Okay. So, today's run was nice and easy. The wife and I went for a quick jog around the neighborhood. She's been under the weather and is just easing back into things so that she can run in the Get in Gear 5K in a couple of weeks. I didn't mind cutting back a little for today because I'll have a hefty bike tomorrow afternoon in Madison We did 2.32 miles in 28:30. It wasn't a blistering pace, but I can think of worse ways to enjoy the beautiful weather.
But I don't want to write about my workout today. The main story today is my first attempt at a Bacon Explosion for my buddy Doc's bachelor party this weekend. Let's get started now shall we.
First I got together my ingredients.
2 pounds of thick-cut bacon
2 pounds of loose Italian sausage
1 bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce
Some of my own special BBQ Rub
1/4 of an onion.
The next step was laying out a 12 inch by 12 inch lattice of bacon. In my case, that meant a 7 slice by 7 slice pig blanket.
Now, let's spread on some of my special rub.
Over the top of the rub goes the 2 pounds of Italian sausage (mild Italian - we are in the Midwest you know) patted down into a ginormous patty.
And chopped onion...
Then wrap the log in the bacon-lattice
