The Epic Bacon Explosion

Don't worry, it's not as dangerous as it sounds!

A bacon explosion is a pork dish that consists of bacon wrapped around a filling of spice sausage and crumbled bacon that is smoked or baked. This American football sized dish became known after being posted on the BBQ addicts blog and spread across the internet. It is the BBQ sausage recipe of all recipes!

The Bacon Explosion is made of bacon, sausage, barbecue sauce, and barbecue seasoning or rub. The bacon is assembled in a weave to hold the sausage, sauce, and crumbled bacon. Once rolled, the Bacon Explosion is cooked (either smoked or baked), basted, cut, and served.

The Bacon Explosion's creators produced a cookbook featuring the best recipes that won the 2010 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards for "Best Barbecue Book in the World". This unique and savory dish also won first place in the 2013 Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival.
