Bacon Explosion

• 1 1/2 Lbs of THICK-cut bacon (I just get 2 pounds, and go from there)
• Dry-spice package (McCormick's Pork Rub works well)
• 1 1/2 Lbs of uncased sausage meat (I use spicy-HOT- but you can use any italian style)
• Barbecue Sauce, of your choosing
• Liquid Smoke, 1 small bottle -- if you're cheating, and making it indoors.


Take 10 slices of bacon, and lay out a latticework. Keep it tight---you wanna have it hold together! Fry remaining bacon, crumble, set aside. Sprinkle lattice with spice, and spread the sausage out on top of it, leaving a 1-inch border all the way around. Then, sprinkle with cooked bacon. Wipe drool, and continue.

At this stage, I like to spread more dry spice on---AND, in a fit of experimentation that chefs like myself tend to do, I spread shredded CHEESE on top here.

Now, it gets to the point, where you need dexterity... Carefully roll up the sausage base (but NOT the lattice--get it?), into a roll, finishing with the roll at one end of the latticework. Now, roll up the lattice, over the sausage innards roll. You should finish with a roll that's , say, 2 1/2- to- 3" thick.

If you're doing this in an oven (purists howl, if you don't use a smoker), use a 275 degree oven. Now,...use a pan, deep enough to hold some liquid a rack, and the explosion. Pour the Liquid Smoke into the bottom of the pan (if it doesn't cover the bottom completely, add a touch of water.) Place the explosion on the rack, so it doesn't touch the liquid.

Cover the whole shebang in foil, and slide her into the oven. Let it sit for about 2 1/2 hours...then, pull it out, take the foil off, and begin its bath, BBQ sauce.

Brush her up good, and put it back in the oven for another hour, basting gently as you go.

Now, comes the GOOD part. Pull it out, and let her rest for about 10 minutes. Slice it gently, as thinly as you feel is right, and drop that slice on a slider bun.

Mmmmm.... Bacon!

Sounds like a lot of work but let me know if you decide to try it. :-)

I've actually TRIED it! A friend of ours ([ profile] nottygypsy's former roommate/landlord) bought one of these and cooked it on the grill! It's awesome in all it's bacon-meaty goodness... There is apparently a local bbq place or a butcher that has them already made, you just have to cook it...
