Bacon Bash was a success. We had over 100 bacon lovers attend this yearâ€™s event at the Harris Grill, which almost double last yearâ€™s numbers. We also consumed over 140 pounds of delicious Sugardale bacon.
I would like to thank everyone that came out and our sponsors, you all helped make this the best Bacon Bash this side of the Mississippi.
The climax of the event was the bacon eating contest, where long time reader of the blog, AJ Doyle, won first place. He was also the guy that made the amazing Atomic Buffalo Turds (bacon wrapped jalapeÃ±os). Another thing worth noting is a 12 year old girl won 3rd place and she was only 2 ounces away from the winner. AJ won a year supply of bacon from Sugardale (which he gave to the 3rd place winner for being so awesome), Bakon Vodka, $40 in Grill Bills, water bottle, and a Harris Grill t-shirt that says on the bacon â€œI got 99 problems but bacon ainâ€™t oneâ€.
Since I was working the door most of the day I didnâ€™t get a chance to take any photos/videos or try all the food. Lucky for me bacon lovers love to talk about their favorite food, so below are some links to what I found so far. If you would like to be added to this list just send me an email.
