The Bacon Explosion

January 28, 2009 |  6:07 pm

Bacon fanatic? You've no doubt heard of the Bacon Explosion, a bacon roll combining two pounds of bacon (woven and crispy) wrapped in and around two pounds of Italian sausage, with a little barbecue rub and sauce thrown in for added flavor.

It's the brainchild of Kansas City barbecuers Jason Day and Aaron Chronister, and since its original posting on their site, www.bbqaddicts.com, it's become one of the hottest recipes on the Internet.

Not a bacon fanatic... yet? Well, check it out: The Bacon Explosion is on the cover of today's New York Times Dining & Wine section, and as of this posting is the No. 1 e-mailed story on their site.

Don't know about you, but I'm thinking Super Bowl fare right about now....
