- you will just have to pay close attention towards the end of the cook.
