That turtle is wonderful, pacanis!!! I think I'll replace the "legs" with some sausages, and the "tail" and "head" with a different type of salsiccia.

Thanks for the idea, Jabbur. Brats might work. It was really a case of having a hard time crisping the bacon and not blackening the dogs. I even tried a foil tent over the hot dogs. Maybe something with a different kind of casing would work better. It's worth a shot.

Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play with your food?

OMG. Excellent tutorial, Pacanis! I will eat with my eyes, as all that porky goodness will put my cholesterol over the edge. Dang. Bacon, food of the gods.

That's why we like it here, we are encouraged to play with our food.

Thank you very much, DL.
I'm sure you could weave turkey bacon if you had a mind to

Turkey ain't no pig. Extremely poor substitute. I figure if and when I reach 80 or 90, all hell and bacon will break loose.

Ya got that right!
Heck I remember years ago, at deer camp, we were all responsible for one meal or food item. I brought my best friend with me for the first (and last) time and he brought SIZZLEAN! I can still hear everyone "commenting" while sitting around the tables that first breakfast... Within the hour someone was headed into town for large quantities of real BACON
I have no idea what he was thinking, Just because he liked it

That turtle burger is still a work in progress. The dang hot dogs cook too quick! I'll get it down one of these days though.
Can they be cooked separately and assembled just before serving?
