Boerewors Bacon Explosion

BBQ Date: Early July
BBQ Weather: Perfect!

After missing out on Ben's Bacon Explosion last weekend, I was determined to give it a go. However, I wanted a truly South African twist on the experience. A famous sausage from the Rainbow Nation is called Boerewors (pronounced 'bu-revors'), which is a mixture of Pork, Beef and at least 30% fat, loaded with spices such a coriander, pepper, nutmeg, cloves and garlic. Its truly a delight bbq'd and placed on a bun. Needless to say, I substituted pork sausage meat, with Boerewors sausage meat from my local provider 'The Savana' shop.

I followed the now famous Bacon Explosion recipe, but with a few of my own twists. The ingredients are as follows:

2xPack of Boerewors (I only used 1&1/2 sausages meat)
30xPeices streaky bacon
Memphis Magic Dust
BBQ Sauce of Choice - I used Mississippi Sweet Apple in the abscense of my own.
