Celebration of bacon week continues – so far we have had:
How many consecutive days can I post about bacon? Is there some sort of Guiness world record I can achieve? These are the things that keep me up at night – it’s bacon me crazy.
Friend of Gusface, Bill – over at Three Dogs BBQ – posted this recipe a couple of weeks ago. I had made a mental note to try this as it reminded me fondly of the bacon explosion, now with bacon week upon us I figured there was no better time to attempt it!
I won’t re-iterate the entire post – the premise is simple enough:
Get a hot dog:
Coat it in meat – I used sausage meat for this as it was on special – as a result I didn’t add any further seasoning.
Looks appealing, right?
Then wrap in bacon and cook on indirect heat for around 45 minutes.
I glazed with BBQ sauce during the cook and hit it with some macadamia shell smoke.
Best to serve in a large hot dog bun – even with a larger bun this thing is absolutely ridiculous. I served with some fried onion and mustard.
Bill’s other name for this, ‘Gut Bomb’, is entirely accurate as later that night, trying to sleep, I could feel this just sitting there in my stomach.
Pretty damn tasty though! Would definitely consider rolling this out again in the future, perhaps for a boys night or something, but it’s definitely a sometimes food.
