This morning we got Soccer out of the way early and I thought I would give the Bacon Explosion recipe a try. Below is the first step. Recipe called for 2lbs of bacon. I created a 7X7 bacon weave. It was not as difficult as I thought it would be. Then sprinkled some pork rub on the bacon.Posted ImageThe next step was creating the sausage patty. The recipe called for 2 lbs of sausage, I used Jimmy Dean Maple flavored. The recipe had you make the patty right on the bacon then peel it off I found that one of my other cutting board would create the proper size patty, so I used that as the surface to roll out the sausage into a patty on. Posted ImageThe next step was to fry up the remainder of the bacon. The recipe called for 2 lbs. of bacon total. The package I bought was three pounds so I fried up the remainder of the three lbs and then cut it up and sprinkled it over the sausage. Forgot to take a picture of it , but I sprinkled a little BBQ sauce over the cooked bacon. Sorry about not getting a picture. Posted ImageThis is the sausage and cooked bacon that I rolled into the log.Posted ImageThe next step called for rolling the bacon weave over the sausage roll.Posted ImageThe last step was completing the wrap and sprinkling with pork rub. Posted ImageGot the smoker going a little before three and put roll into the smoker at 220 DegreesPosted ImageCooked it for just under three hours at 220 degreesPosted ImageFired up the gas grill to see if I could get the exterior bacon a little more crisp. The gas grill did the job Posted ImageLook at t he nice pinwheel effect. Posted ImageServed up ready to eat. Oh yeah added some melon to he dinner. I think that will keep my arteries from clogging. Kids plate and adult plates Posted ImagePosted Image Already planning the next one. Going to use Italian Sausage next go around and my wife wants me to do one with a pork loin inside. Robert

Oh god...I can feel my heart slowing down just thinking about that. Does that come with a side of country gravy to put a little substance in it? Lol. Maybe a portable defibulator would be a better side dish... :fireworks3: I can't believe people would eat that...Just kidding, I think it looks delicous. I'll see about getting the bride to whip one up.Chorizo on one maybe?

That sounds fantastic!!! I've always wanted to make that and smoke it over hickory and mesquite. A little wine in the water pan on my wood smoker would just top it off. Good Stuff!!!
