Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour in Pittsburgh


A lot of my Pittsburgh readers have been asking, “Mosley, when are you going to do a bacon event here”? Well, today I have an answer: September 26th, 2009 the Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour is making a stop at the Harris Grill on Ellsworth Ave. It will be presented by Vande Rose Farms and hosted by Heather Lauer (Bacon Unwrapped) and me (Mr. Baconpants).

Vande Rose Farms will be supplying their Artisan Dry Cured bacon so the Harris Grill can make several bacon appetizers. Iowa Farm Families will also be showing off there popular Pepper Bacon and Nitrate-Free Applewood Bacon. CoCo’s Cupcake Café will be creating a bacon cupcake to feature at the event. Also, there will be a bacon eating contest with an Original Bacon Explosion going to the winner.
