Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Mix the brown sugar with cayenne and black pepper.

Dredge bacon slices in sugar and spice.

Cut bacon into thirds and wrap each strip around a piece of pineapple and water chestnut and secure with a toothpick. Arrange the pieces on a baking sheet. Bake until bacon is crisp and the brown sugar melted, about 25-20 minutes.
