Greetings, infidels. Today I undertook a sacred mission to make what has been termed a “bacon explosion” because, well, once I read about it, I had no choice. I had to try.
Observe the ingredients:
24 oz of thick cut bacon, 16 oz of mild italian sausage, all the cloves in one garlic bulb, a green pepper, extra sharp cheddar (4-6 oz), BBQ sauce, BBQ rub.
Make a bacon lattice square about 6-7 slices wide. Doesn’t have to be perfect, just sturdy. Cook the rest of the bacon in the usual fashion until crispy, set aside to cool.
Using a freezer bag, mush the sausage out to fill the same area as the weave. You can do this without the bag, but it sucks.
Cut away the bag, and add pork to pork.
Dice the garlic cloves and green pepper, crumble the cooked bacon into bits, and spread all evenly onto sausage. Add BBQ sauce like so.
Grate 4-6 oz of your cheddar, and spread that over top, pizza style. Sprinkle some BBQ rub over top.
Roll that thing up, then liberally apply rub to clean bacon surface. Place in foil lined pan on rack (it’s going to render like a fat man at Cedar Point in August, the foil helps cleanup).
Bake at 250F for 1.5 hours, 275F for 0.5 hours, then 300F for another 0.5 hours. Final pics to follow.
