When I added the brown sugar I tasted and added more until it was sweet enough but not too sweet. After it came together in the small pot I hit it with the immersion blender.
I've had restaurant-made bacon jam on burgers before, too, and absolutely loved it. I'd be hesitant to order someone manufactured in a jar as I'd imagine it would be just like how OP described it.

I am personally not fond of the combination of meaty and sweet, seems fairly gross to me.

Pineapple on pizza, no.... meat slathered in sweet barbecue-sauce, ugh!

Yeah you could do that. We often have tomato jam on a savory bagel with bacon on the side.

Personally I prefer Carolina mustard based BBQ sauce. Big Daddy's recipe. Carolina Style Barbecue Sauce

Tangy and not overly sweet. My wife prefers a tomato based sauce though..

I can't stand it. The bacon jam I tasted was also sweet but also had habanero in it. It was not good at all.

I just took a smoked ham apart and chopped the fat under the hide plus some odds and ends up and have it cooking in a cast iron skillet. It actually tried to bite me. A piece of crackling hopped out of the pan. Not a lot of fat is rendering. I will add chopped onion, apple, a bit of heat and a spoon of brown sugar.

I'm generally not fond of the meat/sweet combo either, but I love a burger with bacon jam and a pungent blue cheese. The fatty/salty/sweet combo is excellent.

The thing with bacon jam is not to overdo it so it's not too sweet.

We like what we like and everyone has their opinion. But I think we can all agree that pineapple does not belong on pizza.

Use it as a glaze for grilled pork? Throw some bourbon or whiskey in it.
