BaconThis week has been filled with bacony goodness, and the weekend looks to be more of the same. Tonight we’re heading to Des Moines, Iowa for tomorrow’s Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival.

Blue Ribbon Bacon FestivalAs I mentioned earlier, we’re headed up to Iowa this weekend for the 2nd annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival. The itinerary starts out with Bacon Bloody Marys at 10:00 am and steamrolls into a full fledged bacon eating contest at 3:30.  Aaron and I will be on hand with 30 Bacon Explosions to make sure there’s no shortage in pork, and Mr. Bacon Pants will be there filming for his bacon documentary.  I’m evisioning the entire day to be exactly like the movie Beerfest, but with mountains of bacon as far as the eye can see.  Unfortunately this glorious event is completely sold out, so we’ll be bootlegging video footage throughout the day.  Keep an eye on our twitter accounts (@BBQAddicts and @BBQAddictsJason) for all the porky details.
