Using a food processor or blender, grind graham crackers into fine crumbs
Add in sugar & pulse a couple times to blend
Finally, add in melted butter, pulse until crumbs are moist
Press the mixture into the bottom of 10" springform pan and slightly up the sides.
Place in freezer to set until you are ready to add in your filling
Wrap 2 layers of foil around the outside of a 10" springform pan making sure to cover the bottom and sides.
If you aren't using a non-stick pan, spray pan liberally with cooking spray
Preheat oven to 300ยบ.
Use an electric mixer with paddle attachment, combine cream cheese & butter & beat until smooth.
Add eggs one at a time until blended.
Beat in sour cream
Add sugar, cornstarch, bourbon caramel syrup & lemon juice, beat until very smooth
Pour into prepared chilled pan
Place in a large roasting pan
Place pan in preheated oven & carefully pour boiling water into roasting pan to fill halfway up sides of cheesecake pan.
Bake 2 - 2.5 hours, or until cake is lightly browned on top. I baked 2 hours & then turned on my convection for another 30 minutes.
Remove from water bath & foil & cool at room temperature
Cover & refrigerate overnight
When ready to serve, top with bacon pieces & drizzle with chocolate caramel sauce
