Bacon Bash was a success. We had over 100 bacon lovers attend this year’s event at the Harris Grill, which almost double last year’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 jalapeños). 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 “I got 99 problems but bacon ain’t one”.

Since I was working the door most of the day I didn’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.

We are going to be talking about the event on this week’s Bacon LIVE (Wednesday at 7pm ET) so make sure you check us out live.

I can’t wait for next year’s Bacon Bash, it’s going to be big, better, and have even more bacon!

    You were listed on CNBC today in an article about a bacon shortage. I didn’t know you guys had a bacon bash. There is a road trip in my future for next year.

    Note: I buy the whole pig when I get bacon. My butcher already has my order. When the county fair is done, I will be in the bacon.
