Bacon Explosion: The BBQ Sausage Recipe of all Recipes

Posted by Jason on December 23, 2008

The Original Bacon Explosion

The other day the guys from contacted me in search for some barbecue bacon recipes.  Of course I have plenty of great uses for bacon in a barbecue pit, but the longer I thought about it, the more I wanted to step it up a notch and clog a few arteries for those guys.  Behold, BACON EXPLOSION!!!  Here’s what you’ll need…

2 pounds thick cut bacon
2 pounds Italian sausage
1 jar of your favorite barbeque sauce
1 jar of your favorite barbeque rub

To kick off the construction of this pork medley you’ll need to create a 5×5 bacon weave.  If the strips you’re using aren’t as wide as the ones pictured, then you may need to use a few extra slices to fill out the pattern.  Just make sure your bacon weave is tight and that you end up with a nice square shape to work with.

Bacon Weave

The next step is to add some barbecue seasoning on top of your bacon weave.  Being the barbeque addict that I am, I whipped up a batch of Burnt Finger BBQ’s competition pork rub for this special occasion.  Seeing as not everyone has the time, or the expertise, to create a tasty rub of their own, I would recommend trying Cowtown Sweet Spot for the best combination. Plowboys Yardbird, Bad Byron’s Butt Rub, and Rendezvous Famous Seasoning are also excellent choices.

Seasoned Bacon Weave

Now that you’re pork is well seasoned, it’s time to add more pork.  Take two pounds of Italian sausage and layer it directly on top of your bacon weave.  Be sure to press the sausage to the outer edges of the bacon creating a patty that is the same thickness all the way across.  Most grocery stores carry loose sausage, so just pick out one you like.  I chose to go with a mild sausage, but spicy would work just the same.  If you really want to get crazy, take a stab at making your own homemade sausage.

Next up is bacon layer number two.  Take the remaining bacon slices and fry them up the same way you would for breakfast (or lunch, or dinner, or a midnight snack).  If you like soft bacon, make it soft.  If you like crunchy bacon, make it crunchy.  If you like your bacon burnt to hell so the smoke detectors go off, then burn it to hell so the smoke detectors go off.  These pieces are going to be a major part of the inner flavor of our sausage fatty, so cook them your favorite way.  Personally, I like my bacon right at the point when it starts to get crispy, but hasn’t quite lost all of the softness yet.  Regardless of how well done you like yours, you’ll need to crumble or chop the cooked strips into bite size pieces and place on top of the sausage layer.  (Note-It’s okay, and encouraged, to snack on these pieces while your chopping/crumbling.  But keep in mind that once those bacon morsels touch the raw sausage, you’ll need to resist all temptations to nibble.  This can and will be difficult, but hospital trips are no fun, so stay strong.)

Since this is a barbeque recipe, we need to add another layer of barbeque flavor.  Take your favorite sauce and drizzle it all over the top of the bacon pieces.  Personally, I prefer to use Burnt Finger BBQ’s homemade competition sauce, but if you’re torn on what brand to use I recommend Cowtown, Blues Hog, and Fiorella’s Jack StackOnce you’ve sauced the bacon, sprinkle on some more of the barbeque seasoning you used on the bacon weave.

Now comes the fun part.  Very carefully separate the front edge of the sausage layer from the bacon weave and begin rolling backwards.  You want to include all layers EXCEPT the bacon weave in your roll.  Try and keep the sausage as tight as possible and be sure to release any air pockets that may have formed.  Once the sausage is fully rolled up, pinch together the seams and ends to seal all of the bacon goodness inside.

At this point we can start to see the final shape of our Bacon Explosion, but we’re missing one key item.  To complte the constuction process, roll the sausage forward completely wrapping it in the bacon weave.  Make sure it sits with the seam facing downward to help keep it all sealed up.

Rolled Bacon Weave

Sprinkle some barbeque seasoning on the outside of the bacon weave, and now this bad boy is ready for the smoker.  Cook your Bacon Explosion at 225 degrees in a constant cloud of hickory smoke until your Thermapen gives an internal temperature reading of 165 degrees.  Normally this will take about 1 hour for each inch of thickness, but that could vary depending on how well you maintain your fire and also how many times you open the smoker to take a peek.  Mine took about 2.5 hours, which was right on target with its 2.5 inch diameter.

Now that our Bacon Explosion is fully cooked, we need to add some finishing flavors.  Remember that barbecue sauce we used for inner flavor?  We’ll be using that same sauce to glaze the cooked bacon weave.  Using a basting brush, coat the entire surface with a thin layer of sauce.  Sweet sauces are loaded with sugars, so they’ll give your fatty a nice glossy finish.  Spicy and vinegar based sauces don’t contain as much, so they won’t set up as well.  If you’re dead set on using those sauces, just cut them with a bit of honey and you’ll get the same effect.

Slice the Bacon Explosion into quarter to half inch rounds to serve.  If your roll was good and tight, you should now see a nice bacon pinwheel pattern throughout the sausage.  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 in no time flat!

Be sure to send us stories and photos of your Bacon Explosion experience.  Who knows, you may see your ugly mug on BBQ Addicts!!!

I had some trouble with the 2lbs of sausage on a 5×5 square. Seems to be too much on a small space and I couldn’t get it rolled up. I made 2 versions that works equally well. First was the 5×5 but I only used .5lbs of sausage. Worked great. Second version was 2lbs bacon, 2 lbs sausage on a 10×10 square. Worked good too. Not quite as bacon-y as the smaller version, but still good. Also, on the second version I added 1lb of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Excellent improvement!

Great recipe!!!!!

Obbop December 24, 2008

I am so gonna’ cook up a few dozen of those things and take to the box-social at the mosque this coming Saturday afternoon.

I’m courtin’ Betty-Lou and I just know I’ll earn big-time points with her and the congregation.

Jason December 24, 2008

@armorer243 The size of the square depends on the width of your bacon. I was using some pretty hefty slices, so they may have covered more surface area than yours. Glad to hear the recipe treated you well!

PS. Cheese makes anything better!!!

it’s kind of like having a plate full of frosting and no cake. the frosting is the best part, who needs cake? or how about a bowl full of melted cheese? a warm glass of hollandaise sauce? or why don’t you just gnaw on a stick of butter? that’s rich too. yummy!
obviously butter is best served by itself. but I guess if you have to you could put it on a biscuit or something.

can this be baked at 225 (250?) degrees instead of barbecued? (my grilling skills aren’t accurate enough to measure fire at 225)

Jason December 25, 2008

@han Yes, this can be cooked in an oven. Just make sure it cooks to an internal temp of 165. You will loose all of the delicious smokey flavor that truely makes this dish complete, but then again…it’s still bacon and sausage, so you can’t go wrong!!!

Jeff December 25, 2008

You could then slice it into patties and place it between two grilled cheese sandwiches, each having yet another layer of bacon within the cheese – sort of like a fatty melt.

Uncle B December 25, 2008

This much meat can supply flavor to a lot of rice, corn, oatmeal, or potatoes.You are not even saving the drippings for cookies! In the post – (GRD) great republican depression times, when all foods are scarce, and gall bladder operations are priced out of reach by the Uber-Class, Ultra rich, who, by the way, don’t eat cheap greasy foods, we will look back on recipes like these and see the wrongness of our ways! we will be as thin as the Asian hoards of workers who drove us to this poverty, but we will be thin and healthy!

the addition of sausage sounds awesome, it takes manhood to a whole new level.

Jason A. December 26, 2008

if its served in a reasonable portion, 2 x 2-4 mm slices, i assume that it would not be much worse than a side of sausage alone…if you make a burger out of it you’ll be in trouble soon enough!

That is some great technique there. How does the bacon take to the second smoking? Looks really crunchy on the outside. Impressive.

This was an homage to pork, so cheese was left out of the equation. The second smoke on the bacon worked out great. It yields a stronger flavor than standard bacon, but that’s what us BBQ Addicts love!!!

RaiderFrank December 29, 2008

For decades my favorite meal has required waking up drunk at a Marriott property and stumbling down stairs for their all you can eat breakfast. I routinely eat 3 to 5 pounds of bacon and spend the next 40 minutes reading USA Today back on my toilet (its how I roll). My friends marvel at the fact I’m not dead and still under 250 pounds. Not much under but I’m in the clubhouse at about half a stone under par (the British system tends to not make you sound so much like a/o – beast). I obviously appreciate (heavy stress on “ATE” part of that last word) any recipe that involves 2 pounds of bacon but I would like to add that in many butcher shops the thick bacon actually comes from Hog Jowls. I would invite the true bacon lovers to not overlook the possibility of buying hog Jowls (available at many grocery stores in the smoked meat area) and slicing it very thick. Let’s say 3/4 of an inch to make the wrapping of this feast much easier and the package much more sturdy. Using 3/4 inch cut hog jowls strips you could also turn this into an indoor oven backed feast. Not everyone can BBQ in the winter or at work in the breakroom for lunch. The only drawback to using bacon this thick is our public health requirement to avoid a neighborhood wide outbreak of Tricanosis. Because after all we all want live to eat more pork. I make a mean Hog Jowl casserole. It’s nothing more than hog jowls sliced and rolled up with 2 pounds of shredded cheese and sliced pepperoni inside. It great its like Pizza without all that pastry crap in the way. And baking lets a lot of the grease flow out not that its a health consideration but it does saves you from having to change your shirt after a good meal.

I don’t see why you need to cook it to 165 internally, that’s just ultra-well done and unnecessary. An internal temperature of 145-155 is perfectly safe! I mean I personally enjoy it a little pink especially if your using super fresh pork.

Jason December 30, 2008


Feel free to cook your pork to whatever temp you prefer. 165 might be a bit high for chops or loin, but it’s plenty good for sausage. There’s more than enough fat to keep the pork moist and delicious. In fact, I’ve taken fatties much high without any problems.

@UncleNate December 30, 2008

In case you’re interested, here’s a publication put out by the National Pork Board, a pork producers organization, that has some of the facts about cooking temperatures for pork. They advocate 155 F but their basic message is “140 F is safe”.

The U.S. Code of Federal Regulations for processed pork products reflects experimental data,and requires pork to be cooked for 2 hours at 52.2 C (126 F), for 15 minutes at 55.6 C (132 F), and for 1 minute at 60 C (140 F).

Either way, I’m sure the Bacon Explosion is delicious at whatever temperature you choose so cook it!


Jason December 30, 2008


Thanks for the great info!!! But I would like to point out that there is a difference between “safe” pork and properly cooked pork. Many BBQ meats (especially pork) are cooked well beyond the “safe” zone. Pork butt can be taken as high as 210 degrees and will still be quite moist. It’s just a matter of how much fat you choose to render out of the meat. The low and slow cooking process is very conducive to retaining moisture while breaking down the tough connective tissue. This is the whole reason that BBQ is so tender and delicious. Ultimately though, it all boils down a matter of personal opinion. There is no right or wrong when it comes to BBQ, and as you said before, the Bacon Explosion is delicious no matter temperature you choose. So do what best suits your taste while staying safe.

It made my fat meter go BONG! But I can not look at a thing like this without thinking of what to add to make it just a little better. Grilled chopped onion & jalapeños; Diced leftover baked potatoes & shredded cheddar cheese as a last layer inside. That should make a complete clog.

Speaking of additions, what about a whole pork tenderloin in the middle?

Alex December 31, 2008

Wouldn’t it change the cooking time too much unless you did the loin first?

Michael Hoffman December 31, 2008

Perhaps it would, slightly, but I don’t see that as an impediment, especially because you’d probably want to sear the tenderloin first. Plus, the tenderloin can stand to be cooked to a lower temp than the sausage.

Aaron January 1, 2009


Yea, sorry I forgot you invented sausage and bacon. And fatties.

Frankly we’ve been accused of “stealing” this recipe several times and I don’t get it. It’s just sausage wrapped in bacon, and we did it well. You and the other fourteen people that have claimed to invented it can take credit, we just take credit for making this one :)

Dan January 1, 2009

“but the longer I thought about it, the more I wanted to step it up a notch”

Nothing new here. Just looks like a regualar ole bacon fatty. Somewhat like re-inventing the wheel.
The folks here seem to enjoy the pics though.

ethical January 1, 2009

by eating these horrifically raised factory farmed pigs you’re filling your bodies up with cancer causing heavy metals, hormones and antibiotics and destroying the efficacy of the antibiotics your children will need to survive by creating super bugs and ruining the planet they need to survive.. have you read about the waste that a pig CAFO creates? .. You’re all disgusting and karma will get you in the end for having such a lack of ethics.

Aaron January 1, 2009


Sorry for ending the world. I’d rather eat some tasty food before Armageddon :)

Michael Hoffman January 1, 2009


I generally agree with your point of view—that’s why I almost never eat factory-farmed animals—but what I don’t agree with is your preachy fun-killing rudeness. You must know from experience that no one will listen to you when you take that tone. How about you go eat some organically raised soy products and leave the rest of us to our good time?

Chris January 2, 2009

Wow! Fucking Wow! I wanna sink my teeth into that fucking juicy roll of a whatyoumaycallit.

Cavan January 2, 2009

The most difficult part seems to be the sausage roll. My suggestion is take a tip from sushi makers and create a rolling sheet from wax paper, butcher paper or plastic wrap. Cut a sheet that is the same size as the bacon layer. Do not cover the entire bacon layer offset the wrapping material an inch or two and then layer the sausage on top. Now you can easily pull the entire sausage layer at once and wrap it (obviously leaving the wrapping material out of the rolled sausage).

@Kurt @Dan

We don’t claim to be the inventor of the fatty in any way. If you can provide me with the location of where we made this statement, then we’ll gladly remove it. We too have been making fatties for years and definitely acknowledge that they are commonplace within the BBQ community. In fact, I even called the Bacon Explosion a fatty a few times during the write up. I personally have never seen a bacon stuffed, bacon wrapped fatty though, so I thought it would be a fun way to pay homage to pork. I had a blast making it, documenting the process, and serving it to my family and friends. Isn’t that what BBQ is all about?

Jason January 2, 2009

@Sid – I accept your bacon wrapped ring and tip a glass of 18 year single malt in your honor!!!

@Janice – If you’re a fan of sweets, which it sounds like you might be, you should try using brown sugar and cayenne pepper (or red pepper flake) on the outside. It will melt down and form a nice crust around the Bacon Explosion. You can adjust the heat levels by the amount of pepper you add. Also, I have an uncle who is allergic to black pepper, but is able to eat white pepper without any problems. If that is the case with you, then you can make this simple substitution in just about any rub recipe.

@ Misty

Try using the Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage that comes in the “tube”. It is not as intense as Italian sausage but it will roll just as well (who doen’t like breakfast sausage?). I usually spread a nice layer of the stuff over a personal size frozen cheese pizza and bake it. The sausage paste spreads on nice & even and browns up beautifully.

Ground beef would work great! In fact, with the added cheese it’s a bacon cheeseburger fatty. My only advisory is that beef dries out easier than pork. Just keep a close eye on your internal temp and you’ll be just fine.

Perhaps this is what was meant by heaven on Earth?”
Some people, believe it or not, don’t like bacon at all.

I’m a vegetarian, who was sent the link to this recipe by a non-vegetarian friend for discussion purposes.
I was raised in a poor southern family who cooked all the normal things, including lots of fried meats. I never liked them. The smell makes me sick.

I am not a vegetarian for health reasons and almost never eat any soy product or tofu. I think my food tastes great as I generally make my own food at home from scratch.

Why are you the slightest bit concerned with whether anyone else does or does not like bacon? If you like it, then eat it…but not everyone else is going to think it’s all that great.

My comments were not a Nazi inspired ploy to force someone to eat food they don’t want is directed to those that come to a site called bbqaddicts and read about a bacon masterpiece..and begin to preach and bitch. Eat whatever you like, just save the preaching for someone interested in your same tastes.
It makes no sense to go to a “fan” site of anything…to talk about how stupid or wrong it is for them to be fans.
I am so sick of people who find it necessary to direct others on diet and morality..or a combination of both.
I happen to like Bacon, meat in general, my very hot young wife, boating, and football..I have now added this fine meal right between meat in general and my hot young wife…that being said…if you don’t like the idea, don’t eat it, and preach to someone that agrees with you. The bitching I have seen here has inspired me to make sure that all my carnivorous friends will not only see this recipe, but taste it frequently, and I am quite certain you won’t be joining us.
Perhaps the whole baby thing excited you?

I read this while drinking a V8 as I’m on day 7 of my ‘Eat Better, Stupid!’(tm) diet. Honestly, you made my teeth hurt with hunger. This looks incredible. It does scream for jalapenos and onions, tho. And beer. Lots, and lots of beer. When I get down under 200lbs, I’m going to celebrate with one of these. And then, I’m going to have to get under 200lbs again.

Angioplasty waiting to happen!! OK so I made it this weekend and I tried to be somewhat careful of the fat content so I used Jimmy Dean lo-fat pork sausage. It turned out to be slightly dry! Long live PORK FAT!!!

Jason January 12, 2009

@Dirkasaurus – Bacon Explosion can now be eaten for every meal of the day!!!

@MD – Jalapenos and cheese go great in a fatty! If you want to kick the heat up even more, try using spicy Italian sausage. Are you planning on beer battering it before frying?

@Michael J – The fat is what keeps Bacon Explosion moist. Next time try cooking to a lower internal temp. That should keep the fat from rendering out of the meat (unless that’s what you want).

Aaron January 12, 2009

I’m liking all the variations people are coming up with here, especially some of the breakfast things. I’d like to try out some bacon explosion fried egg casserole!

This was the main dish for our tailgate party in Pittsburgh for the Divisional Playoff game yesterday. BTW – the Steelers were triumphant and my wager was paid off with a bottle of Johnny Walker Green label – but I degress…)
I loved this recipe but I opted for bit of a twist – 4 lbs. of bacon and 4lbs. of pork/venison sausage.
In case you are concerned that my arteries were deprived – I decided to smoke Camel non-filters for the 3.5 hours while this heavenly beast was smoldering in the smoker.
I must say, the Burnt Finger BBQ sauce was one of the best sauces that I had ever tasted – the rub I used was my own – and included a combination of homegrown scotch bonnet peppers and crushed red pepper. The sweet smoky flavor of the sauce and honey really complimented this arterial cork and with nearly 2 lbs. of leftovers, I plan on trying the deep-fried suggestion described earlier and perhaps I will use a hush puppy/beer batter… Kudos to the visionary who, like myself, obviously looks forward to our next coronary.

DumbBastid January 12, 2009

Forgot to add – I had a bit of trouble rolling this 4 pound monster so for an extra tight roll, I used a commercial sushi roll mat (bamboo weaved with string) lined with a couple of layers of plastic wrap to avoid cross contamination…

Fexie January 12, 2009

So… what was that about an obesity epidemic?

Jason January 12, 2009

@DumbBastid – I hold Bacon Explosion soley responsible for the Steeler victory. I also expect you to be at Arrowhead Stadium next year if your team comes to town. The game might not be good, but the tailgate will be LEGENDARY!!!!

Michael J January 13, 2009

Jason – Thanks for the tip on the use of sausage with the pork fat. I used the ” Big Green Egg ” BBQ/smoker. It does have a tendency to cook slightly hot. I cried when my Chargers lost to the Steelers and maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention to this creation. I think I will make this next time Southern California style and roll the center with a prosciutto/asparagus/jalepeno combo. Lots of good ideas from the people on this site.

Jason January 13, 2009

@Michael J – Big Green Eggs are very versatile cookers. You get a smoker, grill, and outdoor oven all in one package. But in order to use it to it’s full potential, you’ll want to have good control of your fire. In my experience, even a millimeters difference in the vent openings can make a big difference with the Egg. Next time you fire that bad boy up, pay close attention to your settings and how it effects your temp. You may even try measuring the openings and keeping a log of your results for future reference. Once you get your temps under control, you’ll notice a sizable difference in the quality of meat you produce.

Donovan January 14, 2009

Great recipe but what a waste of time and smoke. to make the recipe simpler and better, make the sausage roll separatly on a sheet of plastic wrap and roll very tight (like a sushi roll) and then wrap in the bacon weave. Microwave for about 3 minutes per pound to an internal temp of 140F before smoking. finish as directed but only smoke for about 30 minutes or until browned.

Aaron January 14, 2009

Microwave??? Seriously? First, the proteins in the meats will bind around 140 degrees, so putting it on the smoker after that is pointless as it won’t absorb any smoke flavor. That generally defeats the purpose.

This requires patience and some attention. It’s not McDonald’s.

After reading all these statements and testimonials I am truly in awe! I believe god made bacon as a sign that he loves us and that it should be wrapped around everything that is edible. I am a member of a motley crew known of as “camp Sausage” We go to bluegrass festivals and eat sausage with every meal (along with most other pork products) I’ve gotten the technique for wrapping bacon around marshmallows down tight… I cannot wait to throw a few of these slabs into the smoke chamber, burn a few fatties, and pass the whiskey ’round!!! The Amish make some wicked bacon and sausage down here in south eastern Pa. I hope they will profit greatly from my efforts to spread the gospel!!!

I’m seriously wondering about 101 variants on this. Like small-cubed pork with chili verde sauce in the middle. Or shredded bbq pork in the middle (both could be partly-cooked first). Or actually, three thin layers: bacon, canadian bacon, and pepperoni, maybe partly-cooked first so they were each more crispy, THEN something in the middle. Or, if you gotta make a meatloaf, why not make it like this? Or . . . my god. My house is going to smell like bacon for weeks but I’ve gotta try it!

Maple Bourbon Glaze

1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup bourbon or sour mash whiskey
1/2 cup cider vinegar
Grated peel and juice of 2 juice oranges (about 1/2 cup)
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1/4 cup brown or Creole mustard
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon coarse grain or sea salt

In a heavy nonreactive pot, add the maple syrup, whiskey, vinegar, orange juice and peel, brown sugar, mustard, and soy. Bring to a simmer and reduce the mixture to 1 cup. If grilling or roasting meat or poultry turn and baste with the glaze during the last 10 minutes of cooking. If grilling or roasting seafood, turn and baste with the glaze during the last 5 minutes of cooking.

Yield: 1 cup

@Ray – Although we recommend the smoker, you can cook it in the oven at 250 for around 2 1/2 hours (just make sure the internal temp reaches 165). After baking, you’ll need to crisp up the bacon either in a fry pan or in the broiler.

Kerry January 28, 2009

I DO want to make this in my FE100, but wonder if laying the sausage and other layers down on top of the bacon and then trying to separate the two isn’t overcomplicating things. Why not make the roll separately, seal it and lay it onto the weave for the first time as a log? Or why not just mix all ingredients, make a log and wrap it in the weave? I know the ‘pinwheel’ effect will be lost but how important is that? Won’t change the taste, as I see it. What do you think?

@Eric – Cooking in the oven is not a recommend method. I would suggest using a stovetop smoker if you don’t have access to a patio style smoker. You’ll be missing out on so much flavor if you cook it in the oven.

Jason January 28, 2009

@Kerry – I like to lay the sausage over the bacon because it helps with the sizing. I suggest doing whatever works best for you. While the pinwheel look good, is also creates little cavities that hold the sauce you drizzle over the top of the chopped bacon. If you mash all the ingredients together, then you’ll be missing out on that portion.

@Hackett – There’s no reason you can’t smoke this in a Weber Kettle charcoal grill.
Simply build the fire (low-med) off to one side of the kettle. Shoot for 225 degrees or so.
Don’t forget some hickory wood on the fire.
Place a drip pan on the other side, and place the bacon monster over that pan. Get the internal temp to 165 after a few hours and you’re good. Jason’s took 2.5 hours.

Good luck!

It’s just too bad that I had already planned my Super Bowl munchies (ribs, potato skins, stuffed jalapenos and nachos) before I read about this. I’ll definitely give it a try, probably with a pepper jack and grilled onion filling.

I have trouble keeping my smoker (a big ol’ boxy Brinkman) at a steady temperature. It tend to cool off to 180 degrees or so after an hour. Finishing it in the oven might be necesary.

I made the yummy yummy porky one for the rest of the family, but for them I exchanged the reg. italian sausage with italian TURKEY sausage, and the bacon for TURKEY bacon.

This was a great reason to buy a smoker. We had to get an indoor smoker to and the recipe works great but did not take 2.5 hours. Is that a typo? Seems like a long time unless indoor smokers do it quicker at the same temps…

But had to test it out on some chicken and veggies and found a new love: the indoor smoker. Only 28 minutes for three huge marinated chicken breasts. I know it may be sacrilege for hardcore BBQ’ers but it’s winter, we have no backyard, and for $40 it replaced the George Foreman. Buh-bye.

Alrighty, so, I made it, and videographized the result. You can see that here:

YUM! It was delicious. I did do a few things wrong, but that just leaves room for me to make it again:

* Bacon I bought was delicious but VERY salty. I needed to either omit all salt from all other portions of this recipe or find a less salty bacon
* Sausage I bought was more “country breakfast” than “zesty italian” (which I would have preferred) but it was still good.
* I really shouldda used a sweeter BBQ sauce or cut the one I used with honey or similar.

Minor things. Seeyalls!

The Good Wifey February 11, 2009

I made two of these beautiful beauties for my hubby to take to work on a Friday, it was a smash hit with everybody on his team save the vegan, who was disgusted. Anywhoooo, this comment goes out to all the people that needed an oven recipe…DUH! Use your heads people! Just put it in the oven at the temp stated for the smoker and cook it until the internal temp read 165 or so….then slather it with the rest of the sauce and stick it back in the oven until it’s all burned and yummy lookin….I followed the destructions as stated in the recipe and used the oven in the above mentioned fashion, and it turned out perfect!!! The bacon was wonderfully crispy crunchy and oh my yes, it was a little slice of heaven, right here in my dinky little apartment kitchen (hence I have no smoker, cuz I’m not allowed to have one on the deck, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to leave a good, nice smoker just sitting around down on the ground below my deck, so that one of my dipshit neighbors can steal it!) Thanks for the great recipe!

jesse February 11, 2009

just for fun, i calculated the nutritional information base upon the labels of the ingredients i used.

made with 2 pounds of thick sliced bacon, 2 lbs of spicy iltalian sausage, and grands butter milk biscuits. the final log was massive and cut into 1/16 thick slices for a burger patty. roughly a 1/4 lbs precooked patty. then placed on a buttermilk flakey biscuit.

calories 477.5
fat 30.75 (keep in mind 190 cal and 9 fat are from the biscuit)

not as bad as you’d think. so just get 16 people together, because if you don’t, you’ll have seconds, and it gets worse from there.

Aaron February 11, 2009

@Jesse – Yea, we weren’t quite sure where the NY Times came up with the calorie count, but once they printed it that’s what everyone picked up.

Another website did an official count of some sort and came to around the same count. Besides, if you eat a whole one anyway you’ve got a lot more things to worry about!

Hey all. My crazy friend Billy Bob sent us a photo of his “Love Log” (ooh, that doesn’t sound good – that’s his term for the Bacon Explosion). It inspired me to create a VERY short tribute to the B.Ex. You can check it out at my Vimeo webpage:

Hope you enjoy it!

I need to get myself a decent BBQ so I can make one of these dam things.

You have to be a genius to figure out how to wrap meat around meat around meat. #TWSS

I am so thrilled that everyone is talking about this, and honestly I heard about it before I knew who made it and ever since then I have wanted one.

Maybe you guys can ship these at Christmas instead of fruit cake? I’d buy one!

Keep smokin!

But I will most certainly try this recipe one day. Preferably in summer when the snow is gone. Looking forward to it!

Candace February 13, 2009

I just made this for my husband for his valentines day dinner. Yes you heard me. I am a pretty good cook so when my husband asked me to make this bacon explosion thing I was floored. However, I did what he asked and prepared it. Its a very simple recipe and I was afraid it would fall apart but it didn’t the weave kept the roll and all of its greasy goodness inside. We took pictures to of the event (for some reason he became obsessed with the bacon explosion after hearing about its popularity) and after his first bite he was in love. Not exactly the most healthy recipe i’ve tried but it did make him happy. Happy valentines day all and thanks for the great recipe.

First of all – Thank you for creating something fun and exciting.

I’ve made 4 of these now (and shared with many, many people) and so far the favorite has been a breakfasty version:

-Peppered Bacon
-Jimmy Dean sausage (accept NO substitutes)
-the addition of 1/2 pound of Velveeta Mexican Mild cheese in the middle (be sure to close up the end of the roll as much as possible to prevent the cheese from running out due the tightening of the roll). I just cut slices and layed them out along with the cooked bacon in the middle. Along with some Mary B’s Butter Flavor frozen biscuits this is pretty simple and a bit of heaven.

We were quite pleased with our Bacon Explosion! In order to lower the fat content, we combined half regular sausage and half turkey sausage. It has been our experience with turkey sausage that it’s all in the seasonings and with the Bacon Explosion our experience proved true. It was outstanding! My fiance is a master weaver and when he was finished the weave looked incredible. We can’t wait to try some of the other BBQ recipes.

Gregg Schaeffer February 24, 2009

Great success with the Bacon Explosion on my very first try! I used Famous Dave’s Rib Rub, which seemed a little bland. Next time, I’ll try something spicier. I also think I used too much sausage, I wasn’t able to get the “pinwheel” effect. Not having a smoker. I put the Explosion on the gas grill, on the upper rack, at the lowest heat. After an hour, the meat thermometer read 170 degrees. Check out my pics at;l=c15a8

I’m going to slice and vacuum seal my leftovers to use as an ingredient. The possibilities are endless– on salads, baked potatoes, pizza etc.! Today, I’m using a slice of my bacon explosion in some homemade colby-jack mac and cheese. What a nice porky-carbohydrate bomb.

Ryan March 16, 2009

My friend and I made 2 attempts at this. The first time, we used italian sausage and doubled the recipe just to see how far we could go. It was huge and good, but the sausage was a bit overpowering.

Last weekend, we substituted the sausage for hamburger and added sharp cheddar and american cheese inside along with the crumbled bacon. It turned out great! Each bite was like the best part of a double bacon cheeseburger.

OakHillSmoke March 17, 2009

Finally took the plunge and made the Bacon Bomb this past weekend. Everything went according to the directions. I did use a bit less sausage, 1 1/2 lbs., which was plenty. I am a fan of Bryons Butt Rub so I used that. I did add a thin layer of shredded cheese. I did not have any problem seperating the sausage to make the roll. I do think if you can get the size right, you don’t need to spread the sausage on the bacon and it might roll a bit easier. Other than that, the bomb went in my CookShack Smoker along with a meatloaf. Smoked for just under 3hrs to get to 165 degrees. Everyone loved it so it’s a keeper. The next morning I used a slice of it on an english muffin with a fried egg. My new version of the Egg McMuffin. Delicious.

mr_melvis March 17, 2009

By the way – you can comfort your friends who need some kind of material other than meat/protein in this creation, by adding roasted Portabello mushrooms to the dish, in place of the crumbled bacon in step #4. Cut portabellos into slices, then toss lightly with olive oil, while lightly sprinkling sea salt over them. Roast the slices on a cookie sheet for 1 hour in a 350F degree oven, occasionally moving them around on the cookie sheet during the roasting. At the end of an hour (approx – based on your oven), they will look like cooked bacon pieces, and surprisingly enough – they taste almost EXACTLY like bacon…

Josh March 17, 2009

Could you just cook this inside a grill?? Or do you need a smoker?

Aaron March 17, 2009

@Josh – if you use a grill, turn off half the burners and keep the grease drippings away from the open flame, otherwise it will catch on fire.

@mr_melvis – cool idea on the portabellos, hadn’t thought of that. Adding salt might give it a little too much though, depending on what rub you’re using.

@jbt – man, that thing lasts forever…but cool

Glad everyone likes it! Stay tuned for more bacon explosion news soon!

@Mike: you don’t need a smoker.
Just fire up a grill, and slow cook the chub on indirect heat. Throw on some chips, and wait for the magic! Keep the kettle or lid closed for about 1 1/2 – 2 hours and you’ll be amazed at the results. Make sure you get the internal temp right.

Andrew K March 24, 2009

Just finished making it around 2:00AM last night. Took exactly 3 hours to cook after I put it in the oven at 225 degrees near the top rack.

When I rolled it, I don’t think I used enough bacon bits in the middle because it wound up being mostly sausage, and the bottom was flat instead of completely round all the way.

But hey, I can’t complain, $16 for sausage and bacon, $4 BBQ sauce/rub, and a couple bucks for the oven bill led to a dish that I sure couldn’t get in any restaurant that I know of! If you’ll excuse me, I’ve some snacking to do

mr_melvis March 30, 2009

Finally made my 1st one this weekend – as good as everyone says it is (great on the GRAND biscuits!). We are going to try several variations for the inside now (still with outside bacon weave wrap):

1. Hamburger, sharp cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon
2. Ground Turkey, sage stuffing, cranberries
3. Hamburger, roasted garlic mashed potato layer, corn
4. Hamburger mixed with taco seasoning, black refried beans, chopped tomatoes/onions
5. Ground pork, prosciutto, pine nuts, Boursin herb cheese

etc. etc. etc….


Quani Morelock March 31, 2009

We have been making these on a smaller scale for a few years now. I will definitely try your version if you’d like to try mine. Fill a clean poblano pepper with cream cheese, wrap it tightly with the sausage and then the bacon weave. It adds an incredible extra layer of flavor that you won’t regret trying. For individual size “armadillo eggs” fill a pickled jalapeno with cream cheese, wrap in sausage and then the bacon. Its usually the first thing to run out at my barbeques!

Jason March 31, 2009

@Quani – Sounds like a cross between buffalo turds and scotch eggs. We’ll be giving that one a try!

HotSauceDaily March 31, 2009

@Quani Morelock – That variation sounds awesome! I’ve made 6 or 7 of these suckers now. My last version was with breakfast sausage. Yawn. Don’t bother. Stick with the Italian.
Can’t wait to try the poblanos and the smaller jalapeno versions!

Quani, do you have a website for your recipes and bbq stuff? We’d love to see it.

I just made one last night using the thick sliced bacon weave and bratwurst as the sausage. I was about 2 bacon strips shy for the size so I’ll be altering the 5×5 of bacon to fit the roll next time. I tried breakfast sausage once too. It was awful and I wont do that again. My advice on the jalapeno version is to use a “cage”. The kind you use to grill med/large fish so that you can flip them. I can fit about 9 in the one that I have and it prevents the slippery suckers from ending up down in the coals! It’s big enough to not squash them too. I don’t have a site for recipes and I got here via an email from my brother. Cooking bbq is my way of conserving my light bill..LOL I dont like to have all that heat in my house in the summertime.

I think that you sir are well on your way to Sainthood! This dish is certainly a miracle and if you die of a heart attack i would consider you a martyr… Really though this an amazing recipe,

I am a chef and have done this recipe a few times now and fed it to the staff at my restaurant. Most recently (for the customers of the restaurant) I used a mixture of lamb shoulder, pork butt and belly that i ground coarsely and seasoned with star anise, fennel seed, cayenne etc… Spread the meat over saran wrap layered thinly sliced cured/smoked veal tongue, then a thin layer of fig port jam. Rolled that up and cooked it in a vacuum sealed bag in a thermo-circulator (hot water bath where the temperature can be controlled to the 10th of a degree). then cooled it, cold smoked it, wrapped it up in Prosciutto and then sliced it up and served it as a terrine.
All this was inspired by by your amazing recipe! Thank you

My brother, son and I made our first Bacon Explosion last Saturday for the NFL Draft. Bacon smoked BBQ heaven!!! We smoked with hickory. Never had anything like it, it’s now a tradition, thank you!

I’d like to make a Bacon Explosion using the spicy lamb sausage a local pizzeria uses as a topping, best sausage I’ve ever had, it’d be perfect.

Anyone have an idea for an alternative to the Johnsonville Mild Italian we used? A friend of mine thinks Mozzarella might be good as a bond to hold the spirals together on the plate. Anyone tried that?

Jason April 30, 2009

@Dave – Try finding a gourmet meat shop in your town. Chances are they carry some fantastic artisan sausage. In regards to cheese, just be prepared for it leak out. If you’re having trouble keep the rolling together, try to rolling as tight as possible and squeeze out all the air bubbles. A thinner layer of sausage that’s rolled over a couple times works better than a thick that’s only rolled once. Enjoy!

Dave April 30, 2009

Jason, good idea about finding a gourmet meat shop, I definitely want to make one with a spicy lamb sausage.

The roll was very tight, maybe too tight for Johnsonville sausage. The consistency of the sausage was just a little too firm which is probably why I thought of the lamb sausage which is coarser. It rolled beautifully – I meant the spiral came apart after it was cut and served. I did however mention trying Mozzarella to my brother and he said, “Don’t change a thing you idiot!” Or something to that effect. :-)

But definitely yes, a thinner layer of sausage which means either extra bacon weave, or cut the sausage down to 1 3/4 – 1 1/2 pounds.

I’ll report back after I find some lamb sausage. :-) Thanks.

I recently lost my job thanks to this shitty economy, and I’ve been contemplating suicied. Thanks for providing me with the perfect means to end my time on this world ;-)

I have my 4 pounds of meat ready to go tomorrow, and a bag of Hickory chips for the smoker. I’ve got BBQ sauce to baste. I’m also considering a couple add ins too. I thought about Cheese, but wasnt sure how a cheese filled sausage and bacon log would do on the smoker… but I AM going to use my home made dry rub, AND, for extra baconey goodness, I am going to sprinkle the insides with some tasty Bacon Salt!

I plan on very slowly killing myself via meat overdose thanks to the Bacon Explosion, and the first item that sent me on this suicidal oddyssey, the Ham Dog. Oh yes, tomorrow will be a good day to die… errr, I mean, consume unhealthy quantities of smoked meat.

Actually, now that I think about it, being laid 0ff has given me more time to experiement with the smoker… I think it was getting lonely… I don’t want to die! NO, I must LIVE to eat, nay, to FEAST upon bacon filled smoked meaty goodness! I will consume this food of the gods and become immortal!

Thank you, That is all.

We made our first one the weekend of the NFL draft with italian sausage, Neuskes bacon, italian snausage and an italian 7 cheese blend in the middle. We used Bone Suckin’ rub and BBQ sauce. Placed it in the torpedo smoker for 3 hours and, after it cooled, we threw it in the fridge. The next morning with the 8 of us a little…umm..dehydrated, we sliced her up and fried it with eggs. Needless to say, it didn’t last for more than a tenth of the time it took to prepare, but it was so worth it. Not sure what to try next, but thanks to all who posted recipies. I’ll probably just pick one and try it. Hard to go wrong with bacon.

Hey aj, what possibly possessed you to post on this blog? I assume you’ve never had sausage and bacon for breakfast? There is no difference except that your breakfast meats are fried. I think I’ll make you one and send it to you.

Jason May 18, 2009

@PetePete – I wouldn’t recommend cooking in a crockpot because the rendered grease from the bacon will pool in the bottom and prevent the outside layer from crisping up. For now…your best best for indoor cooking is to use a stove top smoker, or bake it on a raised rack sitting on a cookie sheet.

Here’s what you do. Layer pepper jack cheese down over the weave, then stuff the sausauge with jalapenos and slather some southern style hot sauce on that. For the fried bacon in the middle, combine the bacon, some BBQ sauce, seasoning, and half the bacon fat from the pan. Then roll it up as follows and drizzle the other half of the bacon fat atop the ready-to-smoke meat brick and let ‘er ride. This came out excellent.

I immediatly went to the local pork shop, Dubai has limited pig parts availble, and paid through my spinchter for the right to buy cook and eat pork in a muslim country. For what you could build and cook in the USA for about 15 to 20 dollars, I spent almost 200. But you know what? It was worth it. I of course had to buy italian sausages and de-case them, but soaking them in Gentlemen Jack for a day helped, and the healthy dose of cajun spices. The bacon roll was devoured, one hundred percent, and all the drippings were sopped up with anything edible and on hand..

It is a widely known fact that vegetarian is an old Native American word for “Poor Hunter”! You dumb fucking vegans, don’t you realize that humans eating meat is what helped us evolved from living in trees, to the infancy of space exploration. Why, because the fat from the meat they were eating made human brains grow bigger. Notice there were no Vegans on Star Trek, that’s because 400 years from now, us meat eaters will be exploring the galaxy, and your dumb asses will have died off, God I love evolution.

@the greater of this recipe.

I am going to try this soon, cuz it sounds fucking awesome. I am willing to bet the smell of this on the grill is just too much. With any luck, this is what we’ll be cooking the day humans make first contact. Till then it’ll satiate that need, that primal desire for pork. The hamburger idea sounded good too, maybe one could bast it with beef stock while it’s in the smoker, so the beef doesn’t dry out. You could use a turkey baster for this I’m willing to bet.

Looks like someone here earlier stated, “a wrapped in heartattack”. looks tasty but I couldn’t possibly try it.

Can you get this with cheese,,,,,
and a side order of sour cream and butter?

Leon July 26, 2009

The vegans will not admit to this but: Vegetarin diets from birth produce shorter adult heights and boys with smaller penuis. Please pass the Bacon. You can share the fatty with your friends and not eat the whole thing. A little of everything is good for you. We enjoy the Bacon Explosoin for what it is, would eat it every day if we could, but lets get real this is treat food to be used at celebrations.

Frenchy July 27, 2009

what on earth….. all that bacon can not be physicaly good for the body…all that could clog your ateries and end up killing you…dont get me wrong bacon is good, but to much of anything is very bad….if you order that you should order for like 2-3 people with healthier food on the side. That is just a axadent waiting to happen…… Just keep that in mind.

kittyOnDreams July 27, 2009

I dont think that it could be that bad for you! it looks good and might be the most delicious thing you have ever eaten. And besides if it was bad for you there would be a giant worning “DO NOT EAT FOOD, CAUSES PROBLEMS!” so i dont think we have anything to really worry about.

Jason July 27, 2009

@Frenchy – A full Bacon Explosion actually contains 10-12 servings, so you can invite over a whole horde of friends to enjoy it with!!!

Randomness July 28, 2009

There’s no warning sign on many food products since it’s food. I mean u can eat 20 packages of butter but I aint saying that’s a good idea. unless u want a heartattack ofc.

That thing looks big enough for a whole family (around 4ppl).
I mean sure something can be good for u in reasonable amounts. but that one is a ticking bomb.

Randomness July 28, 2009

oh forgot to add: I’d go with what Jason just said when I think about it. better with some veggies on the side along with it than taking the risk. that’s my advice.

Ben July 30, 2009

Made this, don’t think I put enough sauce in the middle, but it still tasted awesome.

Dominic DeStefano July 30, 2009

I’ve made this on 4 separate occasions!
Frigin’ delicious!
The last time I went ahead and added cheddar cheese to the center spiral.
This little ingredient addition is also a wonderful WONDERFUL change.
Be careful what cheese you use, as cheddar tends to sweat ALOT!

David August 2, 2009

death in a roll. must be american. no wonder they have one of, if not the highest obesity rate in the world.. =.=”

Bubba HoTep August 2, 2009

David, basically fuck off and die, slowly and painfully.. when this culinary delight is done right, most of the killer grease has dripped away, leaving behind the best tasting dead pig you will ever put through your pie hole.

Bubba HoTep August 2, 2009

I made two new ones when I was at home in the States a week ago. While shopping in Wally Martinez (Wal-Mart) I stumbles across prepared Red Chorizo in the meat case. Replacing the Italian with Chorizo was a stroke of genius.. I always cook two, so the second experiment was mild (not the sweet) Italian stuffed with boiled and deveined shrimp coated in Tony’s.. Can you spell YUMMY?

David August 3, 2009

Haha, I knew I was going to see some sort of reaction like Bubba’s one coming.. You see Bubba, I would fuck off and die, but I would have to eat that death in a roll thing in order to do so. May I ask, how big are you Bubba? As big as the artist Bubba Sparxx? Because if you are then damn, the whole world has an earthquake coming their way. Oh yeah, i can spell YUMMY. However, I’m surprised that YOU can. Anyway, everybody check this out, it shows what all that fat does to your head..

Bubba HoTep August 3, 2009

David, are you asking my size or my weight, this depending on your slant, in either case you are still repectfully requested to FOAD. One would be stupid to eat something like this everyday. However, the equation Food=Life and Good Food = Grease still holds true.

David August 3, 2009

Im just responding the same way people would respond to me, but yeah nothing personal so no disrespect. The last two sentences of your comment, I fully agree on and respect.. Its just comments from other people saying that they “will eat this bad boy all week,” which really made me say what I said the first time round. But yeah, we all good Bubba?

Bubba HoTep August 3, 2009

David, I live and work in the Middle East. I would love to cook one every week, but with the price of Pork in muslim countries, and the quantity of nitrates used to preserve it, restricts the urge to smoke and eat. What I bought for 21 dollars at Wally Martinez and made two, I pay 70 US dollars for the ingredients for one here. And they have never heard of Chorizo….or Rub..or the parts to put one together..

Fresch Fisch August 3, 2009

I’m making one this weekend.

One bacon explosion is equal to smoking a carton of cigarettes.

Jason Katzwinkel August 3, 2009

I’ve tried my own version of this. It wasn’t nearly as elegant as the article above, but it was damn fine. I encourage anybody to give this recipe a try with any number of liberal interpretations. It seems you can’t go wrong.

Anybody who is unwilling to bring a Bacon Explosion into his or her life is robbing themselves of a sublime experience.

SK_eye August 5, 2009

Hahaha this stuff is way good but its like solidified fat. Eat it and weep. We made and ate for my human bio class. My teacher figured it out and if you cut it into about ten pieces i think it was, its 10,000 calories a slice! Excellent… You do that math. What is the whole log worth?

Wagtube August 5, 2009

SK, you are way off. the Explosion is 5000 calories. So cut into 10 peices you are off by 9500 calories/slice. 500 calories a slice is nothing to worry about. If you’re worried, you could put some lettuce on it, and use wheat bread. 10,000 calrories! That’s an entire meal for Michael Phelps which includes…well, a TON of food. LMAO!

Maryanne August 6, 2009

I only read about 1/2 the comments on this, so forgive me if this has already been mentioned. I am thinking that this would be a great breakfast food too. Instead of the rub & bbq sauce use a little maple syrup drizzled in the middle. Use Maple bacon and breakfast sausage. My mouth is watering just thinking about that! YUM!

Wagtube August 6, 2009

If you get that to work, make sure you post your masterpiece here. It sounds amazing. Make sure you use some maple or apple wood,that is, if you smoke or grill it. I’m thinking a honey, syrup, cinnamon “BBQ” with the ingredients you mentioned would be unreal. Nice work. Has anyone tried this?

Matt August 9, 2009

Polished one off with honey. Came out great. Syrup was actually mentioned as alternative in between chewing and wiping delicious grease off our chins with our forearms. Syrup would be a great opposite to the saltiness (think chocolate & pretzels).

Didn’t have a smoker for this. Top grill rack, aluminum foil shield at 225 for 1 hour, (2) 15 minute sessions on bottom rack with basting and honey drizzle.

Strongly suggest proper placement of the torpedo on the correct bacon seam. Otherwise, butcher string is needed as I discovered about 30 minutes in.

Delicious. Has already been requested to become a staple at all tailgates.

Tasty and also helping to fund advanced degrees for cardiologist’s kids.

GOOD_AND_BAD August 10, 2009

I think yr both right and wrong.

it can be good for an example as breakfast as one said. since u’ll burn it off all day and wont get that hungry for long afterwards either cuz of the amount of fat. and I’m not talking about eating the whole fucking things as breakfast more like 1/5 at most. and that is if U are fucking starving.
otherwise I wouldn’t recommend it at all. cuz it’s not the kinda food u eat a few hours b4 u go to bed really unless u wanna go up in weight or want a weaker heart. but most of u are smart enough to realize that one :D

Reverand Dave August 10, 2009

Blessings on you my child, For you have brought to this man a gift greater than untold wealth. I am a devout porkaholic. I can now die in peace with the knowledge that porkalogy has grown to great heights.

Bubba HoTep August 11, 2009

Last weekend, I made some homemade pork chorizo, stuffed it with homemade beef chorizo, marinated in Jack Daniels. Woven bacon and Grub Rubbed. For the girls I made one a little less sporty, lamb mince mixed with ground pork loin and a center made of portobello shrooms sauteed in semsame oil and filled with motzorella and cheddar.

Sweet William August 11, 2009

For all you real players out there this needs a healthy helping of extra sharp cheddar and then cooked on a Smoker type BBQ (I use a traeger) then and only then can you truly appreciate the caveman in yourself GROINK……

Daniel August 12, 2009

Can’t wait to try it!!!! Yummmmmmyy! Must go good with Wine or beer !

David August 14, 2009

Tried this a couple weeks ago, took about 2 hours and 15 minutes on medium low on the BBQ, it turned out amazing. I’ll definitely building another. I am just trying to figure out what other spices I can put in the roll now.

bobby August 17, 2009

hey,i just found this bbq-site today and i feld in love with that bacon-explosion.i will starting to make one very,very soon.but:
question 1:do i putt the coat of sauce on the entire surface before i putt it on the bbq or when it come off and still hot as hell?
question 2:is honey a good idea for a coating or is this over the top?
p.s.:nice looking site,great foto’s,well done 10/10
greetings from Belgium,Europe.

Jason August 17, 2009

@bobby – Glaze the Bacon Explosion with sauce after you take it off the grill, or during the last 5-10 minutes of cooking. Honey works great as well, especially if you’re serving on warm biscuits!!!

bobby August 17, 2009

@jason-thank you for the quick respons & tip!!

We made this last night for the end of summer bash. In our version, though we used pretty hefty bacon slices, the 2 lbs of sausage was just too much and completely overwhelmed the the bacon flavor. We’ll use less next time. And since this was a huge hit, it will be made again. Serve the sliced piece in between toasted hamburger buns, better than hamburgers any day!

Hi Beth. You can cook it on the grill. Keep the temp low until it hits 160 internal. Make sure it’s indirect heat and I would advise putting a pan to catch the grease drippings or you might end up with an explosion on fire!

Of course the danger here is why stop at sausage and bacon. Why not throw in some pepperoni? Or how about a bit of swiss cheese? Or go a little Elvis and instead of pork sausage, use ground beef, then add a layer of spiced peanut butter to the beef before rolling it up. The possibilities are endless!

Maybe 1.5 lbs of sausage next time and some nice cheese in with the crumbled bacon. Id say TRY IT if only to discover the beauty of the “bacon weave” for other recipes…maybe pork tenderloin wrapped in the weave. YUMMY!!

Jim CT September 29, 2009

I am testing my variation on this recipe, code-named the “Ahmadinejad”. Replacing crisp bacon inside with crisp thin sliced beef and adding smoked cheddar to melt and smother. It makes it the second-least kosher thing on the planet, under Iran’s dope of a leader.

I have made at least 10 of these on the smoker for our football Sunday parties. I use my own rubs and sauce mixes. We like our food spicy so these mixes do add another dimension to the recipe. The key is in the rolling. Have used both hot and mild sausage meat. I remember the first time we had these at our Sunday party, made two and were gone in less than an hour.

ShyGuy October 7, 2009

I really like how crusty the bacon looks after cooking on the grill. Someday I will make one of these for myself.

Jocko October 12, 2009

What a marvelous piece of meat. Looked like a rubic’s’ cube, but tasty nonetheless. However, the meal was not complete until I topped it off with a piece of chocolate coconut cream cheesecake – with sprinkles of grated lipitor.

SassaFrass88 October 13, 2009

You all need to do your homework on animal fat. It does not clog arteries. This is an old ‘wives-tale’ generated in the late 70′s, early 80′s. One that the USDA is not willing to spend money on properly researching and applying to changing their beloved food pyramid.

Eat animal fat. It’s the sugar that calcifies the plaque in your arteries!

Eat bacon and all the red meat you want! Down with the low-fat craze!

Mike Greer October 14, 2009

This is an amazing treat. You think it will taste really, really good -and it actually tastes even better than you imagine. My buddies and I have nicknamed it “A Synergy of Pork.”

Cooked one for a bachelor party last month. Had to buy a coal-water smoker. Never owned/operated a smoker before and I overdid the research and overthought all the complications that could arise. Ultimately I went to Home Depot bought the cheapest smoker they had, the Brinkmann smoke and grill free standing R2D2 looking thing. Bought hickory chunks and kingsford coals. You can pour a little marinade into the water tray that sits above the coals for a little extra kick to the explosion. This project had an added difficulty rating because the bachelor party began in the morning, and I had a midnight Moby concert the night before. I actually did not light the smoker until 3AM. So I drank and smoked, tended the coals and water dish, read neomarxist texts, and drank and continued to smoke, from 3 to 6:30 AM. I had to go a little longer because you have to really fight to keep the heat up on a Brinkmann, but it is worth the results… when done right you get the product as pictured or better.

Rick October 17, 2009

Friend turned me onto this (Ryan). Keeps asking when I’m going to make it. Well today I made it and now I’m not sure if I can share it Too damn good!!

Wagtube October 17, 2009

I’m thinking using ground beef mixed with habaneros and a good mexican cheese mix served with sour cream and salsa. I’ve made 4 of the original recipie, and I’d like something new. Don’t get me wrong, the 4 that I’ve made have been devoured with extreme prejudice, but deer camp is coming up, so I’d like to try a second flavor. Any advice?

Andre October 18, 2009

Wagtube, you’re right on track. Was at TX-OU game and this guy took this but stuffed it with cheese, onions, and jalapenos. After slicing it, he corn tortillas on one rack of the smoker and would put a slice on the tortilla along with a dab of sour cream and salsa. I quit at 5 because I didn’t want to appear a hog! Ridiculous how good it was for breakfast!

Emilie October 19, 2009

It’s on the BBQ! I’m so excited! I’m using Memphis Blue’s BBQ (Vancouver/Kelowna BC) rub and sauce so it’ll be more Canadian but I also used double smoked boar bacon and Spolumbo’s sausage so fingers crossed because it’s like twice as expensive as regular explosion. I’ll let you all know how it is in about two hours!

Emilie October 20, 2009

IT WAS SO AWESOME! use good shit when you make this! it’s worth the time and expense to gather the ingredients! I’m a chick who lives with 4 guys and we had 16 ppl for dinner. everyone who had some said it was awesome. I’m so proud of myself!

For grins… I did a weight watchers add of points to this. The total (varies with what you use somewhat) was 240 points. That is a huge amount of calories. But… say server 20 pieces of it… only 12 points or 40 pieces… 6 points.

I went the extreme and plan to try a version of this using turkey bacon and Boca sasuage. That brings it down to 109 points total. 20 pieces = 5 points!

It would be an interesting taste test to do one of each and perhaps one made with 1 pound of each.

Awesome guys… I will grill/roast it sometime!

This is AWESOME!

I Cannot wait to try this – However, i have already begun to change this up a bit. This needs heat!

This Needs Peppers. Explosion? oh yes. How about a layer of blanched peeld pablano peppers in between the cooked bacon and the italain sausage layer and then on top of the cooked broken back thin sliced jalapeno’s ( I have dried seasoned habanero dust that I make that I could put on mine.

This BBQ chef has seen the light and your awesome recipie has given me great ideas.

Zetti November 12, 2009

As a licensed Food Sanitation Manager, I need to weigh-in on the proper internal temperatures for cooking meat. The FDA recommends a minimum internal temperature of 145 for all whole cuts of meat (beef, lamb, pork, veal, fish) with the exception of poultry. Since most food borne illness is transferred by bacteria on the surface of meat, when the interior reaches 145, the exterior is probably more than 200 degrees, so any bacteria on the surface is killed. This is not true for ground meat, such as sausage. Because the grinding process transfers the exterior to the interior, any bacteria that was on the surface would then be incorporated in the interior, requiring a higher recommended cooking temperature. That’s why people are dying on a regular basis from eating improperly cooked hamburgers. The recommended minimum internal temperature for ground meat is 155. BTW- Trichinosis is extremely rare in 2009 with about a dozen cases reported in the U.S. each year as compared to 80 million cases of food borne illness. Most of these are from farm raised or wild pigs. Reason for that is, in 2009 the life expectancy of your average pig is about 9 months, which is not enough time for the Trichina worm to make its way from the pig’s hoof to the internal flesh. BTW- the Trichina worm is actually killed at 132 or -35. Aside from all that- what a fuckin’ recipe! I’ve had constant wood since viewing it. Better than viagra. Can’t wait to spring this one on my unsuspecting Super Bowl crew.

I have just put one of these together and it is cooking as I type. I made it for my husband to take to deer camp tomorrow. Wish I could be there to see the response when they all dig in. I guess I should have made a miniature one for myself, as the aroma is filling the air as it cooks, and is making my mouth water. I think I may just do that as I bought extra ingredients. Gotta go make it, which my husband will most likely help me eat it.(He won’t be able to wait until camp)

Love the recipe, have one on the smoker now. I’m drooling waiting for it to get done. I read the majority of the messages, and I’m dying to try some of the breakfast recipes.
I ended up switching the Italian sausage out for ground pork. I also use onions, garlic, sharp cheddar, and KC masterpiece bbq sauce in the roll. I’ll add jalapenos next time!

Here are a few pics from my first attempt:

The small roll had a pound of mild Italian sausage, and the bigger roll had a pound of mild and a pound of hot Italian sausage… These are great on a Kaiser roll.

SCHITTY November 22, 2009

OMG….i just got done rolling my first BACON EXPLOSION !!!! I of course did not use the same meats… I added ‘ PEPPERONNI ; HAM ; MONTERY JACK CHEESE ; AND CHEEDAR .. 5 lbs bacon 4 lbs of itailian sausage .. had to roll it length ways cuz it would of been way to big. About 5 inches tall. I had to make an addition of woven bacon to the original to make it perfect.Im using a TREAGOR grill. Love my treagor. Im expecting it to take 5 or 6 hours at 225. Im going to sit here and drink until its done , then give my liver a break and work on my heart to explode. gonna be a good weekend. i will post pics later.

Wagtube November 29, 2009

Deer camp ’09. I made two of these for my hunting buddies on a torpedo smoker. One of them was the classic Eyetalian snausage recipie. The second was with ground beef filled with habaneros and thai peppers, crushed red pepper and cayanne. They were both brilliant and fit the different tastes of my boys. I used hardwood charcoal, and one packet of hickory. I used a healthy helping of cheeses in each, but I think smoking kills it. Any advice on that? I’d be happy to swap recipies.

Justice Pie November 29, 2009

I made one of these for our Thanksgiving and it was a hit! I’ve got requests for Christmas now. I definitely learned a few things about rolling the sausage and baking it in the oven, hopefully the next time I’ll make it better. Awesome, awesome treat! I’ll send the photos!

Jason November 30, 2009

@Wagtube – What do you mean by “smoking kills it”? Are you referring to overwhelming the flavor with smoke, or just having all of your cheese melt out during the cooking process?

Pat November 30, 2009

I found this website via Stumble! a couple of months ago. I have been waiting with anticipation to actually make this thing and finally over Thanksgiving I made one with my buddies. It was AMAZING! We already decided that we’re going to have a cookoff over Christmas to see who can construct the tastiest Bacon Explosion! Thanks for this wonderful gift you’ve given to the world!!

Jason December 1, 2009

@Pat – I’ll give you a hint. Jalapenos and provel cheese!!! :)

McBacon December 2, 2009

dude i made this thing literally 5+ years ago.. i am way ahead of the curve when it comes to bacon.. it was the same thing, down to the uncased sausage and the precooked bacon in the middle, except i added a pork loin (soaked in jack daniels, brown sugar, soy sauce, and garlic for 2 days) however it was not a big hunk of pork loin through the center… I spiral cut the pork loin so that it unrolled like a roll of paper towels to lay flat in a big square and used that as my base to build upon. rolled it all up, wrapped it in bacon and tressed it.. and then screw the bbq sauce, I took the drippings from the pan (essentially bacon and pork grease) and made gravy. Cut off big disc slices and put it on scali bread with a gravy drizzle.. why? because I’m a visionary. I have the pics with the time stamps to prove it. I brought it to a Patriots game and 10 guys who had been fired up and energetic up to that point got knocked on their ass by the ensuing food coma. The bacon and garlic burps in the stands were smelled by the people around us all game long. GLORIOUS DAY…

John December 4, 2009

This recipe worked very well. No fear about the fat and cholesterol. Obesity and heart issues weren’t a problem until processed foods (grain, dairy) came along. I eat a Paleo diet (caveman foods…meat, fish, veggies, fruit), I eat all the time, and I’m amazed at how lean I can remain.

This bacon explosion is well within my diet, and it’s one of my son’s favorites!

max December 8, 2009

A buddy of mine made this, but excluded the crumbled bacon and added scallops, chives, and a sharp white cheese. Smoked for about 3 hours.

It came out pretty well. It was VERY salty however, even for me, and I enjoy the salt. I do remember the sausage being the main flavor profile.

So maybe it should be called the Sausage Explosion (non-porn edition). :)

Vassmaster December 8, 2009

Was it me or did I see a PETA post that said…”you have won… we will pack up and go home.” I believe I did and I believe victory can be declared – Thank you Bacon Explosion, your are the bomb!

Ben December 9, 2009

Rob December 9, 2009

I tried this recipe over the summer. It was amazing. I’d forgotten about it until now, and if my fridge hadn’t died last week I’d be running out to get the ingredients to make another right now. I will be having another one of these in the next week.

John (JNL) December 10, 2009

Just finished my second try at this a week or so ago. Just as good (maybe a little bit better) the second time. Lessons learned: 1) I took sweet onion, sliced and carmalized it then let cool. Added to inner crumble. 2) From Jan 2, 2009 comment, did all layers but first on parchment. So much easier to roll very tight and then placed onto the first bacon layer.

Awesome. I would never have made the initial without your great pictorial layout. Would you mind if I added (with many proper links back) at my pages?

Slim December 11, 2009

I will be making about 5 of these this weekend. I will smoke them, then freeze them and give them as Christmas gifts. Can you think of a better gift, than the gift of meat?

Jan December 11, 2009

I want this for Christmas dinner. The only way to improve it would be to add cheese, lots of it!

FB December 13, 2009

I made one of these with grated mozzarella rolled inside. I brought it to an office party and it was gone in minutes, finished before any other appetizer. Excellent!

Jeff December 16, 2009

I had my first B.E. this past weekend at a party. Delicious! I had it plain and made a sandwich with some. The sandwich rocked. The first thing I thought it needed was something else in the middle like cheese. Guess I’m not alone. I will be trying this myself.

Jack December 16, 2009

I’m making one for a company party tomorrow. Massive coronary’s for all!

Wagtube December 16, 2009

I’ve made a half dozen of these beauties. The most recent was with ground beef, carmelized onions, habeneros, and thai peppers. I also used an entire bag of cheese in the middle. Everytime I’ve used cheese, it seems to just dissappear in the smoking process. Has anyone had any luck with cheese additions? Now that I have my new Traeger, I will be making some for Christmas. Merry Christmas bacon lovers!

Awesome recipe – definitely a crowd-pleaser! There are not too many main dishes that illicit the response you get when you bring one of these fatties to the table.

jeff January 7, 2010

The ambulance is here, they wont let me take the leftovers with me….THEY’LL HAVE TO WAIT !!!

It's Me again January 8, 2010

Oh Boy you’re going to love this!

I replaced the Bacon with Turkey Bacon – the second layer is Tofurkey and I layered a mixture of spinach/sea weed into a mash and let it dry to a sheet so I could slid it in…..

I am Just Messing with you, LOL I would not eat that Crap.

I just got a message that you should make two at a time. Hell yeah you should make two , hell make 4 … It’s like car pooling for goodness sakes. Think of all the saved heat and smoke you’re saving when you do big batches.

I am all for the pablano in between the sausage and the crunchy cooked bacon pieces But I would like to let you guys know that any sort of veggie added makes this more perishable.

I have a Habanero answer for this recipe, but It has been reduced to literal DUST. Making it not perishable and maximizing the heat.

As far as cheese goes , You guys that have been adding cheese directly in the roll before its cooked – I am sure you have had some problems with that. I mean when heat the food to proper levels your cheese will bleed through , grease up , leave pockets and what have you.

what i decided to do was to use a dehydrated cheese powder that i found in my grocery store bulk section. and really work it into the sausage. what this does is rehydrate while cooking but only with the meat juice that would have run right out. in short – it’s amaze.

Then if for some reason that’s not enough cheesy in you’re meat you should probably just slice that roll and lay the slices on the side and put a big ass slab a cheese on there ya greedy bastard. LOL pop them in the oven and broil the cheese.

Hey that’s not too bad of a idea come to think of it.

2) Meat needs to be @ room temp when putting on the grill – Cook time was 4 hrs, 10 min.
3) Gonna try pepper bacon on the next attempt.
4) The act of cooking this bad boy promotes the consumption of WAY too much alcohol.
5) Cardiologist phone number is now on speed-dial.
6) Briquettes are my friend.
7) So ‘king good!!!!!

Aaron January 14, 2010


Here is the oven recipe:

Or you can buy a fully smoked one, which you can heat up in your oven in about 40 minutes.

back again - January 14, 2010

I just wrapped it in aluminum and put it in a raster on a rack like i do when i make salami.

170 for 1 hour – turn it – then 170 for 2 more hours.

take the aluminum off and put back in for 30 minuts turning at 15.
worked excellently for slicing. or you can food saver it and toss it in the fridge. it will get hard like hard salami in three days.
awesome sandwich stuff!

John (JNL) January 14, 2010

A year ago I tried the oven when the winter weather here in Buffalo basically ruled out my smoker. I cooked similar to link above but only at 225 until it got to 160. Then pulled it out and cranked the oven to 450. While out I basted with home made BBQ sauce and then put back in until 170. Actually not that bad.

Bob Smith February 3, 2010

I’ve tried the original version and was wondering if you guys have done any variations on it. I thought it was a little dry inside and needed more barbecue sauce, which is easy enough to fix. What about other filling additions such as a little grated pepper jack cheese or maybe chopped smoked jalapenos? Just wondering if anyone has expperimented

Kevin February 3, 2010

I came across this recipe just in time for a weekend with the guys. I’m thinking…breakfast Saturday…

Steve February 4, 2010

so you guys made a fatty and gave it a fancy name? what exactly did you invent that you are coppywriting? the fatty has been made for a long time befor this and people have used bacon for a stuffing befor.

but nice pictures of the process.

Aaron February 4, 2010


Yes, but since it’s so difficult to understand, we have our own sausage, our own sauce, and our own rub used exclusively in the recipe. Clearly the fatty has been around a long time, and we didn’t say we invented it. We did, however, invent this particular recipe (sausage, sauce, rub) and the name Bacon Explosion is Trademarked. We’re copyright the content on this blog (you can’t copyright a product).

So all the haters in smoking meat forums can reference this comment since my response over there went unanswered.

Aaron February 4, 2010


There are endless possibilities for breakfast ideas. They’re great on a biscuit with a bit of honey, or in a casserole!

Happy grilling everyone!

Bob Smith February 5, 2010

I’m gonna try a variation for the SuperBowl. 1/2 breakfast sausage 1/2 italian sausage, smoked red onion minced up, smoked jalapeno minced up and some grated pepper jack cheese. Plus I think I needed more barbecue sauce than I used the first time. You see, the original recipe just wasn’t quite fattening enough :)

Wagtube February 6, 2010

Bob, Cheese is tricky when slow cooking. Try some high melt cheese. Hi Mountain has some good blends. Grated cheese will disappear. I’ve tried the cheese thing on a few of these bad boys with grated and other cheeses, but they never survive on my Traeger. The high melt cheese is key. Any other thoughts from fatty or PETA need not apply. BE peeps, let me know what you think.

Hugh February 6, 2010

Dan February 7, 2010

We are making this for a super bowl party today. I grew up eating bacon onion rolls, so we thought we would add onions. We put the onions in with the fried bacon. I will let you know how it turns out.
Your doing a good thing at this Website.
Thank You!

Andrew February 9, 2010

Would that thing help with a hangover?

I usually eat egg & bacon rolls for hangovers so I’m just wondering, either way I’m still gonna make one just for the hell of it since I’m aussie and the Superbowl isn’t that big of a deal over here.

Yago February 9, 2010

Bob Smith February 9, 2010

Second year in a row I’ve made one of these for the Superbowl. I’m still having the same problem with mine being too dry. Is anyone else having a problem with dryness down through the middle? I used more barbecue sauce thinking that would help, but not much luck. Thought about using a fattier sausage but the sausages available in my stores are pretty much all the same as far as fat content. Any suggestions out there for a moister product?

Marc Honey February 9, 2010

So the only real changes that work for me are these: 1) pepper bacon in a bigger weave 6×7 or 7×8, 2) maple flavored Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage with a LITTLE sweet onion added, plus spreading the sausage mix out on a sprayed cookie sheet to roll, instead of on top of the weave. 3)baste last 30 min. with maple syrup cut 50% w/water. Dry inside…I don’t see how! Smoke mine 2 1/2 hr over mesquite at far end of a big ass smoker so it doesn’t “char”. Masterpiece every time.

Jason February 9, 2010

@Bob Smith – My suggestion is to cook your Bacon Explosion at a higher temperature, but don’t take the internal temperature of the meat quite as high. This will allow the outside bacon to crisp up, while still trapping all of the sausage juices inside. Try cooking at 300 degrees until the internal temp reaches 150 degrees. If that doesn’t work, then your next option is to inject the Bacon Explosion full of melted butter once it’s done cooking. That should add plenty of moisture back into the meat!!!! Enjoy!

Bret February 10, 2010

My friends whipped up this recipe last Sunday – OMG, it was Gooodd!!!

mushrome(Trevor) February 10, 2010

Ernie February 11, 2010

Excellent I can’t wait to make my second. I have already decided to make two next time to experiment a little. Great idea. Made me shit like a donkey. I baked in oven at 350 for about 2 hours or until all bacon was crisp. Spicy sausage is next.

[...] The Bacon Explosion is one of the most decadent things I have seen since the Turducken. (See below.) The Bacon Explosion is a recipe made famous by a team of Kansas City BBQ experts called Burnt Finger BBQ. An interesting-looking meatloaf-type dish, it consists of strips of bacon tightly woven into a square mat, which is seasoned and then rolled around a filling of ground Italian sausage and cooked bacon pieces. The 4 pound loaf is then transferred to a backyard smoker, and cooked for 2-3 hours, slathered in BBQ sauce. It is said to contain at least 5,000 calories and 500 grams of fat. This is a link to the original recipe. [...]

The hole process was a joy.. but the taste was out of this world!

MIke May 16, 2010

I got me some prime cut peppered bacon today and I have tried many versions of this so far.

I have liked every single one but I prefer the Habanero one so far.
On this try I am going a whole new route. I have roasted a whole chicken, while it was still really warm i took all eh bones out – I have green Chilies frozen and vacuum packed from last years Garden harvest – i am going to do the chopped chicken green Chili Habanero bacon explosion this time. The chicken I plan to hammer out on a plastic dough sheet – white meat sheet – then dark meat sheet, layer of green chopped green chilies in between the two sheets with dried Habanero dust on the outside of the white meat sheet after both are rolled into a bacon explosion center and then do the wrap.

I am thinking this will be awesome – My Sunday project.

I hate germany, we dont have all these nice sauces und seasonings :( i’d love to make a real american bbq but its hard to get good ingredients also we dont use a smoker at our bbq’s and that pretty much suck :(

The Bacon Explosion is like eating 10 KFC drumsticks, fried, in one sitting.

The only food not made better by adding bacon is ice cream.

Bacon Is Health Food May 25, 2010

Lies and more lies. Bacon is the most healthy meat on Earth. Heart attacks and strokes are caused by stress, age, or physical damage. Diabetes is caused by genetics. Get over yourselves you dang anti-pork Nazis, let the bacon flow!

Derek May 26, 2010

Man that thing is awesome. Made one last night. Did mine a little different. I dont like Italian sausage so I used good ol ground pork sausage. I also split open some links of pork boudin and mixed with the sausage before I put it in a gallon ziplock and rolled with a pin to make a sausage square. When I rolled it all up I almost cried. The last time I got that emotional was the day my daughter was born hahaha.

Keep the good recipes coming. Y’all are changing the world one stomach at a time.

THANK YOU, Thank You, thank you for giving us a recipe that justifies using 4lbs of great tasting meat! The recipe was easy and after each step it looked EXACTLY like your pics (will try to submit them).

Taste? Meh – I was anticipating more smoked bacon taste and found it was overpowered with the mild italian sausage, BBQ sauce/rubs, and hickory smoke. Will try it in the oven, sans hickory smoke – personal taste on this one. Would be cool to try with ground chicken or unseasoned pork. That’ll be next week’s heart clogger experiment!

Thanks again for the recipe – lots of fodder for this summer! …oh and to the naysayers: The roll is pretty lean – given that most of the beautifully tasting fat drips away…sigh :(

Jon in WA June 21, 2010

Just a thought… would laying a bed of raw bacon on top of the sausage, then rolling it up work? I was thinking about that today when I smoked a fatty (that sounds SO wrong!) made up of maple flavored Jimmy Dean, the bacon weave, and stuffed with scrambled eggs, cheese, onions, and bacon bits. It was my first fatty and DEElicious.

Just wondering if raw bacon in the middle would cook properly in the smoker.

Johnny June 21, 2010

I use Jack Daniels BBQ, and OMG! My Heart died and want to heaven. This is the greatest BBQ I ever had…

Aaron June 21, 2010


Not recommended. Raw bacon on the inside will not cook fully. You can fry the bacon to your liking however.

Rick June 21, 2010

This probably won’t go over well, but have made two variations of the “Bacon Explosion”. The first was with chicken(keep reading first). Took chicken strips,marinated over night in a zip lock bag with a variety of spices, choose your own. Next day, weaved the bacon( I used hickory smoked. I don’t own a smoker…yet!) Pounded the chicken down (gave it a good ole chicken “beat down”), laid out the chicken along with green peppers and onions. Then spread on BBQ sauce. Rolled the whole thing up and into the oven at 250 for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until you reach 165 with a temp probe. I was surprised at how good it really was. Did the same thing with a pork loin, but didn’t turn out as well. I have an idea for another version, but that will have to wait for another post.

RICK S. June 29, 2010

Hey guys just found your site and this recipe. Been making theses things for years as “The Ultimate Breakfast Roll”.
I use
1.5lb apple smoked bacon
2 lbs Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage
I weave the bacon as in yours,but I stretch the bacon alittle to include the entire 1.5 lbs. I use a flexible cutting board for the weave, use seasoned pepper on the top of the bacon, then flip the bacon so the seasoned pepper is now on the outside.
Then put down either wax or parchment paper over the bacon, evenly spread the sausage over the paper to the size of the bacon weave. Season with your favorite spice, I have been using “Prudhomme’s Magic Salt Free Seasoning” lately. Add any other meat you may want. For the world cup I made some “stuffed” with English bacon and Serrano ham. Roll tight using the wax/parchment paper as a sushi mat, transfer the sausage onto the bacon weave and roll again. Place the roll on a roasting rack in a cool oven (very important as the meat cooks very evenly and moister than if you put it in a hot pre-heated oven, we ALWAYS bake our unweaved bacon and start it in a cold oven @ 400 for about 45 minutes) and cook @ 350 for about 1.5hrs to an internal temp of 160.
I use my own recipe of apples, roasted jalapeno, maple syrup and beer finished with butter, reduced as a glaze and applied during the last 30 minutes.


I have also double matted (top and bottom)bacon and sausage as a large patty cooked on a rack as in the baked bacon above.


Mike June 30, 2010

I made one of these when they first published it. It was absolutely delicious. I did make one change. I added pepperjack cheese to the inside layer. YUMMMMMMMY.

Bacon Explosion is actually a new version of Morcon. It is still rolled with foil paper and baked in the oven. The difference between Morcon and Bacon Explosion is that, Bacon Explosion is easy to be mise-en-place and it is easy to be cook because of the thin meat of bacon and Morcon is the opposite. The doneness of the meat which is the bacon is medium well to attain its juiciness of the meat and probably with an apple sauce or honey; this Bacon Explosion experience would be appetizing.

I tried this today but on a scaled down size. After 20 minutes on the grill it looked great as I rolled it over. At 40 minutes on the grill I lifted the lid to discover that the bacon was on fire. Black strips of carbon with 3 inch flames coming from all over. I picked it up with a spatula and carried it into the kitchen where I placed it on a plate. Then I used the metal spatula to beat out the flames.

I gave a piece of the carbonized bacon to the dog. He spit it out on the floor.

I think that I may have had the grill turned up to high.

I made a half version as I am by myself. I used a pound of bacon, a pound of sausage, some nice garlic pepper rub, baby ray’s hot bbq sauce, some shredded chedder and pepperjack cheese and some serrano peppers. it took about 3 hours in the oven at 225 and it was, how can i put this, an orgasm in my mouth. I ate half of the loaf. That was last night. This morning, I’ve been on the can twice so far and as I type this, I’m clinching my butt. But was it worth it? Hell yeah!

Here is a twist you might try everybody if you have not already, Weave the bacon, 1.5 to 2lbs Turkey Tenderloin pounded flat between plastic. Put that on the bacon weave and season it with whatever. Next put chopped spinached leaves on the Turkey. This will enhance the bacon flavor in the turkey. Last thinly slice a block of cream cheese and layer over the spinach, turkey and bacon. Now roll this sum of a gun up and get some toothpicks and will look like a football. Toothpicks will help hold together. Now smoke it, (Good Luck Getting it Lit…. Just kidding) for about 3 to 3.5 hours or until to temperature. Let stand 20 minutes and slice. Hmmmmm Hmmmmm

Wow! A friend found this on your website on Thursday before a Bears-Vikings game in Chicago & I salivated over it for 4 days. Used 1lb of mild & 1lb of hot sausage & 2lbs of hickory smoked bacon. Made the “sausage/pig meatloaf” (I’ve dubbed it the Baconator) on Saturday in preparation for Sunday’s game. I was a little concerned about the cooking time since we typically get to the lot ~9ish before the 12 noon games…and I don’t have a smoker just a gas grill. So, I improvised by cooking in a crockpot (4hr timer) for ~90 minutes before headin to game. Once there, another 90 minutes on the grill with a little Hickory & Brown Sugar Sweet Baby Rays and it was Go Time! Absolutely sinful & delicious! The only thin that spared us from having heart attacks (besides the Bears win!) was that we split it between 6-8 people. Can only imagine that the smoker would have added another level of enjoyment.

Bob You troll – Happy Freaking 4th Of July. Check the Longevity for your country and this one Holmes. And get some dental help for god’s sakes.

Chorizo and Habaneros are excellent. NO CHEESE when you do this cause it is just a mistake – I grow my own habaneros and dehydrate them, powder them in the food processor seeds included, with garlic. then just dust the layers with that.

you would not believe the heat this provides!
The lower and slower you can cook these at the better, really makes a difference in the final product, chill it down and you will be able to slice this like summer sausage – the slices are incredible pizza toppings, and flaming hot cracker toppings with a nice square of chipotle Jack. No Kidding – at Thanks giving everyone screamed it was way too hot But that didn’t stop them from eating every bit of the tray that was set out.

deirdre January 25, 2011

I made this for the last Super Bowl the Steelers were in and won. Now that we are back again I have received requests for it again. It went so fast last time I’m going to go for it and order several just due to the amount of people I will need to feed and how great this was! THANK you from Pork loving Pittsburgh, & GO Stillers!

This looks so simple, yet incredibly satisfying. I’ll definitely be making this tomorrow for Superbowl Sunday, but with one small modification- adding cheese. Most likely pepperjack… or sharp cheddah. I don’t know. Regardless, I’m gonna have a hard time sleeping tonight due to the increasing anticipation for porkfest 2011.

BTW- The fun-sucking, tree-hugging, healthnut dumb-dumbs are so annoying. Just like anything that’s unhealthy for you can and should be enjoyed in moderation.

Mike February 24, 2011

This would be killing me but it’s so awesome that every-time I make it now someone eats it all up so I’m safe .. sort of.

I do not know how many versions any one of have tried so far but i have tried so many it’s hard to remember them all. I loved all of them but some work better than others.

I am Posting my fav right now

I know this may seem sacrilegious but the BBQ sauce is not my fav thing in this. so I leave that out.

Johnsonville Hot Italian sausage – break the skins of a a few of these and get the good stuff in one pile. Oh yeah – LOL
I have dehydrated my entire crop of peppers from last year so i use the dried pablanos and mix it in the sausage really well ( This is a trip cause the dehydrated nature of the peppers holds the juices and fat in the meat as it cooks by re-hydrating the peppers with pure heart stopping Yummyness LOL )
you see where I am going with this right?
well I am one to like extremely hot stuff, and I love garlic and onions as well. so I did another little trick. i took some of my dehydrated Habaneros – ( 10 of them ) put them in my food processor and powdered them and added Granulated garlic and used this to dust the sausage and bacon during the build and after.

the results are so amazing you would not believe it. I have made smallish ones – tightly wrapped and cooled and then sliced into rounds for Pizza and ravioli filling and really anything you can imagine.

This stuff is WICKED Nacho topping! no joke.
Make a Fat one – slice one slice – flop it ina frying pan and get it sizzling – drop and egg on it – slap a nice piece a cheese in it when its fried directly to the explosion slice – make you up a English muffin (Whole wheat of course so it’s healthy) BOOM! You have a Breakfast sandwich from HELL.

This site started me off and I have run so far with it I feel a little Bacon explosion crazy now. LOL

Did I mention Sushi Rolls? Oh Yeah bro. seriously – this stuff is versatile. LOL cut the slices into half moon shaped and load them into cut in half long ways and de seeded jalapenos with some sharp cheddar or Cream Cheese – wrap the whole pepper with a strand of Raw… BACON! and then put them on the grill – OMG! It’s Bacon Explosion Diablo. These are the best with some great Beer and better friends. LOL Might wanna use gloves to be handling them however. LOL

P.S. WARNING!!!! NEVER run to the rest room to relieve yourself with-ought scrubbing your hands thoroughly before acting.
Doesn’t matter if your just eating this stuff or making it.
Trust Me on this one, no amount of beer will fix this if you don’t.

Vicky March 20, 2011

Do you make your own Italian sausage? If so, when grinding up your pork, why not grind up the bacon also and add this to your sausage meat? That would be soo good! This looks wonderful but it looks like an Italian meat roll, some call it braciol, or brucialuna, instead of sausage. Good job! Can you imagine what the food police would do with this? LOL! Go for it!

Jason March 20, 2011

@Vicky – Yes, we grind our own sausage. We prefer to leave the bacon out of the grind so that the pieces are bigger, and to help keep them from getting soggy. We like our Explosions with a crispy bacon center, so we hold off on adding the fried bacon until the very last second!

Osborn_km April 10, 2011

I made two of these this weekend. My weave came out 6×6. For both, I used Sweet baby Ray’s honey BBQ sauce and Famous Dave’s rib Rub. I added Diced yellow onion and diced jalepenos to both. For one log, I used Hot Italian pork sausage and added shredded pepperjack cheese. For the second log I used sweet italian pork sausage and added slice American cheese. I smoke with apple wood shavings for about 1.5 hours then hickory wood shavings for 1 hour. I baked in the oven for the remainder of the cooking time at 225 F.

Next time I will try it with some of my homemade elk Hot Italian sausage.

Aaron May 19, 2011


Place it in the smoker with the seam on the bottom (seam down is so it’s stays together in a tight weave) and leave it.

If you’re using an upright or modified smoker, make sure you have a water pan or an aluminum pan to catch the bacon grease so it doesn’t catch on fire!

I’ve made this dish in the oven before and while it doesn’t get the smokey flavor it’s still damned good. I rolled mine a bit differently though, I laid my square out on parchment paper and rolled the meat and sausage together like you would a cinnamon roll. For my square I made as wide and as long as a slice of bacon and I only used one lb of sausage. I ended up with a roll about 2″ thick and as longs as a piece of bacon. I also used homemade breakfast sausage from a wild boar I’d shot. YUMMY!

Colin May 29, 2011

Tried it today and words can’t express how good it was. Used homemade bbq rub and my own sauce. I think next time I will use a breakfast sausage instead of Italian and also come up with a maple syrup glaze instead of bbq sauce. That way, I think a nice over easy egg or scrambled eggs would be the perfect compliment to this at breakfast at the hunting shack.

Ruth May 30, 2011

I’m Canadian. We love bacon here. I’ll be making this on Canada Day this year (July 1st!) but using Canadian made farmer’s sausage.

Luckily I won’t have to worry about being arrested for killing all my guests, since I too will suffer a heart attack from the bacon goodness.

Bacon! Eh?

Todd May 31, 2011

Made one this weekend with 1/2 regular ground beef and 1/2 spicy Italian sausage. It turned out terrific, and more universally enjoyed than the straight sausage one I made last year. Also added a cup of shredded cheese to the cooked bacon layer.

It took 3 hours on a weber bullet smoker, at just under 300 degrees.

Thanks bbqaddicts!

Rosanna August 8, 2011

Ok. Someone in the IT Spiceworks Community Forum posted a link to your site with the Bacon Explosion. Payday is on the 15th. I will be ordering one. I want to thank you ahead of time for making this available to the common people. I know in the distant past, it was only allowed to be eaten by Kings.
When I order mine, is there some way I could request that you cook the inner bacon the way you like it, verging on crispy, but not quite?
tty on Monday, August 15th.

Jason August 8, 2011

@Rosanna – You’re in luck, because that’s how we already prepare our commercial Bacon Explosions!

Malou August 9, 2011

I just made my first Bacon Explosion today. I live in Denmark and we do not have italian sausage – so I had to make my own. I dont have at smoker – so it was cooked in the oven. To give it smokey flavor, I used honey-hickory BBQ sauce.

Thank you for inventing this amazing thing :-D

The flavor was overwhelmingly good but unbelievably salty. We all had varied levels of heartburn later that night. Would we do it again? Probably not. Was it fun to make? Hell yeah… Good luck and enjoy the 300 or so points your LDL will spike after this.

Not Concerned About Death December 23, 2011

I noticed how the recipe and the pictures of the pan didn’t match. This concerns me. Judging by the 5×5 weave of your bacon, you wouldn’t even use 1 pound for this. I noticed each of your pounds had 12 slices, so 2 pounds of sausage would be WAY too much. Let’s say 1 pound of bacon and 1 pound of sausage with 18 slices of your favorite cheese? 6 slices to cover the bacon, 6 more on the sausage and another layer in the middle. To all you people who think you will have a heart attack…think about slicing this and sharing with your family. Sharing = what you learned about in Kindergarten. 1 slice out of this loaf is NOT going to kill you, thanks for caring. Oh, and yes…this WOULD be perfect for a sandwich.

Why do you need to roll up the sausage first and then the bacon?? why can’t you roll the whole thing bacon and all at the same time?

Jason January 16, 2012

@Brian – You don’t want the raw bacon weave to be rolled inside the sausage because it won’t crisp up. That’s why we fry the inside bacon. The bacon on the outside should on be wrapped around the exterior of the sausage.

Kathy January 21, 2012

With all the bad news we have heard over the years about bacon, just the picture alone can cause a heart attack. If you do decide to follow through, and create this, and eat it, have 911 on speed dial. You will need it.

Bacon Explosion = Instant death, unless the ambulance can get there fast enough.

Dean February 5, 2012

I’ve been wanting to try this since its big “explosion” back in 08. Today is the day. I can’t wait.

Ronnie Bailey February 5, 2012

That is amazing, I guess you could put vegatables in there and they would be flavored by the meat juices, delicious!

Brian February 5, 2012

I make this every year for the Superbowl. Small additions… after flattening the sausage, add some chunks of pepperjack and a couple sliced jalepenos. At completions, throw the sliced roll on a piece of white bread and top with coleslaw. Spicy, sweet and delicious!

Mike Evans March 8, 2012

UPDATE…I made this recipe and it is very tasty. I made my own Italian sausage. Beware, only a thin slice is all you need, but this log of pork is huge. Recommend slicing it in half and freezing half of it for later because half of it is about 10 or 12 servings, but you could slice it up as a party food. It’s very rich, so it will fill you up and stay with you for a long, long time. I ate 1 slice, about 1/3″, thick for breakfast, and didn’t want to eat anything else until dinner.

Melody June 1, 2012

As far as cooking in the oven, you can use a smoker box filled with mesquite chips…soak them, place them in the smoker box place in a pan in the corner of the oven, then place the pan with this wonderful Pork Extravaganza in the oven, bake at 165 Degrees F until proper internal temp reached. Don’t keep opening the oven…all the smoke will escape. If the smoke does seep out of the oven, open windows and doors and make your neighbors extremely jealous.

Kevin June 16, 2012

Whoops! I waited too long before inserting my meat probe (I know that sounds bad), and when I did, the meat was already to an internal temp of 182 degrees. Still, I mopped on some bbq sauce and let it sit in the smoker an additional five minuets. The result was WONDERFUL! I will be making this again but will keep a closer eye on the temp. I will be amazed if the result is any better pulling it at the proper temp. Tonight’s dinner would be hard to beat!

Sandy August 8, 2012

Do I measure just the thickest one and cook for that or combine the 2 measurements and cook for that amount of time. Also I am a newbie – by bud tells me each time I open the door I need to add 15 minutes to the cook time – this sounds reasonable enough no?

Thanks to anyone who can help!!!

This was amazing! I did make my own rendition though… Instead of BBQ, I went breakfast style and sweet. I used Neese’s sausage and maple syrup. The suggestion to used biscuits gave me the idea. I gave the bacon a cinnamon and brown sugar rub, then sausage with syrup and more crispy bacon with syrup. Rolled it up as suggested, and then smoked it with maple. Sliced up and on a biscuit, it is better than any sausage biscuit you’ve ever had! Next time its also getting gravy…

Cook low and slow, avoiding direct flame. Jason’s recommendation for cook time 1hr/1″ thickness @ 225F is nice even if there are other meats involved in the smoker (e.g., using the 3-2-1 pork rib method). Cheers!

Oh MY!

It looks so good!

I can only eat pork sparingly, eating this much pork would send me to hospital.

How ever instead of sausage, I put a mix of lamb and veal, I might be able to handle it.

I would though have to invite the children, and some neighbours to help eat it, that way it would insure portion control.

I like the idea of it on a biscuit.

This is a definite try.

Currently cooking this in my oven as I don’t have a smoker. Added cheese in the centre as per other comments. I have to say the comments about insta-heart attacks, oh how gross ect ect have me shaking my head. No one said “Make this for one person and then sit down and eat it in one sitting.” >_> I plan on slicing this like a meatloaf and serving with homemade coleslaw and bread rolls to 4 people, and left overs will be for sandwiches. :)

@Rick – Sorry for the slow reply. You should glaze at the end of the cooking process. Shoot for the last 15 minutes that the BE is on the smoker. It should be just enough time to set the sauce, but not burn it. Good luck!

Rick May 21, 2013

Thanks Jason, Guess I did it correctly.

I made two, other than being a bit too smoky for my taste I was very pleased with the results. I’ll make more and add cheese, onions , and maybe peppers next time.

Molly June 1, 2013

A friend dared me to make one of these and it seemed the perfect thing for my teenage son’s birthday meal. She suggested pre-baking it and then finishing on the smoker to keep it from drying so I’ll see how it goes. Don’t hate but I did substitute 1# ground turkey for sausage and to hide the turkey taste slathered some homemade garlic scape pesto before the cooked bacon chunks went on. Only worry I have now is what kind of sauce will marry well with that pesto. My son isn’t a sweet-bbq fan so maybe it will be sauceless. I think it will still get devoured and for those in attendance who are too good to sully their pristine arteries they can always have a serving of the ham I’ll be baking. ;) Thank you for the recipe and great photos. The comment thread has been a riot.

We were making these back in 2004 on the BBQ competition circuit on the front range in Colorado. These and everything else bacon we could do on the smoker. Bacon Fatties, Bacon Nirvana, Bacon Ecstasy, Bacon Logs, Bacon Extravaganzas, Bacon Bombs, whatever you want to call them, we did them with breakfast sausage and later with Farmland Pork and Bacon Sausage back then and recently have done them with jalapeno peppers (fire roasted first) and cream cheese in the very center of it all (the Fat Boy or A[tom] bomb). We also did things like ABT or Atomic Buffalo Turds (Poppers to most now days)Peppers cored, stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in Bacon and then smoked for up to 3 hours, Pig Candy which is bacon with a brown sugar coating and then smoked. We were doing just about anything bacon and smoked we could to take up time those nights we were up tending the smokers for competition.

Jason February 9, 2014

@Charlie – Turn off half the burners on your grill, and put the Bacon Explosion over those. This is called indirect heat. The BE will cook with the ambient temps trapped by the lid of your grill. Just make sure not to grill over direct heat. Bacon grease will drip down and catch fire.

Charlie February 9, 2014
