In a large skillet, with a tight fitting lid, over medium high heat, add the oil and bacon and cook until rendered and the bacon begins to crisp up slightly, about 5 minutes. Add in the onion and continue cooking until the onions are translucent. Add the ground beef and continue to cook until no longer pink, about 7-8 minutes.
Stir in the rice and mix together. Pour in the water, barbecue sauce, and mustard and bring to a simmer. Season gently with salt and pepper. Cover and turn the heat to low. Allow to cook for 15 minutes and then turn off the heat. Allow to rest for 5-10 minutes more covered.
Meanwhile, preheat the broiler to high. When the rice is finished, sprinkle the cheese over the top and place under the broiler. Allow the cheese to bubble, melt, and color. Remove and garnish with sliced green onions. Serve hot.
