"This is my version of the Bacon Explosion. There are many versions on the web whether it's called a pork fatty, bacon bomb, etc...No matter how you slice it, it's an insane barbecue flavor in an artery-clogging roll. If you have a smoker, you have to try this one. Remember, moderation is the key when eating a bacon explosion. Enjoy."

thick-cut bacon, divided
barbeque spice rub, divided
bulk pork sausage
finely shredded Cheddar cheese
green onions, thinly sliced
1 (18 ounce) bottle
We modified the interior meat to Sweet Italian sausage and ground chicken breast, left out the cheese and bacon crumbles on the interior. Baked, tented for 2 hour at 400. It fed 6 adults and everybody took some home. It was good, but I wished for crispier bacon.
Wow this was great! I made a few changes but not enough to really throw off the recipe. I used 1 lb of ground beef and 1 lb of ground pork sausage, no garlic and no spice rub. The child and I aren't spice nuts. In the end, Dad said "More BBQ sauce!" I had added 1/2 cup to the meat mix, maybe more next time. Also, I baked mine in the oven at 350 for 2 hours and 45 minutes on a roasting rack, serious drippings!! Use a meat thermometer to get 165 degrees. I would definitely do this again. Serious meat lovers meal.
