This is a little twist on the recipe for Bacon Explosion, and some would call it a sacrilege with regards to pork. Rather than wrapping ground pork and beef in bacon, I wrapped a pork tenderloin. The results were spectacular.

  • 1 Medium Pork Tenderloin (in a 2-pack, use one)
  • 2 lbs. thick sliced Bacon
  • ¼ Cup finely chopped Onions
  • ¼ Cup finely chopped red Bell Peppers
  • Dry Rub
  • BBQ sauce
  1. Wash and separate the 2 pieces of pork tenderloin. Save the second one for cooking alone (or make another explosion).
  2. Make a basket weave pattern with the bacon.
  3. Cut a slit lengthwise deep into the tenderloin and stuff with the veggies. You can use different ones if you like.
  4. Hold the tenderloin together and lay it slit side down on top of the basket weave bacon.
  5. Roll the bacon around the tenderloin, taking care to make sure the slit and bacon is held together.
  6. Lay the tenderloin on the hot grill where the bacon ends are at the bottom.
  7. Add the unwrapped tenderloin to the grill after the main one has cooked for about an hour.
  8. Cook until internal temp reaches 175, brushing with BBQ sauce every now and then to your preference.
  9. Take off the grill, and let rest for at least 10 min.
  10. Slice and enjoy…good on a hamburger bun!
