Pork wrapped in pork wrapped in pork

Yep, you read that title right. Pork to the 3rd power! Why? Because why not!?

I started out by getting some ground sausage and flattening it into 1 large rectangle. As you can see from the photos, I did this on a piece of saran wrap. This was to make the rolling process easier.

After it is rolled out, sprinkle on your favorite BBQ rub. While you are at it, sprinkle some of that rub onto your pork tenderloin also.

Some pork tenderloins come with a tapered tip. I wanted mine to cook evenly so I cut the tip off and trimmed them both so they would be the same length. The remaining pork was diced up and fried up in a pan while I waited for the main event.

Once the tenderloin is nice and seasoned, put it on the flattened sausage and roll it on up.

Now, for the 3rd pork product … the bacon!

Again, I used saran wrap to help in the rolling. I started by laying out enough strips of bacon to cover the entire log. I overlapped the bacon so I didn’t have any blank spots.

Once the bacon is ready to go, sprinkle some more seasoning and roll your sausage log in the bacon using the saran wrap to help you roll.

Add some more seasoning to the outside and you are ready to grill.

For the grill, I setup my charcoal for indirect grilling. I put a mound on each side of my webber and placed the pork in the middle.

Grill this until the middle of the tenderloin reaches 145.

Slice up and enjoy!
