Recipe: Bacon Explosion

The buzz around the Bacon Explosion has died down a bit since it first became a thing a couple of years ago.  I haven’t done one of these in awhile, but with the Daytona 500 coming up I thought I’d dust off this recipe and put it on the menu.

Just as a refresher, here is the process for building your very own Bacon Explosion.

First, create a weave of bacon strips.  For this attempt, mine is 5×5.

I brushed lightly with sauce and rub before adding a layer of pork sausage.

In the middle, I snipped some pre-cooked bacon into pieces and added a little BBQ sauce.

Then roll the sausage into a log.

And, roll the weave around around sausage.


I cooked this one indirect at ~275* and hit with a little sauce to finish.  Sliced it up and served it hot of the smoker!

I’ve seen variations on this recipe.  Drop me a note and let me know how you’ve tweaked this to your liking.


Cheers,
Braddog
