    While the grill is preheating, construct the bacon weave: Place a sheet of parchment on a clean surface. Arrange 5 slices of bacon horizontally and as close together as possible. Starting from the far left, weave the remaining 5 slices of bacon over and under the horizontal slices in an alternating fashion.

    Place the pork sausage roll on top of one edge of the bacon weave, then wrap the bacon around the roll to cover completely. Season with Traeger Pork and Poultry Rub.
