Creators of the Bacon Explosion, Aaron and Jason of BBQAddicts.com, went to the 2nd Annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival to cook up more than 30 Bacon Explosions for 300+ bacon fans in Des Moines, Iowa.
They have a great video of Aaron and Jason making the Explosions for the crowd, which includes the ceremonious Bacon Explosion Parade featuring the Dancing Bacon Girl.
While they were cooking the 30+ chubs of Bacon Explosions, the crowd dined on … yes, bacon! Bacon Cheeseburgers with Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos and Tater Tots, bacon breakfast sandwiches and bacon. Oh, and lots and lots of beer.
As someone who’s made a few Bacon Explosions, which are awesome and so easy, I’d like to point out that each one includes 3 – 4lbs of pork! One to 2 lbs bacon and about 2lbs of sausage! We’re talking about 128 pounds of pork goodness! Des Moines will never be the same.
