    These bacon festivals are driving up the price of bacon and it pisses me off.

    Re: BACONFEST COMING TO IOWA STATE!

    Don't be too sure about winning the bacon eating contest. I competed in the first two bacon eating contests at the Blue Ribbon Bacon Fest at El Bait Shop/The High Life Lounge in 2008 and 2009, and it's not quite as easy as you would think.

    First, they only gave you ONE glass of water to wash it down with. That's one glass of water for five minutes of eating bacon at full speed.

    Second, they overcooked the bacon both times. Not overcooked like cheap all-you-can-eat buffet bacon sitting under the heat lamps for 3 hours, but more crispy than chewy. That plays hell on your cheeks and tongue, and your throat feels like you're swallowing glass by the end. Plus, see point #1 again. Hard bacon & limited water is a bad combination.

    Third, they had the bacon eating contest at about 2pm. That's at least 4 hours of sitting around drinking PBR and sampling bacon dishes at the festival. You COULD sit in a corner listening to "Eye of the Tiger" on your earphones and foregoing any bacon at the festival, but why? You're there to eat free bacon & have fun. Doing otherwise is just crazy. Especially when you don't win anything but bragging rights when you win the contest.

    My attitude was "I'm going to enter the contest, eat some bacon, and I will finish where I finish." I figured that getting to eat bacon on someone else's dime meant that I won, even if I didn't "win". Know what I mean?

    Yes pork is going up, but now butchers are selling pork belly at the same price as cured sliced bacon. I can't say that I blame them but it's a pain.
