UPDATE: Welcome BBQ Addicts Bacon Explosion fans. You are still (at least) one step behind me.
I saw this guy's cheese-filled bacon lattice and thought "Amateur Hour." Although the bacon lattice is rather inspiring, a bacon-cheese roll-up left me feeling unfulfilled. Cheese and bacon is a good start, but more heft was needed to make this a satisfying entree or even appetizer. My answer was to add pork sausage and muenster cheese.
And a poblano chile.
I rolled out the sausage slightly, added the grated cheese and diced chile, and then could not refrain from adding a layer of sliced pepperoni.
The sausage fattie was rolled up in the precooked bacon wrap. Note that the bacon was slightly undercooked so it would remain pliable and would not overcook on my smoker.
Rolled up and onto the smoker, cooked low & slow over hickory smoke.
Voila, good enough to eat. The Ultimate Fattie, or soon to be known as Redneck Sushi.
If they served these at Gitmo, we'd be talking crimes against humanity.
Serving suggestion, cut slices of the finished fattie and serve on small hamburger rolls to make really greasy pork sliders.
Eat your hearts out, cholesterol starved America.
