      I love this!!! I make it several times a year for Sunday football gatherings. If you really want to go all out, you can roll a pork tenderloin or venison steak/tenderloin up in the middle of it. I usually use venison, and all of my friends hover around the platter until it's all gone. I slow cook mine in the oven at 250 degrees until my meat thermo says it's done. If you want a crazy-crispy roll, flip it over and broil the bottom at the end of cooking to crisp up the bacon on the bottom.

      A buddy of mine from Mississippi found this recipe and we made it... Awesome, there was none left. We slow cooked it on the grill for about 5 hours (As my southern friend says-In the south food always taste better when it is cooked for long periods of time- maybe because it took so long we were just hungry) This is not something you make all the time it is not healthy at all, but it sure is good. This is a guys meal-NOT- my daughters and their friends loved it...

      My husband found this on a blog and was determined to make it, but it was raining, so he did it in a hot oven instead, which worked, but unfortunately he overcooked it. He used only one pound of bacon and my turkey sausage recipe here on zaar to make it not quite so artery clogging. He created his own bbq sauce and used the top rated Kansas City rub recipe here on zaar. It kind of turned out like a jazzed up meatloaf, but I think if he had pulled it out of the oven sooner (or bbq'd it), it would have been even more yummy. Maybe would have been better to use the full amount of bacon, too, just to up the fat content since our sausage wasn't pork.

      This is a great recipe! I saw it several years ago on the website and I think Jeff Phillips added his version to his new cookbook. Other than the fillings, it's about the same. One tip he uses is to use a gallon sized ziploc bag to roll out the sausage, just put it in the bag and seal it then snip a very small piece of the corners off to let the air escape then roll or smash it out. It forms the perfect sized rectangle of meat and the thickness is very uniform. Cheese and Jalapenos and onions and bacon and greens are all good filling choices. It can be made with turkey bacon and turkey sausage but why??? Thanks for helping get this great smoking recipe out!
