Bacon Explosion – The BBQ Sausage Recipe of all Recipes

Jason and the guys over at have created a monster of a “chub” of bacon, sausage, and bbq. They are a  Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS) competition team, Burnt Finger BBQ.  This is their latest artery-clogging invention.

It’s bacon! It’s sausage! It’s MORE bacon! There’s BBQ sauce, BBQ rub. More BBQ sauce.

For anyone who’s ever smoked a “fatty” on their grill, this is the next level.

Here’s how it starts out. A bacon mat with rub sprinkled on:

Then there’s sausage & more bacon & rub & bbq sauce in the middle …

This is how it ends up:

Obviously pork is best served by itself, but if you feel the need to make this meat monster into a sandwich, try placing a couple Bacon Explosion slices on a warm Pillsbury’s Grands Biscuit. You’ll reach pork Nirvana is no time flat!

I’ve left out all the  steps and delicious photos, because, bacon lovers, you gotta see this recipe.

Personally, I can’t wait to try it!  Here’s the link:

Update 03/19/09: go to the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival in Des Moines, Iowa and cook over 30 Bacon Explosions!
