The Bacon Explosion

by David Lauterbach
2009 January 29

A recipe has recently surfaced on the web that is garnering more attention and web traffic than any White Castle stuffing recipe or Absolutely Ridiculous Burger ever could.

That recipe is for the Bacon Explosion from BBQ Addicts. Hailed by the New York Times as a recipe that “seems to unite conservatives and liberals, gun owners and foodies, carnivores and … well, not vegetarians and health fanatics.”

The Bacon Explosion is modestly called by its inventors “the BBQ Sausage Recipe of all Recipes.” The instructions for constructing this massive torpedo-shaped amalgamation of two pounds of bacon woven through and around two pounds of sausage and slathered in barbecue sauce first appeared last month on their site

The roll contains at least 5,000 calories and 500 grams of fat… so be smart and limit your intake to 3 meals per day… no snacking! And remember, angioplasty is fun to say but not so much fun to get.
