Pitmaster Jason Day is the inventor of the Bacon Explosion, a torpedo-shaped fusion of 2 lbs. of bacon woven through and around 2 lbs. of sausage that is filled with bacon crumbles and covered in barbecue sauce.

The Bacon Explosion is aptly named, because it boomed onto the scene via the Internet in 2009 and has been a mainstay ever since. People may think Day strategically developed the Bacon Explosion, but Day admits the product was created more by “instinct” than anything else.

Day, head cook of the award-winning Burnt Finger BBQ team based in Kansas City, is a big fan of bacon, and he believes that bacon has a solid future in barbecue.

“Bacon is one of those things…it just pretty much makes everything better,” he says.

Lawrence Aylward, editor of MEAT+POULTRY, caught up with Day recently to discuss the story behind the creation of the Bacon Explosion and how it has managed to stay so popular. In this podcast, Day also elaborates on the future of bacon in barbecue.
