Breakfast Bacon Explosion

edited April 2012 in Pork
Wanted to try one of these for a while and thought it would make a good breakfast sandwich. It did. Varied from the traditional recipe and this is what I came up with. 
Sprinkled Basic bbq rub (from bge cook book) on bacon weave. Spread bulk sausage over top. Single layer of sliced american cheese. Layer of caramelized onion (fried in bacon fat of coarse). Layer of crumbled fried bacon. Rolled it up and smoked it with apple chunks @ 220* till I hit 160*. Glazed one half with honey and the other half with maple syrup. Removed @ 165* and served with eggs over easy, on toasted and buttered pumpernickel rye swirl.
This was by far the best breakfast sammy I've ever laid taste buds on!

    OK, wife had to hit me with a defribulator for just expanding the pics!
    But I'd do it again to have one on a nice roll.

    Sliced the leftovers to half an inch and fried them in a pan to reheat. The sausage firmed up and was less greasy than yesterday. The bacon had the same wonderful flavor, and the cheese managed to stay in place. So the next time I decide I want this, I think I will smoke it the day before so I can enjoy an egged breakfast and sleep in. Too bad I can't program my egg like my coffee maker.
