Queso Bacon explosion fattie

TerrebanditTerrebandit Posts: 1,532
First one on the BGE I will affectionately call it a queso bacon explosion fattie because that's describes it best. Ingredients are Kraft Velveta, Rotella, Jimmy Dean original pork sausage, rub, and a bacon weave. 275 indirect heat to 175 internal. Took about 2.5 hrs. imageimage

    Little more cheese and I would eat the whole thing. That amount of cheese-- I would hit half of it. B-)

    Yeah, I think some of it leaked out but other pieces had more. I ate those ones. :)

    Looks Awesome!  Can you please share details on the quantities of the ingredients as well as the process of how you shaped the sausage around the queso.

    I used about 1.5 lb of jimmy dean pork sausage. I flattened out the sausage to about a 1/2 inch think square patty that was about 3/4 the length of a bacon strip on each side. I chunked up a good amount of Velveta cheese and opened up a can of rotel. I spread the cheese and rotel in the center of the sausage pattie, leaving about a 1 inch uncovered edge around the perimeter. I put it back in the fridge to firm everything up. Then i rolled it up with the assistance of a spatula, sealed up the ends to prevent leakage, and added a bacon weave blanket over the top of the sausage roll. I also put a good coating of rub over the bacon weave.
