I believe we have all seen the Bacon Explosion and many have made it or a variation. I kept asking... Is it too much bacon and no one answered. Maybe the answer was obvious... one can never have too much bacon! :) So, for derby I decided to make my variation. I used 2# of Purnell's SMedium hot sausage and 2 # of Hormel pepper bacon. Then I added Cajun rub and a spicy Texas style BBQ sauce inside and out. It turned out quite tasty and I think many were surprised at how good it was.

How many people were you feeding? Was it the entree or more of an appetizer? That's a lot of pork product right there... :wink:

Yep - That is one good looking fattie! I can almost taste it! I don't have the patience to do the bacon weave. Step-son and one of his buddy's make them from time to time. Time to time is just about all yo can eat a slice or two - arteries start to harden just thinking about one.

Thanks for the kind words...

To answer a few questions...

That was an app for our Derby party... we had 8 folks there and I also did 2 pork butts. We had slaw, deviled eggs, green bean casserole, baked beans, and cheese grits. The apps were the fatty, blue cheese dip, spinach dip, and ABT's. We obviously had leftovers which I had for lunch yesterday and dinner. :)

For me... thats diet food! :shock: The bad things on the table were the green bean casserole, baked beans, cheese grits, crackers, and Hawaiian bread all of which I avoided. Based on my blood work after 3 months of that diet the doctor is very pleased. All the good things went up and the bad things went down. I am off blood pressure and cholesterol medication and my blood sugar is normal.

I know... it isn't conventional wisdom and that wasn't a conventional dinner at my house either. :lol: I think I am still stuffed from Saturday! Tonight will be grilled chicken and a salad.

Excellent, QJuju! In fact,it's got me thinking a slice of that fatty would be great on one of Grand Scale's Homer Simpson 2.0s instead of the sausage. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

That fattie looks awesome. I enjoy making and eating them, but only make them for special occasions (holidays/picnics) or I'd eat them all the time.
